Chapter 16 - Partnerships: Liquidation

42. A partnership may be involved in "Dissociation" or "Dissolution". Required: Describe "Dissociation" and "Dissolution." Dissociation is the legal description of the withdrawal of a partner including the following: i. Partner's death. ii. Partner's voluntary withdrawal, i.e. retirement. iii. Judicial determination. Not all dissociations result in a partnership's liquidation. Many partner dissociations involve only a buyout of the withdrawing partner's interest rather than a winding up and liquidation of the partnership's business. Dissolution involves dissolving of the partnership and winding up of the partnership business. Dissolutions can occur: i. In a partnership at will. A partnership agreement can avoid this situation. ii. In a partnership for a definite term or specific undertaking. iii. By an event that makes it unlawful to carry on the partnership business. iv. By a judicial determination. A "Dissociation" that results in liquidation has the same end result as "Dissolution".

43. Listen and Hear are thinking of dissolving their partnership. Listen has a friend who told him to complete a "lump-sum" liquidation. Hear wants to complete an "installment" liquidation. They have come to you for advice. What do you recommend and Why? A. "Lump-sum" liquidation and Installment" liquidation does not represent a choice in procedures. They represent different points in time. A Lump-Sum" liquidation takes place when all of the affairs of the partnership can be ended at the same time and all of the resulting cash can be distributed to the partners at that time. "Installment" liquidation is what normally occurs because the partners want access to some cash as soon as possible, and all of the partnership assets have to be sold and liabilities paid. The preparation of a "Safe-Payments Schedule" can allow this to happen in an orderly manner.
