For example, partner A may be responsible for 60 percent of a $10,000 debt.

-Right of offset – amount owed to the partner offsets up to the debit capital amount If the partner is insolvent and the right of offset is not applied, the personal creditors of the partner with the debit balance would be paid the amount of their claims up to the amount of Loan payable (by the P) to the partner *recommended that the rule not be applied without agreement from the partners when a partner-creditor is personally insolvent.

The partners then sell the company's assets, which can result in a gain or a loss.

The money received from selling the assets goes to pay the debts the company owes, even if the company sells the assets for less then their worth.

When one of several partners cannot pay the owed share of the money, the other partners pay that partner's share, splitting the remaining balance based on agreed-upon loss-sharing percentages.

The partners who did fulfill their obligations can later sue the partner who failed to pay for the money owed if desired.

The liquidation of a partnership starts with a review of the company's assets, including property and cash, and its debts.
