Section 10A-8A-4.01Partner's rights and duties.

(a) Each partner is deemed to have an account that is:

(1) credited with an amount equal to the money plus the value of any other property, net of the amount of any liabilities, the partner contributes to the partnership and the partner's share of the partnership profits; and

(2) charged with an amount equal to the money plus the value of any other property, net of the amount of any liabilities, distributed by the partnership to the partner and the partner's share of the partnership losses provided that a partner shall not be charged with any share of partnership loss attributable to a debt, obligation, or liability for which the partner is not personally liable under Section 10A-8A-3.06 unless the loss is satisfied out of partnership assets.

(b) Each partner is entitled to an equal share of the partnership profits and, subject to the limitations in subsection (a)(2) of this section, is chargeable with a share of the partnership losses in proportion to the partner's share of the profits.

(c) A partnership shall reimburse a partner for payments made and indemnify a partner for liabilities incurred by the partner in the ordinary course of the business or not for profit activity of the partnership or for the preservation of its business or not for profit activity or property; provided, however, no partner in a limited liability partnership shall be required as a consequence of the indemnification to make any payment on behalf of the limited liability partnership to any other partners to the extent that the payment would be inconsistent with Sections 10A-8A-3.06, 10A-8A-8.06, or 10A-8A-8.07.

(d) A partnership shall reimburse a partner for an advance beyond the amount of capital the partner agreed to contribute.

(e) A payment or advance made by a partner which gives rise to a partnership obligation under subsection (c) or (d) constitutes a loan to the partnership which accrues interest from the date of the payment or advance.

(f) Each partner has equal rights in the management and conduct of the partnership business or not for profit activity.

(g) A partner may use or possess partnership property only on behalf of the partnership.

(h) A partner is not entitled to remuneration for services performed for the partnership, except for reasonable compensation for services rendered in winding up the business or not for profit activity of the partnership.

(i) A difference arising as to a matter in the ordinary course of business or not for profit activity of a partnership may be decided by a majority of the partners. An act outside the ordinary course of business or not for profit activity of a partnership and an amendment to the partnership agreement may be undertaken only with the consent of all of the partners.

(j) This section does not affect the obligations of a partnership to other persons under Section 10A-8A-3.01.
