§ 9A-807 - Settlement of accounts and contributions among partners


MD Corp & Assn Code § 9A-807 (2013) What's This?

(a) Discharge of obligations required. -- In winding up a partnership's business, the assets of the partnership, including the contributions of the partners required by this section, must be applied to discharge its obligations to creditors, including, to the extent permitted by law, partners who are creditors. Any surplus must be applied to pay in cash the net amount distributable to partners in accordance with their right to distributions under subsection (b) of this section.

(b) Amount of settlement. -- Each partner is entitled to a settlement of all partnership accounts upon winding up the partnership business. In settling accounts among the partners, the profits and losses that result from the liquidation of the partnership assets must be credited and charged to the partners' accounts. The partnership shall make a distribution to a partner in an amount equal to any excess of the credits over the charges in the partner's account. A partner shall contribute to the partnership an amount equal to any excess of the charges over the credits in the partner's account but excluding from the calculation charges attributable to an obligation for which the partner is not personally liable under § 9A-306(c) of this title.

(c) Amount of contribution. -- If a partner fails to contribute the full amount required under subsection (b) of this section, all of the other partners shall contribute, in the proportions in which those partners share partnership losses, the additional amount necessary to satisfy the partnership obligations for which they are personally liable under § 9A-306(c) of this title. A partner or partner's legal representative may recover from the other partners any contributions the partner makes to the extent the amount contributed exceeds that partner's share of the partnership obligations for which the partner is personally liable under § 9A-306(c) of this title.

(d) Discharge of later obligations. -- After the settlement of accounts, each partner shall contribute, in the proportion in which the partner shares partnership losses, the amount necessary to satisfy partnership obligations that were not known at the time of the settlement.

(e) Liability of estate of deceased partner. -- The estate of a deceased partner is liable for the partner's obligation to contribute to the partnership.

(f) Creditors may enforce contribution requirement. -- An assignee for the benefit of creditors of a partnership or a partner, or a person appointed by a court to represent creditors of a partnership or a partner, may enforce a partner's obligation to contribute to the partnership.

(g) Exception for limited liability partnership. -- Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section, a partner of a limited liability partnership shall have no obligation to make a contribution to the partnership, whether directly or indirectly by way of a charge against the partner's account or otherwise, with respect to any partnership obligations for which the partner has no personal liability under § 9A-306 of this title.
