Assessment 4 Instructions: Partnerships


Complete two exercises in accounting for the equity of a pass-through entity, such as an LLC, limited partnership, or general partnership structure.


The partnership form of business ownership is quite popular. One reason is that partnerships are easy to create the double taxation inherent in corporate ownership can be avoided. However, the unlimited liability normally restricts the growth potential for most partnerships. As a result, most partnerships remain small in relation to their larger corporate brothers.

During the formation and operation stages of a partnership’s life, several issues require closer study because of their impact on the financial status of individual partners. Initially, there is the issue of allocating the initial contributions of each partner in relation to their ownership and liability share. During ongoing operations, the issue of allocating annual income and losses sustained by the business must be handled. Lastly, the issues of taking on new partners and the withdrawal of current partners will affect the financial stability of the partnership.

A business unit can exist indefinitely through the periodic admission of new partners. However, sometimes the termination of business activities and liquidation of property can take occur, and there are many potential reasons for this. Several important financial issues surface during these times in the life of a partnership.
