Partnership Debt

Partnership Debt | Business Debt

When you are in a Partnership and you run into financial difficulty, then both Partners become joint and severally liable for all of the business debts.

This means all partners can be pursued for the debt; it is not divided up. If the creditors cannot get payment of the debt from one partner, then they will pursue the other partner. i.e. if one of the partners has no assets and wants to go bankrupt and the other partner has assets and is solvent, then they can be pursued for all of the debt. The partner with no assets can go bankrupt and effectively walk away. Many partners do not understand this when partnerships are formed.

The ideal situation is to avoid this and seek help as soon as possible about your debts. There are many more angles to partnerships and you should always seek specialist advice if in any doubt. Have a look at the debt solutions below or call us for further information.
