Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to our Partnership if we want to dissolve it?

If the two of you decide to dissolve your Partnership, you will need to go through a formal process. This will involve filing paperwork with your state’s secretary of state office and notifying all affected parties, such as customers and suppliers. The dissolution process will vary from state to state, so be sure to consult your local laws.

What happens to our Partnership contracts and agreements?

The assets and liabilities of the Partnership will become the responsibility of the individual partners upon dissolution. This means that the partners will need to divide up these assets and liabilities equally.

What is realization account?

The Realization Account is prepared at the time of dissolution of a Partnership firm. This account is prepared to show the net profit (or loss) made by the partners as a result of liquidation of assets and dissolution of the business.
