The safe payments computations include consideration of the partners loss


absorption power and the priority of intervening cash distributions before the
last cash distribution.

5.

The loan payable to Adam has the same legal status as the partnerships
other liabilities according to the UPA of 1997, but is likely subordinated to the
partnerships outside liabilities. After payment of the accounts payable, the
deficit balance in Adams capital account needs to be remedied either
through cash contribution or setoff against the loan. If Adam were to
contribute additional cash to eliminate his deficit, answer a would be
correct. However, since the problem does not mention a cash contribution,
setoff is the only remedy for the deficit and answer c is the best solution.

6.

Partnership creditors have first claim to partnership assets

7.

After the settlement of accounts, partners are required to make additional


contributions to the partnership to satisfy partnership obligations.
