Just like any other business a partnership can get into debt. It may fail to generate enough income to cover costs or simply have cash flow issues that lead into company debt. In many cases partnerships are made up of people who are married or in civil partnerships. When this kind of business gets into trouble the process is reasonably simple. because of the association of the partners their business and personal assets are likely to be identical. Therefore creditors can be paid from the liquidation of these assets during bankruptcy.
The situation can get a lot more complex when the partnership is made up of business partners who have different levels of personal assets.
