Partnership (Prosecution) (Scotland) Act 2013

This Act came into force at the end of April 2013 to address a loophole which prevented a partnership from being found guilty of a criminal offence because it had been dissolved.  The legislation states that the dissolution of a partnership will no longer bar prosecution provided proceedings are brought within five years of the dissolution.  Changes in membership shall also not prevent a partnership from being prosecuted.  As regards incoming partners, they should complete comprehensive due diligence to ensure they are aware of the extent of the liabilities of the partnership.
