Debt and return pursuit: Air Passenger Duty: Who is liable to pay the debt? Partners and partnerships

The recovery procedure is the same as for recovery of a VAT debt.

Where a partnership continues to trade but a partner ceases to be a member of thepartnership, his liability for partnership debts continues until the date on which wereceived notification of the change in membership. Section 36 (1) of the Partnership Act1890 provides:

“Where a person deals with a firm after a change in its constitution
he is entitled to treat all apparent members of the old firm as still being members of the firm until he has notice of the change.”  

However, we must take into account properly notified changes in the partnership from thedate when we become aware of them, and this may mean apportioning liability on a dailybasis.
