Responsibility of partners

6(1)Anything required or authorised to be done under this Part of this Act by or in relation to the purchaser under the transaction is required or authorised to be done by or in relation to all the responsible partners.

(2)The responsible partners in relation to a transaction are—

(b)any person who becomes a member of the partnership after the effective date of the transaction.

(3)This paragraph has effect subject to paragraph 8 (representative partners).

Joint and several liability of responsible partners

7(1)Where the responsible partners are liable—

(b)to make a payment in accordance with an assessment under paragraph 29 of Schedule 10 (recovery of excessive repayment), or

(c)to a penalty under this Part of this Act or to interest on such a penalty,

the liability is a joint and several liability of those partners.

(2)No amount may be recovered by virtue of sub-paragraph (1)(c) from a person who did not become a responsible partner until after the relevant time.

(3)The relevant time for this purpose is—

(a)in relation to so much of a penalty as is payable in respect of any day, or to interest on so much of a penalty as is so payable, the beginning of that day;

(b)in relation to any other penalty, or interest on such a penalty, the time when the act or omission occurred that caused the penalty to become payable.

(3)A representative partner means a partner nominated by a majority of the partners to act as the representative of the partnership for the purposes of this Part of this Act.
