Basic Partnership Accounting
¾ Forming a Partnership
Initial investments are to be entered in the partnership records. These investments
should be recorded at the fair market value of the assets at the date of their transfer to
the partnership (no amortization should be included). However, investments of A/R
should be recorded at full value, with the addition of doubtful accounts
