Can A Partnership Continue After The Sale Of A Partner'S Entire Interest ?

No. A partnership terminates when one of the following events takes place. All its operations are discontinued and no part of any business, financial operation, or venture is continued by any of its partners in a partnership. At least 50% of the total interest in partnership capital and profits is sold or exchanged within a 12-month period, including a sale or exchange to another partner.
