220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0502 Partnership. Transfers of properties from a corporation to a partnership with no change in the percentages of interest owned by the shareholders and the partners do not result in changes in ownership. However, a subsequent transfer of all partnership interests to a newly formed limited partnership composed of two corporate general partners (2 percent ownership interests) and the shareholders of the original corporation (98 percent limited ownership interests) is a change in ownership of the partnership properties unless the limited partnership is a continuation of the original partnership.
Corporation Code section 15031 provides that the dissolution of a partnership is caused by the admission of a new partner unless otherwise provided in the partnership agreement prior to admission of the new partner. If there is no "continuation clause", a new partnership with different ownership interests comes into existence, and transfers to it result in changes in ownership. C 6/16/1989.
