Q. Back in 2005, how would a Florida general partnership transfer its assets when it changes to a corporation?
A: You have to prepare a Bill of Sale and other transfer documents depending on the nature of the assets from the GP to the Corp. This would be the capital contribution of each partner as each partner would become a shareholder in proportionate to his or her partnership percentage. You would also prepare a Dissolution of Partnership.
