Piecemeal Realizations and Distributions

Partnership dissolutions may take a substantial number of days even months) so it is unlikely that all cash generated will be simultaneous, unless the business is sold off as a going concern, i.e. a single unit.

The partners may not be willing to wait for such long durations for the process to be complete before receiving their repayments of capital.

It is therefore common practice to make interim distributions to partners as soon as a reasonable amount of cash is available.  However, all liabilities must have been paid off by the time any distribution is made to a partner.
