Note: This is a verbatim copy of Statement of Practice D12.
This statement of practice was originally issued by The Commissioners for HMRC on 17 January 1975 following discussions with the Law Society and the Allied Accountancy Bodies on the Capital Gains Tax treatment of partnerships. This statement sets out a number of points of general practice which have been agreed in respect of partnerships to which TCGA 1992, s 59 applies.
The enactment of the Limited Liability Partnerships Act 2000, has created, from April 2001, the concept of limited liability partnerships (as bodies corporate) in UK law.

For the avoidance of doubt, this statement of practice does not apply to the members of a limited liability partnership which ceases to be ‘fiscally transparent’ by reason of its not being, or its no
