This liability will be repaid with interest at rates and times to be determined by a majority of the Partners within the limits of what is required or permitted in the Act.

Such debts may have preference or priority over any other payments to Partners as may be determined by a majority of the Partners.

An individual capital account (the "Capital Accounts") will be maintained for each Partner and their initial capital contribution will be credited to this account. Any additional capital contributions made by any Partner will be credited to that Partner's individual capital account.
