Abstract: Recently, Cuntz and Li introduced the $ C^*$-algebra $ \mathfrak{A}[R]$ associated to an integral domain $ R$ with finite quotients. In this paper, we show that $ \mathfrak{A}[R]$ is a partial group algebra of the group $ K\rtimes K^\times $ with suitable relations, where $ K$ is the field of fractions of $ R$. We identify the spectrum of these relations and we show that it is homeomorphic to the profinite completion of $ R$. By using partial crossed product theory, we reconstruct some results proved by Cuntz and Li. Among them, we prove that $ \mathfrak{A}[R]$ is simple by showing that the action is topologically free and minimal.
