Calculation of interest on partner’s Drawings
If partners withdrawal the same amount of drawing on a regular basis then we can calculate the interest on drawing with help of following formula: –
Interest on Drawing = Total Drawings X Rate of Interest X Period/12 Months
Rate of Interest = 6%
Period = the period/time will be calculated with the help of following formula: –

Period = Time left after 1st withdrawal + Time left after Last withdrawal
2

1. Calculation of interest on Muthu’s Drawings:

Muthu’s withdrawal at the beginning of every month = 200 p.m. Therefore, total drawings of the year= Rs.2,400.
It means 1st withdrawal has made on 01-04-2018
So, Time left from 1-4-2018 to 1-3-19 in 12 Months
And last withdrawal has made on 1-3-2019
So, Time left from 1-3-2019 to 31-3-2019 is 1 month.

Now, 0put this time period in the formula

Period = 11 + 1
2
Period = 13
2
Period = 6.5

Total Drawings = 2,400

Interest on Drawing = 2,400 X 6 X 6.5
100 12
             
Interest on Drawing = 78        

2. Calculation of interest on Krishnan’s Drawings:

Muthu’s withdrawal at the end of every month = 100 p.m. Therefore, total drawings of the year = Rs.1,200.
It means 1st withdrawal has made on 31-04-2018
So, Time left from 31-4-2018 to 31-3-19 in 11 Months
And last withdrawal has made on 31-3-2019
So, Time left from 31-1-3-2019 to 31-3-2019 is 0 months.
Now, put this time period in the formula:

Period = 11 + 0
2
Period = 11    
2
Period = 5.5

Total Drawings = 1,200

Interest on Drawing = 1,200 X 6 X 5.5
100 12
             
Interest on Drawing = 33
