Working Note: –

*1: -Calculation of Total Interest on Kamal’s Capital, and Kapil’s Capital
Note: – In this case, the partners introduced and withdrawal their capital during the year, so that’s why we have to calculate the interest on capital according to period.

Interest on Capital = Capital X Rate of Interest X Period
Kamal’s Capital
from the 01/04/2019 to 30/09/2019= 5,00,000
on 1st oct 2019 he introduced new capital of Rs. 1,00,000, So his Total capital will be 6,00,000 (5,00,000+1,00,000)

from the 01/10/2019 to 31/03/2020= 6,00,000
Rate of Interest = 10%
So, we have to calculate the depreciation of two periods of 6 months each as shown follows
= (5,00,000 X 10/100 X 6/12) + (6,00,000 X 10/100 X 6/12)
= 25,000 + 30,000
Total Interest on Kamal’s Capital = 55,000/-

Kapil’s Capital
from the 01/04/2019 to 30/09/2019= 5,00,000
on 1st oct 2019 he withdrawal capital of Rs. 1,00,000, So his Total capital will be 4,00,000 (5,00,000 – 1,00,000)
from the 01/10/2019 to 31/03/2020= 4,00,000
Rate of Interest = 10%
So, we have to calculate the depreciation of two periods of 6 months each as shown follows
= (5,00,000 X 10/100 X 6/12) + (4,00,000 X 10/100 X 6/12)
= 25,000 + 20,000
Total Interest on Kapil’s Capital = 45,000/-
