The solution of Question 21 Chapter 2 of +2-A

 Date Particulars L.F. Debit Credit April 1 Profit and Loss Appropriation A/c Dr 82,500 To Naresh’s Capital A/c 42,500 To Sukesh’s Capital A/c 40,000 (Being interest on capital credited to partners capital account) Profit and Loss Appropriation A/c Dr 1,17,500 To Naresh’s Capital A/c 58,750 To Sukesh’s Capital A/c 58,750 (Profit share transferred among partners)

 Profit and Loss Appropriation Account A/cfor the year ended 31st March 2019 Particulars Amount Particulars Amount To Interest on Capital A/c *1 By Profit and Loss Adjustment A/c 2,00,000 Naresh’s Capital A/c 42,500 Sukesh’s Capital A/c 40,000 82,500 To Profit Transferred to *2 Naresh’s Capital A/c 58,750 Sukesh’s Capital A/c 58,750 1,17,500 2,00,000 2,00,000

Working Note:

*1: -Calculation of Total Interest on Ashish’s Capital, and Aakash’s Capital

 In the Question there closing capital is given. So, we have to calculate opening capital balance as shown below: – Particulars Amount Amount Capital Balance at the end of the year 3,00,000 3,00,000 Add: – drawing during the year against Capital 50,000 Add: – Drawing during the year against the profit 1,00,000 1,00,000 Capital Balance at the beginning of the year 4,50,000 4,00,000

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
Naresh’s Capital
from the 01/04/2019 to 30/09/2019= 4,50,000
During the year he withdrawal capital of Rs. 50,000, So his Total capital will be 4,00,000 (4,50,000-50,000)
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
= (4,50,000 X 10/100 X 6/12) + (4,00,000 X 10/100 X 6/12)
= 22,500 + 20,000
Total Interest on Naresh’s Capital = 42,500/-
Sukesh’s Capital = 4,00,000
= 4,00,000 X 10/100
Total Interest on Sukesh’s Capital = 40,000/-

*2: -Calculation of share of profit of Naresh’s and Sukesh’s
Profit Sharing Ratio = 1:1 (assumed as per provision of act Because ration is not given)
Net Profit after interest= 1,17,500
= 1,17,500 X 1/2
Profit share of Naresh’s = 58,750/-
= 1,17,500 X 1/2
Profit share of Sukesh’s = 58,750 /-
