Working Note : 

Old Ratio of X, & Y = 4 : 3  
New Ratio of X, & Y = 2 : 1 

Calculate the Sacrificing or Gaining Ratio of Partners
Sacrificing or Gaining Ratio = Old Ratio – New Ratio

A’s Share Sacrificing/Gaining = 4  – 2
7 3
  = 12 – 14
  21
  = -3  (Gain)
  21

 

B’s Share Sacrificing/Gaining = 3  – 1
7 3
  = 9 – 7
  21
  = 2 (Sacrifice)
  21

WN *1 Adjustment of General Reserve: –

Amount to be Debited to A’s Capital = 42,000 X 2
21
  = 4,000    

 

Amount to be Credited to B’s Capital = 42,000 X 2
21
  = 4,000    

WN *2 Adjustment of Profit on revaluation : –

 

Amount to be Credited to A’s Capital = 31,500 X 4
