The solution of Question 37 Chapter 2 of +2-A

:

Calculation of Interest on Neelkant’s & Mahadev’s Capital by Simple Method
Interest on Capital = Opening Capital X Rate of Interest

 Interest on Neelkant’s Capital = 10,00,000 X 5 100

Interest on Neelkant’s Capital = 50,000/-

 Interest on Mahadev’s Capital = 10,00,000 X 5 100

Interest on Mahadev’s Capital = 50,000/-

Note: –

In this question, The Balance of the current account of both partner’s is given, So that’s why the capital account has fixed in nature.
When the capital account is fixed then all the transactions related to interest, profit or drawing are treated in the current account.
So Opening capital and closing capital will remain same except in the case where capital withdrawal by the partners that’s why we simply calculate interest on capital the balance given in the balance sheet.
