The solution of Question 49 Chapter 2 of +2-A

:

 Profit and Loss Appropriation Account for the year ended 31st March 2019 Expenditure Amount Income Amount To Interest on Capital A/c *1 By Profit and Loss A/c 21,000 P’s Capital A/c 2,000 Q’s Capital A/c 1,500 R’s Capital A/c 1,500 5,000 To R’s Salary A/c 12,000 To Profit Transferred to *2 P’s Current A/c 7,000 Q’s Current A/c 5,000 R’s Current A/c 4,000 16,000 21,000 21,000

 Particulars P Q R Particulars P Q R To Drawing a/c 10,000 10,000 10,000 By Balance B/d 40,000 30,000 30,000 By Interest on Capital A/c *1 2,000 1,500 1,500 By Salaries A/c – 6,000 4,000 By P&L Appropriation A/c*2 7,000 5,000 4,000 To Balance c/d 39,000 32,500 29,500 49,000 42,500 39,500 49,000 42,500 39,500

Working Note: –

*1 Calculation of Interest on P’s, Q’s, & R’s Capital
Interest on Capital = Opening Capital X Rate of Interest

 Interest on P’s Capital = 40,000 X 5 100

Interest on P’s Capital = 2,000/-

 Interest on Q’s Capital = 30,000 X 5 100

Interest on Q’s Capital = 1,500/-

 Interest on R’s Capital = 30,000 X 5 100

Interest on R’s Capital  = 1,500 /-

*2: -Calculation of share of profit of P’s, Q’s, & R’s
Net Profit after interest & Salary = 16,000
Distribution of first Rs 10,000 in the Capital Ratio i.e. 50:30:20

 Profit share of P = 10,000 X 50/100 Profit share of P = 5,000/- Profit share of Q = 10,000 X 30/100 Profit share of Q = 3,000/- Profit share of R = 10,000 X 20/100 Profit share of R = 2,000/-

Distribution of remaining profit in the ratio of 1:1:1
Remaining Profit available for distribution = Rs 16,000 − 10,000 = Rs 6,000

 Profit share of P = 6,000 X 1/3 Profit share of P = 2,000/- Profit share of Q = 6,000 X 1/3 Profit share of Q = 2,000/- Profit share of R = 6,000 X 1/3 Profit share of R = 2,000/-

Total Profit share of P = 5,000 + 2,000 = Rs 7,000
Total Profit share of Q = 3,000 + 2,000 = Rs 5,000
Total Profit share of R = 2,000 + 2,000 = Rs 4,000
