Working Note: –

*1 Calculation of Interest on Amal’s, Bimal’s, & Kamal’s Capital
Interest on Capital = Opening Capital X Rate of Interest

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

Interest on Amal’s Capital = 2,000/-

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

Interest on Bimal’s Capital = 1,500/-

 Interest on Kamal’s Capital = 25,000 X 5 100

Interest on Kamal’s Capital = 1,250 /

*2 Calculation of Commission to Bimal
Net Profit after interest & Salary = 30,000
Distribution of profit in the ratio of 5:3:2

 Commission to Bimal = 4% on Net Profits after Commission Profit after expenses = Profit – Interest on Capital – Salaries to Partners = 33,360 – 4,750 – 3,000 = Rs 25,610
 Amount of Reserve = Profit after expenses X Rate 100 + Rate
 Amount of Reserve = 25,610 X 4 104

Amount of Reserve = 985/-

*3 Calculation of Amount to be transferred to Reserve

 Amount for Reserve = 10% of Divisible Profit Divisible Profit = Profit + Interest on Drawings − Interest on Capital = 33,360 – 4,750 – 3,000 – 985 = Rs 24,625

 Amount of Reserve = 24,625 X 10 100

Amount of Reserve = 24,62/-

*4: -Calculation of share of profit of Amal’s, Bimal’s, & Kamal’s
Net Profit after interest & Salary = 22,163
Distribution of remaining profit in the ratio of 1:1:1

 Profit share of Amal = 22,163 X 1/3 Profit share of Amal = 7,388/- Profit share of Bimal = 22,163 X 1/3 Profit share of Bimal = 7,388/- Profit share of Kamal = 22,163 X 1/3 Profit share of Kamal = 7,387/-
