Question 55 Chapter 2 of +2-A

55. Anshul and Asha are partners sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 3 : 2. Anshul being a non-working partner contributed 8,00,000 as her capital. Asha being a working partner did not contribute capital. The partnership Deed provides for interest on capital @ 5% and salary to every working partner @ 2,000 per month. Net profit before providing for interest on capital and partner′s salary for the year ended 31st March 2019 was 32,000.

The solution of Question 55 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 32,000 Anshul’s Capital A/c 20,000 To Anshul’s Salary A/c *1 12,000 32,000 32,000

Working Note: –

*1 Calculation of Interest on Anshul’s, Asha’s, & Cherry’s Capital
Interest on Capital = Opening Capital X Rate of Interest

 Interest on Anshul’s Capital = 8,00,000 X 5 100

Interest on Anshul’s Capital = 40,000/-
Calculation Total amount of salary
Salary to Asha = 2,000 X 12 = 24,000/-

Note: – But the total profit of the firm is equal to Rs 32,000 only and total of Interest on capital and salary is equal 64,000 (40000+24,000)

So, we have to distribute the profit of the firm among the partner in the ratio of interest of capital and Salary.

 Interest on Anshul’s Capital : Asha’s Salary 40,000 : 24,000 Ratio 5 : 3
 Interest on Anshul’s Capital = 32,000 X 5 8

Interest on Anshul’s Capital = 20,000/-

 Salary to Asha = 32,000 X 3 8

Salary to Asha = 12,000/-
