 Statement Showing Adjustment of Profit required Particulars A B C Total Actual Amount of Interest on Capital @12% p.a. *1 1,500 1,000 500 3,000 Add: – Salary (500 X 12months) – 6,000 – 6,000 Add: – Commission *2 – – 1,350 1,350 Actual Amount to be credited 1,500 7,000 1,850 10,350 Less: wrongly Amount credited in Profit sharing ratio i.e. 3:2:1 5,175 3,450 1,725 10,350 – 3,675 3,550 125 – A get less amount, so we have to credit his capital a/c with difference amount B get extra so we have to debit his capital a/c with difference amount C get extra so we have to debit his capital a/c with difference amount

*1 Calculation of Actual Amount of Interest on A’s, B’s, & C’s Capital
Interest on Capital = Opening Capital X Rate of Interest

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

Interest on A’s Capital = 1,500/-

 Interest on B’s Capital = 20,000 X 5 100

Interest on B’s Capital = 1,000/-

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

Interest on C’s Capital = 500/-

*2 Calculation of Commission to C

 Commission to C = 5% on Net Profits after Interest on Capital Net Profit after Interest on Capital = 30,000 – 3,000 = 27,000
 Commission to C = Net Profit X Rate 100

 Interest on C’s Capital = 27,000 X 5 100

Commission to C = 1,350/-
