 Statement Showing Adjustment of Profit required Particulars Mudit Sudhir Uday Total Actual Amount of Interest on Capital @2.5% p.a. *2 10,000 4,000 3,000 17,000 Add: – Salary 18,000 – – 18,000 Add: – Commission *3 3,000 – 12,000 15,000 Actual Amount to be credited 31,000 4,000 15,000 50,000 Less: wrongly Amount credited in Profit sharing ratio i.e. 3:2:1 30,000 10,000 10,000 50,000 1,000 – 6,000 5,0000 – Mudit get less amount, so we have to credit his capital a/c with difference amount Sudhir get extra so we have to debit his capital a/c with difference amount Uday gets less amount, so we have to credit his capital a/c with difference amount

*2 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 Mudit’s Capital = 4,00,000 X 2.5 100

Interest on Mudit’s Capital = 10,000/-

 Interest on Sudhir’s Capital = 1,60,000 X 2.5 100

Interest on Sudhir’s Capital = 4,000/-

 Interest on Uday’sCapital = 1,20,000 X 2.5 100

Interest on Uday’sCapital = 3,000/-

*3 Calculation of Commission to C

 Commission to Mudit = 5% on Net Profits after Interest on Capital & Salary Net Profit after Interest on Capital & Salary = 1,00,000 – 17, 000 + 18, 000 + 12, 000 = 53,000
 Commission to Mudit = Net Profit X Rate 100 + Rate

 Commission to Mudit = 53,000 X 6 100+6

Commission to Mudit = 3,000/-
