The solution of Question 77

Chapter 2 of +2-A

:

 Balance Sheet (for the year ended 31st March 2019) Liabilities Amount Assets Amount By Profit and Loss A/c 31,500 To Profit Transferred to *2 A’s Capital A/c 16,000 B’s Capital A/c 8,000 C’s Capital A/c 7,500 31,500 31,500 31,500

Working Note: –

*1 Calculation of Remuneration to C as a Manager

 Profit for the year = 31,500/- Profit-sharing ratio = 4: 2: 1

C is given a guarantee of a minimum profit of Rs 7,500

 A’s Share of Profit = 31,500 X 4 7

A’s Share of Profit= 18,000

 B’s Share of Profit = 31,500 X 2 7

B’s Share of Profit= 9,000

 C’s Share of Profit = 31,500 X 1 7

C’s Share of Profit = 4,500

 C’s Profit Share = 6,44,000 X 1 5 = 1,28,800/-

C’s Actual Profit Share i.e. Rs 4,500 is less than his Minimum Guaranteed Profit i. e. Rs7, 500

Deficiency in C’s Profit Share = 7,500 − 4,500 = Rs 3,000
This deficiency is to be borne by A and B in their profit sharing ratio i.e. 4 : 2

 A’s Share of Profit = 3,000 X 4 7

A’s Share of Profit = 2,000

 B’s Share of Profit = 3,000 X 2 7

B’s Share of Profit = 1,000

Now, Final distributed among the partners

 A’s Share of Profit = 18,000-2,000 = 18,000

 B’s Share of Profit = 9,000- 1,000 = 8,000

 C’s Share of Profit = 4,500 – 3,000 = 7,500
