Question 92 Chapter 2 of +2-A


92. Three Chartered Accountants A, B and C form a partnership, profits being shared in the ratio of
3 : 2: 1 subject to the following:

  1. C’s share of profit guaranteed to be not less than 15,000 p.a.
  2. B gives a guarantee to the effect that gross fee earned by him for the firm shall be equal to his average gross fee of the preceding five years when he was carrying on profession alone, which on an average works out at 25,000.
    The profit for the first year of the partnership are 75,000. The gross fee earned by B for the firm is 16,000. You are required to show Profit and Loss Appropriation Account after giving
    effect to the above

The solution of Question 92 Chapter 2 of +2-A:

Balance Sheet (for the year ended 31st March 2019)
   By Profit and Loss A/c75,000
   By B’s Capital A/c (Deficiency in Revenue)9,000
To Profit Transferred to *2    
A’s Capital A/c41,400   
B’s Capital A/c27,600   
C’s Capital A/c15,000 84,000  
  84,000  84,000

Profit Already credited

Profit of the year =84,000
Profit-sharing Ratio =3 : 2: 1

A’s Share of Profit84,000X3

A’s Share of Profit= 42,000


B’s Share of Profit84,000X2

B’s Share of Profit = 28,000

C’s Share of Profit84,000X1

C’s Share of Profit = 14,000

C’s Minimum Guaranteed Profit = Rs 15,000
C’s Actual Profit Share i.e. 14,000 is less than his Minimum Guaranteed Profit i.e. 15,000
Deficiency in Alia’s Profit Share = 15,000 − 14,000= Rs 1,000

This deficiency of Rs 20,000 is to be borne by A and B in the ratio of 3: 2

A’s Share of Profit1,000X3

A’s Share of Profit  = 600

B’s Share of Profit1,000X2

B’s Share of Profit  = 400

Now, Final distributed among the partners



A’s Share of Profit=42,000600=41,400
B’s Share of Profit=28,000400=27,600
C’s Share of Profit=14,000+1,000=15,000

Note: – In the book, they have shown the net share of final profit to B is Rs 18,600 (27,600- 9,000), So, we have shown it in the solution of Rs 27,600. The deficiency of Rs 9,000 that was guaranteed by B to the firm would not be deducted from his share as he is bearing it in the form of profit.
