In the Dissolution of the Firm firstly we will prepare the realisation account to close down the books of accounts of partnership firms and get to know the gains or losses on the dissolution of the partnership firm.
What is realisation Account: –
The realisation account is prepared at the time of the dissolution of the firm to know the profit or loss on realizing assets and repay the liabilities of the firms. This amount of profit or loss will be transferred to the partners’ capital or current account. In the case of capital fixed in nature, we will transfer the amount of profit/loss to the partners’ current account or in the case of the capital account is fluctuating in nature then transfer to the partners’ capital account.
Steps involved in the preparation of the Realisation account: –
In the accounting Treatment on Dissolution of the Firm when we are preparing a Realisation account. we can be prepared in the six steps shown as following: –
- First of all, we have to transfer all assets (except fictitious assets, loan to partners, and cash or a bank account) with the full amount in the debit side of the realisation account.
- and then we have to transfer all liabilities(including provisions but except Partners’ Loan and capital account) with the full amount in the Credit side of the realisation account.
- The transfer of the amount realized on the sale of assets on the credit side of the realisation account.
- The transfer of the amount paid to settle the amount of all liabilities on the Debit side of the realisation account.
- Any expense incurred on the dissolution of the partnership Firm.
- In last now we have to calculate the balance of the realisation account. So if left credit balance then it means there is the gain on the dissolution of the firm and if left debit balance it means there is a loss on the dissolution of the firm.
