Dividend is allow when year is end. dividend is given upon such share which money is made. calls in advance means which money is made in advance. it is treated as made. and calls in arrears means which money that is not given by public to company. 25000 rs. is a part of 5,00,000rs. it is not different from it. and 40000 is also a part of 5,00,000rs. .dividend is only given on which money is receive from people. so, 500000 - 40000 =460000460000× 15% = 69000.

Simple is the explanation. see,dividend is payable on the received amount related to the current year. for calculating dividend we have to subtract the calls in arrear from the called up capital. so,(5,00,000-40,000)×15/100=69,000

Dividend is not payable on calls in advance and calls in arrears, the called up capital was 5 lacs and we have to less the calls in arrears 40000 for the purpose of calculating the dividend therefore the amount of dividend will be 500000-40000=460000×15%=69000 here we should not subtract the calls in advance because it is not included in the 5 lacs as it was not paid up capital it is called up capital
