ANSWER:
Working Notes:
WN 1 Profit before Z’s Salary and Interest on Loan.
WN 2 Calculation of Interest on Capital
Interest on Z’s Capital for 4 years = 12,000 × 4 = Rs 48,000
WN 3 Calculation of Z’s Share of Profit as a Partner
Profit after Interest on Z’s Capital = Profit before Interest on Z’s Capital − Interest on Z’s Capital
= 23,88,000 − 48,000 = Rs 23,40,000
Z’s Profit Share as a Partner for 4 years
∴ Z’s Share of Interest on Capital and Profit Share as a Partner = 48,000 + 3,90,000 = Rs 4,38,000

It was also agreed that any excess amount which C receives as a partner (over his salary and commission) will be borne by A. Profit for the year ended 31st March, 2019 was ₹ 6,44,000, before payment of salary and commission. Prepare Profit and Loss Appropriation Account.
ANSWER:
Working Notes:
WN 1 Calculation of Remuneration to C as a Manager
Salary to C = Rs 50,000
Commission to C = 10% of Net Profit after Salary and Commission
Net Profit after Salary and Commission = 6,44,000 − 50,000 = Rs 5,94,000
C’s remuneration as Manager = Salary + Commission = 50,000 + 54,000 = Rs 1,04,000
WN 2 Calculation of Profit Share of C as a Partner
Profit = Rs 6,44,000
Part of C’s Profit Share to be borne by A = 1,28,800 − 1,04,000 = Rs 24,800
Profit available for distribution between A and B = 6,44,000 − 1,04,000 = Rs 5,40,000
A’s Profit share after adjusting C’s deficiency = 3,60,000 − 24,800 = Rs 3,35,200

Question 77: A, B and C were in partnership sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 4 : 2 : 1. It was provided that C's share in profit for a year would not be less then ₹ 7,500. Profit for the year ended 31st March, 2019 amounted to ₹ 31,500. You are required to show the appropriation among the partners. The profit and Loss Appropriation Account is not required.
ANSWER:
Working Notes:
Profit for the year = Rs 31,500
Profit sharing ratio = 4 : 2 : 1
C is given a guarantee of minimum profit of Rs 7,500
C’s Actual Profit Share (i.e. Rs 4,500) is less than his Minimum Guaranteed Profit (i.e. Rs 7,500)
∴ 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
Therefore,
Final Profit Share of A = 18,000 − 2,000 = Rs 16,000
Final Profit Share of B = 9,000 − 1,000 = Rs 8,000
Final Profit Share of C = 4,500 + 3,000 = Rs 7,500

ANSWER:
Working Note
C will get higher of the two:
(ii) Minimum guaranteed profit, i.e. Rs 10,000
Thus from net profit of Rs 54,000, minimum guaranteed profit to C of Rs 10,000 is to be adjusted first.

ANSWER:
Working Notes:
WN 1 Distribution of Profit for the year 201718
Profit for 2018 = Rs 40,000
Profit sharing ratio = 2 : 2 : 1
C is given a guarantee of minimum profit of Rs 10,000
Deficiency in C’s Profit Share = 10,000 − 8,000 = Rs 2,000
This deficiency is to be borne by B.
Therefore,
Final Profit Share of A = 16,000
Final Profit Share of B = 16,000 − 2,000 = Rs 14,000

Pass necessary Journal entries in the books of the firm.
ANSWER:
Working Notes:
Profit for the year = Rs 40,000
Profit sharing ratio = 5 : 4 : 1
C is given a guarantee of minimum profit of Rs 5,000
Deficiency in C’s share = 5,000 − 4,000 = Rs 1,000
This deficiency is to be borne by A and B equally.
Therefore,
Final Profit Share of A = 20,000 − 500 = Rs 19,500
Final Profit Share of B = 16,000 − 500 = Rs 15,500

(a) C's share of profit is guaranteed to be ₹ 6,000 Minimum.
(b) Minimum profit payable to C amounting to ₹ 6,000 is guaranteed by A.
(c) Guaranteed minimum profit of ₹ 6,000 payable to C is guaranteed by B.
(d) Any deficiency after making payment of guaranteed ₹ 6,000 will be borne by A and B in the ratio of 3 : 1.
ANSWER:
Case (a)
Working Notes:
Profit = Rs 30,000
Profit sharing ratio = 3 : 2 : 1
C is given a guarantee of minimum profit of Rs 6,000
Deficiency in C’s Profit Share = 6,000 − 5,000 = Rs 1,000
This deficiency is to be borne by A and B in their profit sharing ratio i.e. 3 : 2
Therefore,
Final Profit Share of A = 15,000 − 600 = Rs 14,400
Final Profit Share of B = 10,000 − 400 = Rs 9,600
Final Profit Share of C = 5,000 + 1,000 = Rs 6,000
Case (b)
Working Notes:
Deficiency in C’s Profit Share = 6,000 − 5,000 = Rs 1,000
This deficiency is to be borne by A only.
Therefore,
Final Profit Share of A = 15,000 − 1,000 = Rs 14,000
Final Profit Share of B = 10,000
Final Profit Share of C = 5,000 + 1,000 = Rs 6,000
Case (c)
Working Notes:
Deficiency in C’s Profit Share = 6,000 − 5,000 = Rs 1,000
This deficiency is to be borne by B only.
Therefore,
Final Profit Share of A = 15,000
Final Profit Share of B = 10,000 − 1,000 = Rs 9,000
Final Profit Share of C = 5,000 + 1,000 = Rs 6,000
Case (d)
Working Notes:
Deficiency in C’s Profit Share = 6,000 − 5,000 = Rs 1,000
This deficiency is to be borne by A and B in the ratio of 3 : 1.
Therefore,
Final Profit Share of A = 15,000 − 750 = Rs 14,250
Final Profit Share of B = 10,000 − 250 = Rs 9,750
Final Profit Share of C = 5,000 + 1,000 = Rs 6,000

In terms of the Partnership Deed, any excess amount, which C will be entitled to receive as a partner over the amount which would have been due to him if he continued to be the manager, would have to be personally borne by A out of his share of profit. Profit for the year ended 31st March, 2019 amounted to ₹ 2,25,000. You are required to show Profit and Loss Appropriation Account for the year ended 31at March, 2019.
ANSWER:
Working Notes:
WN 1 Calculation of Remuneration to C as a Manager
Salary to C = Rs 27,000
Commission to C = 10% of Net Profit after Salary and Commission
Net Profit after Salary and Commission = 2,25,000 − 27,000 = Rs 1,98,000
C’s remuneration as Manager = Salary + Commission = 27,000 + 18,000 = Rs 45,000
WN 2 Calculation of Profit Share of C as a Partner
Profit = Rs 2,25,000
Part of C’s Profit Share to be borne by A = 56,250 − 45,000 = Rs 11,250
Profit available for distribution between A and B = 2,25,000 − 45,000 = Rs 1,80,000

Sholu's share of profit ( excluding interest on capital but including salary) is guaranteed at a minimum of ₹ 1,10,000 p.a. Any deficiency arising on that account shall be met by Asgar. The profit for the year ended 31st March, 2018 amounted to ₹ 4,24,000.
Prepare Profit and Loss Appropriation Account for the year ended 31st March, 2018.
ANSWER:
Working Notes:
Profit available for distribution = 4,24,000 – (1,20,000 + 84,000+ 40,000) = Rs 1,80,000
Profit sharing ratio = 4 : 2 : 3
Dholu’s Minimum Guaranteed Profit = Rs 1,10,000 (excluding interest on capital, but including salary)
Dholu’s Minimum Guaranteed Profit (excluding salary) = 1,10,000 – 40,000 = Rs 70,000
But, Dholu’s Actual Profit Share = Rs 60,000
Deficiency in Dholu’s Profit Share = 70,000 – 60,000 = 10,000
This deficiency is to be borne by Asgar alone.
Therefore,

Partners are entitled to interest on capital @ 6% per annum and salary to Bhavna @ ₹ 50,000 p.a. and a commission of ₹ 3,000 per month to Disha as per the provisions of the partnership Deed. Bhavna's share of profit (excluding interest on capital) is guaranteed at not less than ₹ 1,70,000 p.a. Disha's share of profit (including interest on capital but excluding commission) is guaranteed at not less than ₹ 1,50,000 p.a. Any deficiency arising on that account shall be met by Ankur. The profit of the firm for the year ended 31st March, 2018 amounted to ₹ 9,50,000.
Prepare Profit and Loss Appropriation Account for the year ended 31st March, 2018.
ANSWER:
Working Notes:
Profit available for distribution = 9,50,000 – (1,44,000 + 50,000 + 36,000) = Rs 7,20,000
Profit sharing ratio = 7 : 3 : 2
Bhavna’s Minimum Guaranteed Profit = Rs 1,70,000 (excluding interest on capital)
But, Bhavna’s Actual Profit Share = Rs 1,80,000
This implies that there is no deficiency in Bhavna’s profit share as her actual profit share
(i.e. Rs 1,80,000) exceeds his minimum guaranteed profit share (i.e. Rs 1,70,000).
Disha’s Minimum Guaranteed Profit = Rs 1,50,000 (including interest on capital but excluding salary)
Disha’s Minimum Guaranteed Profit (excluding interest) = 1,50,000 – 24,000 = Rs 1,26,000
But, Disha’s Actual Profit Share = 1,20,000
Deficiency in Disha’s Profit Share = 1,26,000 – 1,20,000 = 6,000
This deficiency is to be borne by Ankur alone.
Therefore,
Ankur’s New Profit Share = 4,20,000 – 6,000 = Rs 4,14,000

Question 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:
(a) C's share of profit guaranteed to be not less than ₹ 15,000 p.a.
(b) 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 preceeding 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.
ANSWER:
Working Notes:
Deficiency in revenue guaranteed by B = 25,000 − 16,000 = Rs 9,000
∴Profit to be distributed among Partners = 75,000 + B’s deficiency in guaranteed interest
= 75,000 + 9,000 = Rs 84,000
Profit sharing ratio = 3 : 2 : 1
Therefore, Final Profit Share of A = 42,000 − 600 = Rs 41,400
Final Profit Share of B = 28,000 − 400 = Rs 27,600**
Final Profit Share of C =14,000 + 1,000 = Rs 15,000
** In the book, the final profit to B is given as Rs 18,600, however, as per the solution it should be 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 form of profit.
