16. On March 31, 2017 after the close of accounts, the capitals of Mountain, Hill and Rock stood in the books of the firm at ₹ 4,00,000, ₹ 3,00,000 and ₹ 2,00,000, respectively. Subsequently, it was discovered that the interest on capital @ 10% p.a. had been omitted. The profit for the year amounted to ₹ 1,50,000 and the partner’s drawings had been Mountain: ₹ 20,000, Hill ₹ 15,000 and Rock ₹ 10,000. Calculate interest on capital.

We need to find the opening capital to calculate the interest on capital. In the problem the closing capitals are given. Note that, if we subtract the drawings from the opening capital and add profits to the opening capital, we get the closing capital. So, to get the opening capital from the closing capital (which is given in the problem), we need to perform the reverse calculation i.e. Take the closing capital, add Drawings and subtract profit

Also note that the ratio in which the profits are shared is not given. So, we assume that the profits are shared equally among the partmers

So, the capital would remain the same at the beginning and at the end of the accounting period. So, while calculating the interest on the capital, we can consider the capital provided in the balance sheet. Also note that the rest of the information in the problem is redundant (not used to arrive at the solution)

19. The capital accounts of Moli and Golu showed balances of ₹ 40,000 and ₹ 20,000 as on April 01, 2016. They shared profits in the ratio of 3:2. They allowed interest on capital @ 10% p.a. and interest on drawings, @ 12 p.a. Golu advanced a loan of ₹ 10,000 to the firm on August 01, 2016.

During the year, Moli withdrew Rs. 1,000 per month at the beginning of every month whereas Golu withdrew ₹ 1,000 per month at the end of every month. Profit for the year, before the above mentioned adjustments was ₹ 20,950. Calculate interest on drawings show distribution of profits and prepare partner’s capital accounts.

As we know, when the fixed amounts of drawings are made at the beginning of every month, the average period is considered as 6½ months. So, for Moli, the average period for which interest is to be calculated is 6½ months.

As we know, when the fixed amounts of drawings are made at the beginning of every month, the average period is considered as 5½ months. So, for Goli, the average period for which interest is to be calculated is 5½ months.

Also, the interest on loan is not given in the problem. So, it is assumed to be @ 6% p.a.

Also, Interest on Loan need to be charged on the profits. In otherwords, it should be deducted from the net profit before considering it in the Profit and Loss Appropriation Account.

24. Amit and Bhola are partners in a firm. They share profits in the ratio of 3:2. As per their partnership agreement, interest on drawings is to be charged @ 10% p.a. Their drawings during 2017 were ₹ 24,000 and ₹ 16,000, respectively. Calculate interest on drawings based on the assumption that the amounts were withdrawn evenly, throughout the year.

As the amounts are drawn evenly, the average duration should be taken as 6 months.

Interest on Drawings

{= Drawings × \dfrac{Rate}{100} × \dfrac{Duration}{100}}

Interest on Amit’s Drawings

{= 24,000 × \dfrac{10}{100} × \dfrac{6}{12}}

= 1,200

Interest on Bhola’s Drawings

{= 16,000 × \dfrac{10}{100} × \dfrac{6}{12}}

26. Menon and Thomas are partners in a firm. They share profits equally. Their monthly drawings are ₹ 2,000 each. Interest on drawings is to be charged @ 10% p.a. Calculate interest on Menon’s drawings for the year 2006, assuming that money is withdrawn: (i) in the beginning of every month, (ii) in the middle of every month, and (iii) at the end of every month.

Total Drawings in each case

= 2,000 × 12

= 2,400

(i) When the withdrawals are made in the beginning of the month

When the drawings are made in the beginning of the month, the average duration of withdrawal is 6½ months

Interest on Drawings

{= Total~Drawings × \dfrac{Rate}{100} × \dfrac{6½}{12}}

{= Total~Drawings × \dfrac{Rate}{100} × \dfrac{13}{2} × \dfrac{1}{12}}

Interest on Menon’s Drawings

{= 24,000 × \dfrac{10}{100} × \dfrac{13}{2} × \dfrac{1}{12}}

= 1,300

Interest on Thomas’s Drawings

{= 24,000 × \dfrac{10}{100} × \dfrac{13}{2} × \dfrac{1}{12}}

= 1,300

(ii) When the withdrawals are made in the middle of the month

When the drawings are made in the middle of the month, the average duration of withdrawal is 6 months

Interest on Drawings

{= Total~Drawings × \dfrac{Rate}{100} × \dfrac{6}{12}}

Interest on Menon’s Drawings

{= 24,000 × \dfrac{10}{100} × \dfrac{6}{12}}

= 1,200

Interest on Thomas’s Drawings

{= 24,000 × \dfrac{10}{100} × \dfrac{6}{12}}

= 1,200

(ii) When the withdrawals are made in the beginning of the month

When the drawings are made in the end of the month, the average duration of withdrawal is 5½ months

Interest on Drawings

{= Total~Drawings × \dfrac{Rate}{100} × \dfrac{5½}{12}}

{= Total~Drawings × \dfrac{Rate}{100} × \dfrac{11}{2} × \dfrac{1}{12}}

Interest on Menon’s Drawings

{= 24,000 × \dfrac{10}{100} × \dfrac{11}{2} × \dfrac{1}{12}}

= 1,100

Interest on Thomas’s Drawings

{= 24,000 × \dfrac{10}{100} × \dfrac{11}{2} × \dfrac{1}{12}}

= 1,100

Note: As the calculation is the same for both the partners, you can perform the calculation of Interest on Capital once and declare that as the interest on capital for both the partners.

27. On March 31, 2017, after the close of books of accounts, the capital accounts of Ram, Shyam and Mohan showed balance of ₹ 24,000, ₹ 18,000 and ₹ 12,000, respectively. It was later discovered that interest on capital @ 5% had been omitted. The profit for the year ended March 31, 2017, amounted to ₹ 36,000 and the partner’s drawings had been Ram, ₹ 3,600; Shyam, ₹ 4,500 and Mohan, ₹ 2,700. The profit sharing ratio of Ram, Shyam and Mohan was 3:2:1. Calculate interest on capital.

We need to find the opening capital to calculate the interest on capital. In the problem the closing capitals are given. Note that, if we subtract the drawings from the opening capital and add profits to the opening capital, we get the closing capital. So, to get the opening capital from the closing capital (which is given in the problem), we need to perform the reverse calculation i.e. Take the closing capital, add Drawings and subtract profit

Profit

36,000

Profit Share of Ram

{= 36,000 × \dfrac{3}{6}}

= 18,000

Profit Share of Shyam

{= 36,000 × \dfrac{2}{6}}

= 12,000

Profit Share of Mohan

{= 36,000 × \dfrac{1}{6}}

= 6,000
