HELPPPPPPPPPPP

I have just done 2 BA7 mock exams and failed, some of which were silly mistakes but I really dont understand the "partnership Appropriation Accounts.

The question is:-

P, C & L are partners having invested £8000, £9000, £2000

They share profits equally

During the year partners have drawn the following:- P £7600, C £10400, L £500

at the end of the year before interest adj the business made £21643 profit

The business pays 5% int on capital into current accounts and deducts 5% interest on partners total drawings

Assuming there was no balance on the partners current accounts at the start of the year calculate the revised balances on the partners current accounts after profit shoaring and itnerest adju at the end of the year.

Will P C & L be DR OR CR and what will the figures be

i just cant get anwhere near what ICB answers are, any help gratefully received

Hi Mandy

Calculate each partner's drawings interest and capital interest and post to individual current a,/cs.

Take profit (before adjustment), add total drawings interest back in to profit and deduct total capital interest. Remainder of profit is shared amongst partners according to p&l sharing ratio.

For partners current a/cs, as no b/d balance so just debit drawings and drawings interest and credit capital interest and profit share then balance.

Hope this helps

Yep that's what I get too! 

Someone recently had similar issue on here with a vat question for BA4.

Looks very much like the error is in the online system.

Ok I assumed when you said these were figures that you have you were talking about the answers you gave.

So ICB answers are correct!  Sorry ICB! 

 I can't see how your answers are out as no rounding.

Profit 21,643 + 925 DI - 950 CI = 21,618 ÷ 3 

7206 profit share

Any better!

Hi Mandy

I know that feeling :/

Thinking about it there was 25 quid difference between cap interest and drawings interest and split 3 ways is roughly 8 quid so maybe you just added when should have deducted.

Anyhoo main thing is you sussed it.

Best of luck with centre exam

First of all calculate the drawing interest at the end of the year:
P: 7600*5%=380
C: 10,400*5%=520
L: 500*5%=25
Total: £925
Then calculate the interest on capital each one should get:
P: 8000*5%=400
C: 9000*5%=450
L: 2000*5%=100
Total: £950
Out of the profit £21,643 you should pay interest on capital £950 and charge back £925 interest on drawings.
£21,643-950+925=£21,618
Profit is split equally: 21,618/3=£7,206
Then for each one of the partners:
Dr Drawings
Dr Drawings Interest
Cr Interest on capital
Cr Profit share
