Hi Rahul

The solution to your query is provided below:

 Profit and Loss Appropriation Account Dr. Cr. Particulars Amount Rs Particulars Amount Rs Interest on Capital: Profit and Loss A/c 1,20,000 A 7,500 B 5,000 C 2,500 15,000 Profit transferred to: A’s Capital A/c 40,000 B’s Capital A/c 35,000 C’s Capital A/c 30,000 1,05,000 1,20,000 1,20,000

*Interest on Capital will be calculated for 6 months i.e. from Oct 01, 2004 to March 31, 2005.

C was guaranteed a minimum share of Rs 30,000 by A.
C’s share of profit = 17,500
Deficiency = 30,000 – 17,500 = Rs 12,500
A will bear this deficiency.
A’s new share = 52,500 – 12,500 = Rs 40,000
C’s new share = 17,500 + 12,500 = Rs 30,000
