Date  Particulars  L.F.  Debit Amount (Rs)  Credit Amount (Rs)  






(i)  Suspense A/c  Dr 
 40,000 

 To Raghu’s A/c 


 40,000 
 (purchase recorded wrongly to the debit of Raghu’s A/c, now rectified) 










(ii)  Suspense A/c  Dr 
 40,000 

 To Raghav’s A/c 


 20,000 
 To Raghu’s A/c 


 20,000 
 (purchase from Raghu wrongly debited to Raghav’s A/c) 









Explanation:
(i) Purchases from Raghu wrongly debited to his A/c, however his A/c should have been credited. Therefore, we now credit his A/c with double amount i.e. Rs 40,000 (firstly to cancel the effect of wrongly debiting his A/c with Rs 20,000 and secondly to correctly credit his A/c with Rs 20,000 ). It has been assumed that Purchase A/c was correctly debited and hence here Suspense A/c is debited while rectifying the error.
(ii) In the second case, purchases from Raghu was debited to Raghav's A/c. Now, to rectify this firstly we need to credit Raghav's A/c with Rs 20,000 (to cancel the effect of wrong debit), credit Raghu's A/c with Rs 20,000 (earlier omitted) and Suspense A/c debited with Rs 40,000.
Here, entries are recorded right but posted wrongly to debit of Raghu's A/c (in the first case) and to the debit of Raghav's A/c (in the second case). Therefore, explanation is provided to you.
The correct entry in both the cases will be:
Journal  
Date  Particulars  L.F.  Debit Amount (Rs)  Credit Amount (Rs)  






 Purchases A/c  Dr 
 20,000 

 To Raghu’s A/c 


 20,000 
 (goods purchased from Raghu on credit)
