Question 2:
Following differences have arisen among P, Q and R. State who is correct in each case:
(a) P used ₹ 20,000 belonging to the firm and made a profit of ₹ 5,000. Q and R want the amount to be given to the firm?
(b) Q used ₹ 5,000 belonging to the firm and suffered a loss of ₹ 1000. He wants the firm to bear the loss?
(c) P and Q want to purchase goods from A Ltd., R does not agree?
(d) Q and R want to admit C as partner, P does not agree?
Answer:
(a) P is bound to pay Rs 20,000 together with profit of Rs 5,000 to the firm because this amount belongs to the firm.
Explanation: As per Principal and Agent relationship, P is principal as well as agent to the firm and to Q and R. As per this rule, any profit earned by an agent (P) by using the firm’s property is attributable to the firm.
(b) Q is liable to pay Rs 5,000 to the firm. As per the Partnership Act, 1932, every partner of a partnership firm is liable to the firm for any loss caused by his/her willful negligence.
Explanation: Here Q is solely responsible for the loss of Rs 1,000 because he used the property of the firm and also represented himself as a principal rather than an agent to the other partners and to the firm.
(c) P and Q may buy goods from A Ltd.
Explanation: As per Partnership Act, 1932, a partner has a right to buy and sell goods without consulting the other partners unless a Public Notice has been given by the partnership firm to restrict the partners to buy and sell.
(d) C will not be admitted because one of the partners P has not agreed to admit C.
Explanation: As per Partnership Act, a new partner cannot be admitted into a firm unless all the existing partners agree on the same decision. In other words, a new partner can be admitted in a partnership firm with the consent of all the existing partners.

Question 4:
Jaspal and Rosy were partners with capital contribution of ₹ 10,00,000 and ₹ 5,00,000 respectively. They do not have a Partnership Deed. Jaspal wants that profits of the firm should be shared in their capital ratio. Rosy convinced jaspal that profits should be shared equally. Explain how Rosy would have convinced Jaspal for sharing the profit equally.
Answer:
In the absence of partnership deed, the provisions of Indian Partnership Act of 1932 applies. According to the act, if there is no agreement regarding the ratio in which profits are to be shared, then profits (or losses) are to be shared equally among all the partners. Therefore, in this situation Jaspal’s view of distribution of profits in capital ratio is not acceptable and Rosy must have convinced her stating the provisions contained in the Partnership Act, 1932.

Interest on Capital
Neelkant’s  $10,00,000\times \frac{5}{100}=50,000$ 
Mahadev’s  $10,00,000\times \frac{5}{100}=50,000$ 
Note: In this question, as the balances of both Partner's Capital Account and of Partner's Current Account are mentioned, so it has been assumed that the capital of the partners is fixed.
As we know, when the capital of the partners is fixed, drawings and interest on capital does not affect the capital balances of the partners. Rather, it would affect their current account balances. Therefore, in this case, capital at the beginning (i.e. opening capital) and capital at the end (i.e. closing capital) of the year would remain same. Thus, the interest on capital is calculated on fixed capital balances (given in the Balance Sheet of the question).

Question 39:
X and Y contribute ₹ 20,000 and ₹ 10,000 respectively towards capital. They decide to allow interest on capital @ 6% p.a. Their respective share of profits is 2 : 3 and the net profit for the year is ₹ 1,500. Show distribution of profits:
(i) where there is no agreement except for interest on capitals; and
(ii) where there is an agreement that the interest on capital as a charge.
Answer:
Calculation of Interest on Capital
Case (a)
Where there is no clean agreement except for interest on capitals
Profit for the year ended = Rs 1,500
Total amount of interest = Rs 1,800
Here, total amount of interest on capital is more than the profit available for distribution. Therefore, profit of Rs 1,500 is distributed between X and Y in the ratio of their interest on capital.

Case (b)
In case, there is a clear agreement that the interest on capital will be allowed even if the firm has incurred loss, then the whole amount of interest on capital is to be allowed to the partners.
Total Profit of the firm = Rs 1,500
Total amount of Interest on Capital = Rs 1,800 (i.e. Rs 1,200 + Rs 600). Therefore, loss to the firm amounts to Rs 300. This loss is to shared by X and Y in their profit sharing ratio that is 2 : 3.

X and Y are partners in a firm sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 3 : 2 . On 31st March, 2018 after closing the books of account, their Capital Accounts stood at ₹ 4,80,000 and ₹ 6,00,000 respectively. On 1st May, 2017, X introduced an additional capital of ₹ 1,20,000 and Y withdrew ₹ 60,000 form his capital.On 1st October, 2017, X withdrew ₹ 2,40,000 from his capital and Y introduced ₹ 3,00,000 . Interest on capital is allowed at 6% p.a. Subsequently, it was discovered that interest on capital @ 6% p.a. had been omitted. The profits for the year ended 31st March, 2018 amounted to ₹ 2,40,000 and the partners' drawings had been: X–₹1,20,000 and Y–₹ 60,000. Compute the interest on capital if the capitals are (a) fixed, and (b) fluctuating.
