Prepare trading and profit and loss account and balance sheet in proper form after making the following adjustments

i) Depreciation plant and machinery by 15%

ii) Write off Rs. 5,000 from preliminary expenses

iii) Provide for half year's debenture interest due.

iv) Leave bad and doubtful debts provision at 5% on sundry debtors.

v) Provide for income tax @ 50%

vi) Stock on 31st march, 2010 was Rs. 9,50,000


Ist Step : Write Small sign in list of balances relating to adjustment

In first step of solving this problem, you have to read the question and write small sign in list of balances relating to adjustment. With this, you can treat correctly.

2st Step : Make Working Notes for Adjustments

Working Notes :-

1. ) Depreciation on plant and machinery by 15%

33,00,000 X 15% = 4,95,000

2. Rs. 5,000 written off preliminary expenses will show in the debit side of profit and loss account. And rest Rs. 45,000 will show in the asset side in balance sheet.

3.) Show half year debenture interest due as outstanding interest in the debit side of profit and loss account.

4) Provision for Doubtful Debts Account

Credit Side :

Bad debts provision 1st April, 1988 Rs. 35,000

Transfer to Profit and loss account (Balancing figure) Rs 29,600

Total = Rs. 64,600

Debit Side

Bad Debts Rs. 21,100

New bad debts provision 5%

8,70,000 X 5% = Rs. 43,500

Total Rs. 64,600

Now, balancing figure of Rs. 29600 will go to debit side of profit and loss account and new provision of Rs. 43500 will deduct from sundry debtors in balance sheet.

5) Provide  for Income Tax @ 50%

Calculate net profit before charging income tax in profit and loss account and then calculate its 50% and it will be shown as provision for income tax in the debit side of profit and loss account and also it will be shown in the liability side in balance sheet.

6) Closing stock of Rs. 9,50,000 will go to the credit side of trading account. We will also show it in asset side in balance sheet.

7) Interim dividend paid will go to the debit side of profit and loss appropriation account. 15% dividend distribution tax and surcharge of 3% is paid by companies before distribution. It means it will also be debited in profit and loss appropriation account. In balance sheet, dividend distribution tax and surcharge will be shown in the liability side in balance sheet.

8.) Call in arrears will deduct from equity share capital in liability side of balance sheet.

After this, you have to make trading, profit and loss account, profit and loss appropriation account and balance sheet.
