Journal Entries of Joint Venture

A joint venture is usually a temporary partnership organised by two or more parties for the purpose of carrying out a specific business plan. Profits to be shared by the parties in the predetermined ratio. It is generally not necessary of short duration. Persons are known as co-venturers and they do not use any firm or
social name. Their liability is limited to the adventure concerned. Joint venture may consist of joint consignment of goods, speculation in shares, underwriting of shares or debentures etc. As joint venture is limited partnership, therefore, in the absence of any agreement to the contrary the profits will be shared by the co-venturers in equal proportion.

For passing journal entries, we will use the records in the books of all venturers. Under this method each venturer opens a joint venture account and the personal account of other venturers. Suppose A and b enter into a joint venture then in A's Book joint venture account and the personal account of B will be opened. Similarly, in the books of B joint venture account and the personal account of A will be opened.
