Solution : 

Dear Priya Manuel, I want to teach some of important facts before showing the process of branch account. Branch account will become just like profit and loss account. It will show the net profit or net loss of branch. So,  all the goods which are sent and closing in the branch will show the excess of income and expenses. But when we send goods at cost plus some profit margin to branch, its main aim is to hide the correct cost from the eyes of branch. If branch employees will know this important fact, they will start to open their own business. So, this strategy of business. But if you are responsible to prepare branch account, you know this fact. You must deduct margin from opening stock and closing stock. So, we will deduct 33.33% cost from its opening stock and closing stock which sent goods to our branch. 

Remember Points : 

1. Gross profit margin 33.33% will deduct by recording reverse entry in account.

a) Opening stock - Because company will not earn the profit from own stock. 
b) Closing Stock - Because company will not earn the profit from own stock. 
c) Goods send to branch - Because company will not earn the profit from own stock. 

2. Every cash or bank which branch will receive will be credit. Main are two sources 

one is cash sale and second is from debtor. All cash or bank payment will be debit. If it will be capital nature, it will show its closing balance in the credit side. In your cash payment of furniture buying is capital nature. So, first it will go debit side and then it will go credit side. 

3. Credit sale will not show in branch account , because it will show automatically in the credit side. 

see 

New Credit Sale = debit side (open debtors) - cash receive from debtors - closing balance of debtors.
