A Ltd. issued 100,000 shares  of Rs. 10 each payable as follows :

Applications were received for 160000 shares out of which letters of regret were issued for 30,000 shares. Full allotment was made to applicants for 40000 shares. Pro-rata allotment was made on the balance.

A shareholder holding 100 shares to whom full allotment was made, failed to pay allotment money. Another shareholder holding 200 shares to whom pro rata allotment was made also failed to pay allotment money. On first call, there was a further default on 300 shares. All these were forfeited. The first lot of 300 was reissued at the rate of Rs. 8 per share as fully paid up shares.

Working Notes 

First of all you need to make the pro-rata table

1. Advance received of allotment money at the time of application.

If there are alloted Rs. 180,000 shares , application received = Rs. 270,000
If there is alloted 1 share, then application received = 270,000/180,000
If there is alloted 200 share (failed allotment money), then application received for ths = 9/6 X 200 = 3/2 X 200 = Rs. 300

2. Calculation of amount received on allotment

Amount Due on allotment = Rs. 2,00,000
Less : Received on application =  90,000
Balance __________________1,10,000
Less allotment money
on 100 shares full allotment is
made ( Failure to pay allotment
money)  ( 100 X 2 ) _________  200
Less Allotment money on _____      100
200 shares alloted on pro-rata
{200 X 2 - RS. 300 (Already received at the time application) }             
Amount received at the time of allotment = 1,09,700

3. Calculation of Not received allotment Money

1. Failure on Full allotment = Rs. 200
( Failure to pay allotment money)  ( 100 X 2 )

2. Failure of pro-rata payment = Rs. 100
{200 X 2 - RS. 300 (Already received at the time application) }        
Total not received allotment money = Rs. 300

4. Calculation of amount transferred to capital reserve

Amount received on 100 shares full payment of application money =  Rs. 300
Amount received on 200 shares which is pro-rata
(It means, we have received 300 shares application money

200 X 90,000/60,000)       Now 300 X 3 Application money =  Rs. 900
Total __________________________________________ Rs. 1200
Less discount allowed on reissue of shares )_____________ Rs. 600
Transferred to Capital Reserve ______________________ Rs. 600
