On a scrutiny of the accounts, the following matters are revealed:
(i) On 1st December, 2017, a major repair was made in respect of the plant incurring ₹ 30,000 which was charged to revenue. The said sum is agreed to be capitalised for goodwill calculation subject to adjustment of depreciation of 10% p.a. on Reducing Balance Method.
(ii) The closing stock for the year 2016-17 was overvalued by ₹ 12,000.
(iii) To cover management cost, an annual charge of ₹ 24,000 should be made for the purpose of goodwill valuation.
(iv) On 1st April, 2016, a machine having a book value of ₹ 10,000 was sold for ₹ 11,000 but the proceeds were wrongly credited to Profit and Loss Account. No effect has been given to rectify the same. Depreciation is charged on machine @ 10% p.a. on reducing balance method.

Note 1: Depreciation on ₹ 30,000 machinery is charged for only 4 months in the year 2016-17.

Note 2: Sale proceeds wrongly credited in 2015-16 have been deducted after adjusting for profit of ₹ 1,000. No depreciation is charged, since date of sale is not given (assumed that the machinery is sold at the end of the year).
