# Calculate Interest on Menon’S Drawings for the Year 2006 - Accountancy

Sum

Menon and Thomas are partners in a firm. They share profits equally. Their monthly drawings are Rs 2,000 each. Interest on drawings is to be charged @ 10% p.a. Calculate interest on Menon’s drawings for the year 2006, assuming that money is withdrawn: (i) in the beginning of every month, (ii) in the middle of every month, and (iii) at the end of every month.

#### Solution

Case (i)
If they withdraw money in the beginning of each month

Interest of drawings = Total drawings × Rate × 13/[2 xx 12]

Menon’s = 24,000 × 10/100 xx 13/[2 xx 12] = Rs 1,300

Thomas’s = 24,000 × 10/100 xx 13/[2 xx 12] = Rs 1,300

Case (ii)
If they withdraw in the middle of every month

Interest on Drawings = Total drawings × 10/100 xx 6/12

Menon’s = 24,000 × 10/100 xx 6/12 = Rs 1,200

Thomas’s = 24,000 × 10/100 xx 6/12 = Rs 1,200

Case (iii)

If they withdraw at the end of every month.

Interest on drawings = Total drawings × "Rate"/100 x 11/[2 xx 12]

Menon’s = 24,000 × 10/100 x 11/[2 xx 12] = Rs 1,100

Thomas’s = 24,000 × 10/100 x 11/[2 xx 12] = Rs 1,100
