The following figures are extracted of incomplete contract from the books of Sahara Construction Limited, Mumbai for the year ended 31st March, 2018 :

 Contract price Rs.10,00,000 Work certified Rs. 7,50,000 Work uncertified Rs. 50,000 Cash received from contractee. 80% of work certified Notional profit Rs. 3,00,000

You are required to find out the amount of Profit and reserve.

#### Solution

Contract Price = Rs. 10,00,000
Work Certified = Rs. 7,50,000

i.e. More than 50%, but less than 90%,

therefore 2/3xx"National Profit"xx"Cash Received"/"Work Certified"

=2/3xxRs. 3,00,000xx((80/100)xxRs. 7,50,000)/(Rs.7,50,000)

=2/3xxRs.3,00,000xx(Rs. 6,00,000)/(Rs.7,50,000)

=2/3xx Rs. 3,00,000 x 0.80

= Rs. 2,00,000 x 0.80

∴ Profit = Rs. 1,60,000
Now,
Reserve = Notional Profit(-) Profit

= Rs. 3,00,000 (-) Rs. 1,60,000

Reserve = Rs. 1,40,000
