Journal

 Date Particulars L.F. Debit Amount (₹) Credit Amount (₹) 2019April 1 Z’s Capital A/c Dr. 5,400 To X’s Capital A/c 5,400 (Adjustment for General Reserve, Profit and Loss A/c and Advertisement Suspense account is made on change in profit sharing ratio)

Working Notes:

WN 1

Net amount to be adjusted = General reserve + profit and loss A/c (Credit) - Advertisement suspense A/c

= 6,000 + 24,000 - 12,000

= Rs 18,000

WN 2 Calculation of Sacrificing (or Gaining) Ratio

Old Ratio (X, Y and Z) = 5 : 3 : 2

New Ratio (X, Y and Z) = 2 : 3 : 5

Sacrificing (or Gaining) Ratio = Old Ratio − New Ratio

X's share = 5/10 - 2/10 = 3/10 (sacrifice)

Y's share = 3/10 - 3/10 = "Nil"

Z's share = 2/10 - 5/10 = (-3)/10 (gain)

Amount to be debited to X's capital = 18,000 xx 3/10 = Rs 5,400

Amount to be debited to Z's capital = 18,000 xx 3/10 = Rs 5,400
