    I dont understand how you can do this without a disposals account - does it say you can not have one? What are you working from?

    I would

    DR Bank 550
    CR Equipment 645
    DR Acc Dep 163.50

    Then you have a figure of 68.50 to credit the P&L but it should really include

    DR Disposals 645
    CR Disposals 550
    CR Disposals 163.50
    then a balance on this of the 68.50

    I am probably completely wrong though!

    Hi Louise

    You have to

    Cr - 645
    Cr - 68.50 Profit on disposal
    Dr- 163.50 acc depreciation
    Dr - 550 suspense acc

    What you have is: 645 - 163.5 = 481.50 NBV and sold for 550 - 481.5= 68.50 profit on disposal

    Hope that's help. If you need more help I am happy to help.
