AAT chief did not explain how to get that figure

any2002uk Registered Posts: 88 ? ? ?

please see june 2006 for FRA. Year ended of March 2006.

Task 1.1

The answer said prepayment is £4800. which i put £1200 because i thought they paid £1200 for April, May, June ("The figure £4900 for rent in bank statement included £1200 for the quarter ended 30 june 2006". so it is prepayment but i fail to find the explaining from chief examiner how and why he put £4800???????????

hope you could help me.

    it says pre payment is 1200

    Task 1.1
    The prepayment in the list of balances is for rent. The figure for rent in the bank summary on
    page 4 includes £1,200 for the quarter ended 30 June 2006.

    its asking for rent account for march 06

    so 6000 rent for year - 1200 pre payment = 4800 total rent paid for the year

    I've just checked this too and the pre-payment figure is definitely £1200.

    The question asks you to 'show clearly the rent for the year ended....' so that is why the £4800 is in bold letters on the answer paper. But the pre-payment is given and clearly labelled. Also given is the bank payment for rent, and an opening balance pre-payment. From this information you need to prepare the account to find the missing figure, which is 'rent for the year ended etc etc...'

    thank for your reply

    £6000 from bank
    so deduct it £1200 (prepayment)

    £4800 for one financial year while £1200 go to the next financial year?
