    Hey - thanks for the inbox.

    Most of the stuff here will be covered at level 3 - did you say you are currently on level 2 ?

    If you are required to complete this for a job interview then employer is looking to gauge your current skills and abilities. If you get someone else to come up with the answers for you then it won't really give the employer a chance to find out what work you are currently able to do comfortably.

    I know this may sound horrible - and I really don't mean it to be. My concern is you could get us all to help you with the right answers, and then if you get the job the employer is going to expect you to be able to do all or most of this stuff without any help - which may end up making you feel really stressed as you may not get the support and training that you need should you be successful at the interview.

    I'd suggest giving the questions your best shot on your own and then come back with your answers to ask specific questions about any areas you are struggling with. If you follow this process at least in an interview you can say that when you were first presented with the question you didn't know how to do X,Y and Z, but you gave it your best shot, got feedback and you have now learned something new. You could then explain how this demonstrates how you are willing to learn.

    Out of interest - what job is it that you are interviewing for ? Sounds like a practice role ? We'll try and help and support you as much as possible, - Good Luck :)

    Question 1, work out opening capital Jan 2007 by adding up assets and take away liabilities, then do income exp sheet to show whats called surplus ie profit, then do a balance sheet with the final part of the balance sheet being financed by which is opening capital plus surplus. Its just the same as a p and l and balance sheet, tbh this should come natural.

    To be precise question is asking for accumlated fund (capital), income and exp surplus or deficit (income minus exp), then balance sheet ( fixed assets +(current assets - current liab)) which should equal financed by opening accumm fund + surplus.

    question 2 . you do p and l account to get net profit then add interest on drawings for each PARTNER, then less interest on capital for each PARTNER, then less salary, then less share of profit at 50/50 FOR EACH PARTNER should come to zero.
    Current account left side for each ARTNER .....balance bf, int in drawings, drawings, . Right side balance bf, int on capital, salary, share of profit, balance cd........ either side to balance off. HEADINGS DATE, DETAILS, EACH PARTNER. FOR BOTH DR AND CR.
    Balance sheet normal way then financed by for each.......... which is capital plus current account for each........

    easier lol................what sammy was asked to do in question 1 is aimed at non profit organisations, hence why hmrc call it income and exp and not p and l...........accumulated fund what they like to call capital. Its based on membership fees being paid such as the british legion club.
  • Sammmy88Sammmy88 Trusted Regular Posts: 283Registered
    So, I showed my tutor the question with the income and expense account.. And she said that there is an expense wrong and an expense missing... Could the expense missing be something to do with buying the second hand tractor? Also the balance sheet isn't right.... Any help wOuld be appreciated. Thanks :-)
