A Capital Account is an account that shows the owner’s equity in the firm and a Partner’s Capital Account is an account that shows the partner’s equity in a partnership firm. Partner’s Capital Account includes transactions between the partners and the firm. Examples of such transactions are: Capital introduced in the firm Capital withdrawn Interest on Capital Interest on Drawings Profit or loss in the financial year, etc. When partners are given interest on their capital contribution in the firm, it is called on Interest on Capital. In case the partnership firm does not have a Partnership Deed, the Partnership Act does not include a provision for Interest on Capital. However, if the partners want they can mutually decide the rate of Interest on Capital. Interest on Capital is calculated on the opening capital of the partners and is only allowed when the firm makes a profit, that is, in case a firm incurs losses, it cannot allow Interest on Capital to its partners. Example: In a partnership firm, there are two partners A and B, and their capital contribution is Rs 10,000 and 20,000 respectively. Interest on capital is @ 10% p.a. The Interest on Capital for both the partners is: Partner A- 10,000 * 10/100 = 1,000 Partner B- 20,000 * 10/100 = 2,000 The journal entry for Interest on Capital is an adjusting entry and is shown as: Interest on Capital A/c Dr. 3,000 To A’s Capital a/c 1,000 To B’s Capital A/c 2,000 Partner’s Capital Account is credited because it is credit in nature and interest on capital is an addition to the account. Interest on Capital Account is debited because it is an expense account. 0 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Related Questions What are some examples of deferred revenue expenses?
