PREPARATION OF MEMORANDUM BALANCE SHEET

If a balance sheet on the date of dissolution is not given in the question, there is always advisable to prepare Memorandum Balance Sheet on the date of dissolution to ascertain the amount of balancing figure.

Note

· In the absence of any other information “Sundry Assets” should be treatment as balancing figure on the assets side of Balance Sheet.

· If the balance of Partners’ Capital A/cs are not given as on the date on dissolution, first we will find the balance of partners’ capital accounts as on the date of dissolution by recasting the capital accounts.

· When “Sundry Assets” are given in the question and nothing is specified about the difference on the asset side of Balance Sheet, the different should be treated as Dr. balance of Profit and Loss A/c.

Some common mistakes committed by students

· Entries for assets or liabilities taken by partners

· Dissolution Expenses

· Realisation of unrecorded assets

· Payment of Unrecorded Liabilities

· Treatment of Fictitious Assets

Due care should be taken while showing the effect of above mentioned items.
