    My predictions of what will come up is: Task 1: Stock Valuation Task 2: Partnership Accounts Task 3: Profit & Loss with Incomplete Records Task 4: Cash Flow Statements

    I do think there will be 14 or 16 mark Q on either Cash flow or IAS's too, we'll see

    piecemeal dissolution will not come up.
    What's the difference between "dissolution of partnership" and "PIECEMEAL Dissolution?"Is it the same thing? Thanks

    Piecemeal refers to the way realisation of assets occurs.

    Frequently the assets may take a long time to be turned into cash (i.e. ‘realised’). The partners will naturally want payments made to them on account as cash is received. They will not want to wait for payments until the dissolution is completed just for the convenience of the accountant. There is, however, a danger that if too much is paid to a partner, and he is unable to repay it, then the person handling the dissolution could be placed in a very awkward position. To counteract this, the concept of prudence is brought into play.

    This is done as follows:
    (a) Each receipt of sale money is treated as being the final receipt, even though more could be received.

    (b) Any loss then calculated so far to be shared between partners in profit and loss sharing ratios.

    (c) Should any partner’s capital account after each receipt show a debit balance, then he is assumed to be unable to pay in the deficiency. This deficit will be shared (failing any other agreement) between the partners using the Garner v Murray rule.

    (d) After payments of liabilities and the costs of dissolution the remainder of the cash is then paid to the partners.

    (e) In this manner, even if no further money were received, or should a partner become insolvent, the division of the available cash would be strictly in accordance with the legal requirements.

    It will not be examined as there is not enough time to complete a decent question given the vast number of calculations.

    i definately got the first question fully correct because the bank balanced off with the capital account and i know i did evrything right


    for the p/l account i got a net loss of 23925, i used the given figure for cost of sales and divided it by 80 and multiplied it by 100 to get sales, then divided the sales figure by 5 to get gross profit (as it said the GP margin was 20%), but i dont know if its right.

    how many expenses did you have, i only had like three or four, cash stolen, depreciation, wages and there might have been another one but i cnat rmeebr.

    and what did you get for stock valuation i cant clearly rememberbut i think i got summat like 1515.60 and got summat like 4314.40 for gross profit

    the question oncash flow i got 91880, what did you or anyone reading this get. please put any answers you got or think you got

    to get purchases, you use the stock turnover figure which is (cost of sales/average stock) = 5 use this to get closing stock. Once gross profit, closing stock and opening stock is known, we can work out purchases.
