Because you have created a bonus issue were you essentially are giving free shares to shareholders, you have to use your reserves to fund it. In this case the £62500 worth of shares.

Usually you want to use your capital reserves first as there few uses for it, which cannot be to fund the payment of dividends

So what did they do to get (37500)

62500 - 25000 = 37500 which they took away from 150,000?

Yh the calculation is right. You usually use share premium first, then revaluation reserve. So as you only have £25000 of share premium you have to use your revaluation reserve to fund the £37500(62500 - 25000) needed.

Anna, Thank you now I understand it.

Are you ding the exam tomorrow and also do you find the shares part difficult as I am seem to find that bit very difficult. Do you know any possible ways to work out the shares bit. I have looked at the mark schemes but they seem to be very different when I compare each paper with the previous years but the similar questions on shares seem to differ in terms of calculations. By the way I am self studying so the book fails to mention these and clearly I cannot seek a teacher for help. So any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
The first step is calculating the number of old shares by using figures from ordinary shares divide by the cost of share.

The second step is adding the number of new shares .

Then , take the total of new shares time cost of share so you will have new ordinary shares .

6250x50= 312000
312000 divided by 5 = 62500
Where you get 5 from
