The exam is a few months away yet, but I thought it would be good just to have a thread for any questions/help e.t.c

Are the Income Statements and Balance Sheets the same layout for Sole Trader and Partnerships or are there some differences?

As far as I know there are NO partnership Income statements or Balance sheets in Unit 2 (So ignore the phrase 'Sole Trader' for the income statement and Balance sheet part of the notes as it is irrelevant). You don't have to worry about that until Unit 3 when you have to do partnership capital accounts, profit splitting etc.

Unit 2 basically covers:
- Types of ownerships i.e sole trader/partnerships/limited liability companies & pros & cons for all
- Accounting Concepts (Remembered by GOCOMPARE)
- Bad debts recovered & Income received in advance and due
- Provision for doubtful debts
- Reducing balance depreciation
- Sales & re-evaluation of non-current assets
- Capital and revenue expenditure
- Shares inc. rights issues & bonus shares
- Ratios
- Impact of ICT
- Cash Budgets

As for Income statements & Balance sheets, any of the above would be in the additional info, particularly depreciation, bad debts e.t.c

okay...
Q: the business will issue 2 for every one share at a price of 25p as a
rights issue


ordinary shares at 20p each 100,000
share premium 50,000
revaluation reserve 150,000
300,000

first you need to work out how many shares the business has...
so if it says ordinary shares at 20p each and £100,000 then you do 100,000/0.2 to get 500,000. this is how many shares the business already has issued.

If the question says they will issue 2 shares for every 1 there is already at 25p then you will do 500,000 x 2 =1,000,000 (this is how many shares will be issued )
now, 20p was the original share price but notice it has gone up by 5p to 25p

so in the new share issue you will have 1,000,000 x 0.2= 200,000 (this is the finance raised through the share issue
and 1,000,000 x0.05 = 50,000 this is the share premium.

now.. If the question says its a share issue then the new finance raised will be added to the ordinary shares in the equity section 100,000 + 200,000 = 300,000
and the share premium will be added to the original share premium in the equity section 50,000 + 50,000 = 100,000

equity section
shares at 20p each 300,000
share premium 100,000
evaluation reserve 100,000
500,000


ever if the question says it will be a bonus issue It will be at the same as the original share price ( In this case 20p )
if the business is offering again 2 for everyone one and they have 500,000 shares in issue. as before,the new issue is 1,000,000 shares

so we will do 1,000,000 x 0.2 = 200,000 which is the new value of the bonus issue

equity section before bonus issue

shares at 20p each 100,000
share premium 50,000
revaluation reserve 150,000
300,000

tion after bonus issue

shares at 20p each 300,000 (old + bonus issue)
share premium -
revaluation reserve -
300,000


basically in a bonus issue the value of the bonus issue (here £200,000 ) is added to what was there originally to make £300,000
then the sections below (share premium and revaluation reserve) are subtracted until the value of the bonus issue 200,000 has been subtracted. which will leave the same balance as was there originally in the equity section


hope this helps!!!

Hey for the disposal, if you imagine the disposal account. On the debit is the cost of the NCA that was sold and a profit made on sale if there is one. On the credit is the amount of deprecation of that particular asset, how much it was sold for labelled as bank and then any loss if there is one, hope this helps

I could do with some idea too. Feel like I've got loads to revise, done a couple of past papers this morning but could do with some predictions of what will be on it 😕
