so your disposals account will be
dr asset cost (the one you dispose)
cr depreciation (the one you dispose)
cr proceeds from the sale

then your balance cd will be the profit or loss on disposal so
dr profit on disposal
cr loss on disposal

Rights issue:

Dr Bank
Cr Ordinary shares with face value of issue
cr share premium with extra value -(selling price of share minus face value)

Note in exam they can say right issue sold at a premium of 30p, means extra above the face value e.g. face value = 50p, then rights issue will be for 50p+30p=80p

Do we need to know the double entry by the way. I have never seen a question which shows you need to know it. Also, I don't get what is meant by a double entry of this stuff. Why do we debit the ordinary shares and why credit the share premium.

Bonus issue- find number of shares then * figure b4 word :FOR, and / by figure after word FOR.
Value of bonus = number of bonus * face value per share, then e.g value = £1million, this will come from other sections of statement of changes in equity, but retained earnings is used last as dividends come from here. e.g. :
Cr Ordinary shares: £1million
dr Share premium £0.4million (e.g.)
dr revaluation reserve- £0.3 million (e.g.)
dr retained earnings - £0.3 million(e.g.)

double entry not normal, more for statement of changes in equity.

DEAD CLIC:

ORDINARY SHARES GOES UP , HENCE CREDIT as part of capital in CLIC,Share premium goes up, then Credit, as part of capital in CLIC.

Why do you have a posting to the revaluation reserve re a share issue? Struggling to understand this leg of your journal.

Do they teach AQA to any particular accounting standards, the reason I ask is revalation reserves are currently being merged into retained earnings under FRS102 but not sure if at this level the different reporting regimes are examined?

Revaluation reserve can come into statement of changes of equity, via increase in NCA, as a result can be used when bonus shares issued

Thanks, really interesting, shows how out of date I have become re Companies Acts etc.

It is a strange use of such a reserve, non distributable re distributions yet may be used re share issue. It means a company wishing to both issue bonus shares and pay a dividend could use the RV to issue the shares preserving the retained profits for the distribution.
