19-12 Drawing Accounts Any withdrawal by a partner, whether it is cash or some other asset, is a return of equity to that partner. The partner’s drawing account balance reduces that partner’s equity.
19-14 Allocating Partnership Income or Loss In step 3 the business determines the distributive share for each partner. Step 1.Close revenue to Income Summary. Step 2.Close expenses to Income Summary. Step 3.Close Income Summary to the partners’ capital accounts. Step 4.Close each partner’s drawing account to the partner’s capital account. Compute and record the division of net income or net loss between partners in accordance with the partnership agreement Objective 4
19-15 Allocation of Partnership Income or Loss Based on the partnership agreement. Allocated equally to each partner if the partnership agreement is “silent.” Income distribution does not mean cash distribution.
19-16 Agreed Upon Ratio Step 1:Add the figures given in the ratio. Barret 3 + Reed 2 Example: Barret and Reed agreed that net income should be split in a 3:2 ratio to Barret and Reed, respectively. Step 2:Express each figure as a fraction of the total. Barret’s share 3/5 Reed’s share 2/5 Step 3: Convert each fraction into a percentage. Barret’s share 3/5 = 60% Reed’s share 2/5 = 40% = Total 5
19-17 Net Income X partner’s share percentage: Agreed Upon Ratio 20-- Dec. 31 Income Summary 100, Ellen Barret, Capital 60, Jerry Reed, Capital 40, Net Income = $100,000 Barret’s share ($100,000 x 60% = $60,000) Reed’s share ($100,000 x 40% = $40,000)
19-18 Capital Account Balances Step 1:Add the capital account balances. Barret $53,200 Reed + 28,000 Total = $81,200 Step 2:Express each balance as a fraction and convert it to a percentage. Barret $53,200/$81,200 = % Reed $28,000/$81,200 = %
19-19 Capital Account Balances Net Income X partner’s share percentage: Net Income $100,000 Barret $100,000 x % = $65,517 Reed $100,000 x % = $34,483
19-20 Salary and Interest Allowances Allowances for partners’ salaries and interest on their investments can be included in the allocation of net income or loss. Allowances are debited to the Income Summary account and credited to the partners’ capital accounts. The remaining net income or loss is then allocated in the proper ratio.
19-21 Salary allowances are intended to reward the partners for the time they spend in the business and for the expertise and talents they bring to it. Salary Allowances Salary allowances are withdrawals. Salary allowances do not represent salary expense.
