Terry Marks is a well known architect. He wants to start his own business and convinces Rob Norris, his cousin and a civil engineer, to contribute capital. Together, they form a partnership to design and build commercial real estate. On January 1, 2011, Norris invests a building worth $126,000 and equipment valued at $132,000 as well as $52,000 in cash. Although Marks makes no tangible contribution to the partnership, he will operate the business and be an equal partner in the beginning capital balances. To entice Norris to join this partnership, Marks draws up the following profit and loss agreement: Norris will be credited annually with interest equal to 10 percent of the beginning capital balance for the year. Norris will also have added to his capital account 20 percent of partnership income each year (without regard for the preceding interest figure) or $7,000, whichever is larger. All remaining income is credited to Marks. Neither partner is allowed to withdraw funds from the partnership during 2011. Thereafter, each can draw $7,000 annually or 10 percent of the beginning capital balance for the year, whichever is larger. The partnership reported a net loss of $12,000 during the first year of its operation. On January 1, 2012, Alice Dunn becomes a third partner in this business by contributing $60,000 cash to the partnership. Dunn receives a 25 percent share of the business’s capital. The profit and loss agreement is altered as follows: Norris is still entitled to (1) interest on his beginning capital balance as well as (2) the share of partnership income just specified. Any remaining profit or loss will be split on a 6:4 basis between Marks and Dunn, respectively. Partnership income for 2012 is reported as $96,000. Each partner withdraws the full amount that is allowed. On January 1, 2013, Dunn becomes ill and sells her interest in the partnership (with the consent of the other two partners) to Judy Postner. Postner pays $215,000 directly to Dunn. Net income for 2013 is $95,000 with the partners again taking their full drawing allowance. On January 1, 2014, Postner withdraws from the business for personal reasons. The articles of partnership state that any partner may leave the partnership at any time and is entitled to receive cash in an amount equal to the recorded capital balance at that time plus 10 percent. As luck would have it, also on January 1, 2014, two young partners are admitted from the staff, each at 50% of Postner departing capital withdrawal. James Smith and Savannah (her full name) each contribute cash in exchange for their capital interest. Part A: Prepare journal entries to record the preceding transactions on the assumption that the bonus (or no revaluation) method is used. Drawings need not be recorded, although the balances should be included in the closing entries. When doing the journal entries where does the $3,800 come from on the Profit or Loss to the capital of Norris. Also where is the $15,800 coming from to profit or loss from the partners (each with $7,900).
