At the time of Purchase of Asset


Development Fund A/c Dr.

   To General Reserve A/c

Fixed Assets A/c Dr.

To Bank A/c

(Being the asset is purchased)

And the General reserve, hence, will exist in the form of the Asset since:



For Depreciation

Depreciation A/c Dr.

  To Asset A/c

(Being the depreciation is charged to the asset)
