Guys can u pls explain the following CPT problems to me, i m not able to understand them.. also mention the reasons how the answers have been concluded..

  • A proprietor Mr.A has reported a profit of Rs. 1,25,000 at the end of the financial year after taking into consideration the following amount:

1. the cost of an asset of Rs. 25,000 has been taken as an expense.

2. Mr.A is anticipating a profit of Rs. 10,000 on the future sale of a car shown as an asset in his books.

3. salary of Rs.7000 payable in the financial year has not been taken into account

4. Mr. A purchased an asset for Rs. 75,000 but its fair value on the date of purchase was 85,000. Mr. A recorded the valur of asset in his books by 85,000.

Ans- 1,33,000. HOW?



  • A purchased a car for Rs. 5,00,000 making a down payment of Rs. 1,00,000 and signing a Rs.4,00,000 bill payable due in 60 days. as a result of this transaction,

1. total assets increased by 5,00,000

2. total liabilities increased by 4,00,000

sol. q.1-


+25000 as asset purchased is to be shown in B/S and here he shows in p&l hence profit got reduce by 25000 so add it

- 10000 any anticipating profit should not be shown until it is realised so deduct 10000 from profit.

- 7000 as salary is an expense,show it in P&L.

in 4th point no treatment in P&L as it is B/S item,so no effect in P&L .

correct profit =133000.

In q.2

Ans. is total assets increased by 400000 with liability 400000.

Because As in Asset side-

Car comes-500000

and cash decreases by 100000,so total 400000 increase in asset side.

similarly in liability side Bills payable comes 400000.
