How many maximum minutes could we take to solve the calculation problems within the quiz , during the exam ?
The drawing per month was a real distractor for me. That took away my time. Need to practice

I mean to say, how much maximum time should one take and not exceed per such big calculation questions during the exam ?
John Moffat says

2 or 3 minutes per question.

Is book keeping control and the ledger same thing
August 19, 2020 at 2:34 pm
Why are you asking that under a test of Chapter 2 of our lectures notes?
In future please ask questions in the Ask the Tutor Forum.
The word ‘ledger’ means book, and there are several different ledgers.
There is no such expression as ‘bookkeeping control’. You may be referring to control accounts in which case they are accounts in the general (nominal) ledger.
All of this is explained in my free lectures. The lectures are a complete free course for Paper FA and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.

Thank you sir
a phenomenal master
for the exam is enough to learn just those thing that you taught us or does it need to study other course ?
again thank you sir

The lectures are a complete free course. However it is vital that you buy a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers. It is full of exam-standard questions for practice, and practice is essential for passing the exam.

Dear sir. Can you explain why we DR. REV RESERVE AND CR RETAINED EARNINGS when we have excess depreciation.
March 6, 2020 at 3:13 pm
It is because Revaluation Reserves cannot be paid out as dividends, as I explain in my lectures.
However, given that the excess depreciation reduces the gain on revaluation it does them become distributable and so it can be transferred to Revenue Reserves (which is distributable as dividend). However, it is not compulsory but the company can do this if they want to.

Dear Sir John need some explanation & guidance to understand the question-3 of this test.
March 6, 2020 at 7:56 am
It is testing the accounting equation – did you watch the free lecture before attempting the test?
We know the profit for the year (30,600), we know the capital introduced (7,200), and we know the drawings ((12 x 960) + 840). So we can calculate in the increase in net assets over the year using the accounting equation.
Given that we know the net assets at the end of the year and we now know the increase over the year, we can now calculate what the net assets were at the start of the year.

Yes sir i have watched the lectures the thing which was confusing was that year of 2012 & little concept of opening & closing balance of Net asset calculation.
March 9, 2020 at 4:04 pm
I hope that it is clear now.

On the FA practice question 5, we are asked to calculate the profit for the year. But the answer given as the correct answer is the increased in net assets not taking the drawings and capital introduced into consideration. Please can you explain a little further?
March 5, 2020 at 1:50 pm
My question is for FA Chapter 2 practice question 5. Thank you.
March 5, 2020 at 2:49 pm
The answer given is not the increase in net assets (maybe you didn’t scroll down the explanation).
We know the increase in net assets is 3,000. We know that the capital introduced is 2,000 and that the drawings are 12 x 500 = 6,000.
Therefore the profit = 3,000 – 2,000 + 6,000 = 7,000 (which is what is given as the correct answer).
May 6, 2020 at 8:14 am
Good day sir, thank you for this platform. With question 3, why did we have to add the drawings of year 2007 instead of subtracting it, as i got the point of subtracting capital introduced and net profit but i could’t explain why we didn’t subtract the entire drawings of 12,360 from that year?
May 6, 2020 at 8:27 am
It is because we are working backwards. We know the net assets at the end of the year and we are calculating what they were at the start of the year. Drawings reduce the net assets over the year and so the figure at the start of the year will have been higher than at the end of the year.

Increased in net assets = increased in capital
Increase in Capital = Final Net Assets – Liabilities – Initial Net Assets
Substitute into formula 1 .
Increased in net assets = Final Net Assets – Liabilities – Initial Net Assets
We know the Increased in net asset is $3000 now .
Substitute $3000 into formula 3 .
Increased in Net Assets = Capital Introduced + Profits – Drawing
