1 It has been decided to revalue the land and buildings to 12,000,000 at 31 Dec 20×4
2 Trade receivables totalling 200,000 are to be written off
3 During the year there was a contract settlement of 106,000 in which an amount due to a supplier was set off against the amount due from the same company for goods sold to it. No entry has yet been made to record the set off.
4 Some inventory items included in the draft statement of financial position at cost 500,000 were sold after the reporting date for 400,000 with selling expenses of 40,000.
5 The suspense account is made up of two items
A The proceeds of issue of 4,000,000 50 c shares at 1.10 per share credited to the suspense account from the cash book
B The balance of the account is the proceeds of sale of some plant on 1 January 20×4 with a carrying value at the date of sale of 700,000 and which had originally cost 1,400,000. No other accounting entries have yet been made for the disposal apart from the cash book entry for the receipt of proceeds. Depreciation on plant has been charged at 25% straight line basis in preparing the draft statement of financial position without allowing for the sale. The depreciation for the year relating to plant sold should be adjusted for in full (I’m not sure what adjusted for in full means)
Prepare journal entries to clear the suspense account
Proceeds of issue of 4 m shares at $1.10 = 4400
Proceeds of sale of plant (balance ) = 600
Dr suspense a/c = 5000
Cr issued share capital (4m x 60c) = 2000
Share premium (4m x 60 c) = 2400
Disposal a/ c = 600
I’ve copied the answer as is. What I can’t seem to figure out is part 1, proceeds of sale of plant ( balance) 600 (or 600 000 if you will). Of which info is this figure derived from? 🙂 I seem to be stuck here Please assistOctober 27, 2015 at 9:11 am #279212
Either you have mistyped the question, or there is a typing error in your book.
On the Statement of financial position, the suspense account should be 5,000 and the total should be 27,500 (you have typed them the other way round).
Note 5A says that part of the suspense account is the proceeds from the issue of shares, which is 4,000 x 1.10 = 4,400.
Note 5B says that the rest of the suspense account is the proceeds of sale of plant, so this is 5,000 – 4,400 = 600.October 28, 2015 at 2:28 am #279332
Typo in book. Thank you kindly ?October 28, 2015 at 7:51 am #279359

The revaluation reserve is 3000 + 1000
How have they calculated this?December 26, 2015 at 11:26 am #292752
The carrying values of the land and buildings is $8M. It is revalued to $12M. Therefore the revaluation surplus is 12 – 8 = $4MDecember 26, 2015 at 2:58 pm #292760
