Gray, Stone, and Lawson open an accounting practice on
January 1, 2011, in San Diego, California, to be operated as a partnership.
Gray and Stone will serve as the senior partners because of their years of
experience. To establish the business, Gray, Stone, and Lawson contribute cash
and other properties valued at \$210,000, \$180,000, and \$90,000, respectively. Articles
of partnership agreement are drawn up. It has the following stipulations:
â¢ Personal drawings are allowed annually up to an amount
equal to 10 percent of the beginning capital balance for the year.
â¢ Profits and losses are allocated according to the
following plan:
(1) A salary allowance is credited to each partner in an
amount equal to \$8 per billable hour worked by that individual during the year.
(2) Interest is credited to the partnersâ capital accounts
at the rate of 12 percent of the average monthly balance for the year (computed
without regard for current income or drawings).
(3) An annual bonus is to be credited to Gray and Stone.
Each bonus is to be 10 percent of net income after subtracting the bonus, the
salary allowance, and the interest. Also included in the agreement is the
provision that the bonus cannot be a negative amount.
(4) Any remaining partnership profit or loss is to be
divided evenly among all partners. Because of monetary problems encountered in
getting the business started, Gray invests an additional \$9,100 on May 1, 2011.
On January 1, 2012, the partners allow Monet to buy into the partnership. Monet
contributes cash directly to the business in an amount equal to a 25 percent interest
in the book value of the partnership property subsequent to this contribution. The
partnership agreement as to splitting profits and losses is not altered upon
Monetâs entrance into the firm; the general provisions continue to be
applicable.

years of operation follow:

To avoid
more conflict, the partners have decided to cease operations and sell all
assets. Using this information, answer the following questions. Each question
should be viewed as an independentsituation related to the
partnershipâs liquidation.

a.The
\$10,000 cash that exceeds the partnership liabilities is to be disbursed
immediately. If profits and losses are allocated to Adams, Baker, Carvil, and
Dobbs on a 2:3:3:2 basis, respectively, how will the \$10,000 be divided?
b.The
\$10,000 cash that exceeds the partnership liabilities is to be disbursed
immediately. If profits and losses are allocated on a 2:2:3:3 basis,
respectively, how will the \$10,000 be divided?
c.The
building is immediately sold for \$70,000 to give total cash of \$110,000. The
liabilities are then paid, leaving cash balance of \$80,000. This cash is to be
distributed to the partners. How much of this money will each partner receive
if profits and losses are allocated to Adams, Baker, Carvil, and Dobbs on a
1:3:3:3 basis, respectively?
d.Assume
that profits and losses are allocated to Adams, Baker, Carvil, and Dobbs on a 1:3:4:2
basis, respectively. How much money must the firm receive from selling the land
and building to ensure that Carvil receives a portion?
