Ya tl me the journal entry sir in dis case with amounts
Debentures Dr. (Nominal Value) Debenture INterest To Bank To Capital Reserve (Profit)
Journal entries are recorded in chronological order. Hence the entries should be made for when debentures are purchased and cancelled as well. When purchased, Debenture redemption a/c.... Dr(cost) Debenture interest a/c...........Dr(interest accrued) To Bank a/c. (Being debentures purchased) As we just only purchased the debentures and not cancelled, debentures a/c cannot be debited as on that date. Later when we cancel the debentures the following entry will be passed. Debentures a/c...........Dr(Face value) P&l a/c(if any loss)....Dr To Debenture Redemption a/c(cost) To capital reserve(if any profit) (Being debentures cancelled) Here profit should be clearly credited to capital reserve because this profit is arised out of capital item(Debt capital) it is called capital profit. But loss should be written-off in p&l a/c. Hope it helps!!!
