No. 2(b) (i): Below are the necessary double entries related to the preparation of the Capital Adjustment Account for the partnership before the admittance of Janet:
**Note that the balance on the revaluation account would now be $34,000, as there are two credit entries, $18,000 and $20,000 and a debit entry of $4,000, (18,000+20,000-4,000). The balance of the revaluation account will be split between both partners using the old profit sharing ratio.
Therefore: Kendal’s portion will be ½ x $34,000 = $17,000 and
Kwame’s portion will be ½ x $34,000 = $17,000.
Now that all the necessary entries has been identified the Capital Adjustment Account can be prepared.

Credit: Janet’s Capital $80,000
No. (b) (ii): Preparation of the Balance Sheet to show the opening position of the new partnership of Kendal, Kwame and Janet:
