Answer to third Question: As an answer to the third question, we feel that YES the partners would
have got their proportional values of equity calculated in the question 2, if the partnership was
dissolved on 30th March. This is because, as of 30th March all the companies assets were intact and thus
the value of the assets which was calculated would have been used to pay the liabilities first and the
rest of the money would have been equally distributed among the partners as their share of equity.
Only if the balance sheet would have been made on 31st of March that the stolen items would have
been considered and the respective amounts been deducted from the equity of the partners who took

2. There is no mention about the company taking any loan or credit.Thus the difference in the amount
of assets and (liability + owner's equity) is adjusted by subtracting the difference equally from each of
the owner's equity (As the entity is being dissolved, the liabilities will have a stronger claim against the
assets than equity).
3. Personal belongings/Assets of Mr.Antoine & Mrs Landers not considered in balance sheet as they are
not the assets of partnership.
1. The Balance Sheet was to be made as on 30th of March 2010. It is also mentioned that on the
morning of 31st of March, Mrs. Antoine discovered that the Cash Register and the cash it contained, was
missing. Thus we assume that the company had all its assets intact (including the cash register and the
money in it) till 30th of March.

Calculation of Owner's Equity for the balance sheet as on 30th March
On 30th of March,
The total assets of the company had a value of $57,629
The total liabilities of the company had a value of $20,243
The initial amounts that three of the partners had put in as equity was $48,000
Thus, if we add the values of liability and the initial owner's equity values, we get a sum of $68,483 which
exceeds the value of assets by $10,854.
We know that in case an entity is dissolved, the Liabilities are a stronger claim against the assets than equity.
Thus the owners have to suffer on their equity amounts for compensating the loss.
In the start of business it was agreed that the partnership would share the profits proportianally as per their
contributed capital. As in this case the partners contributed equal amounts as equity, the loss would also be
shared equally. Thus one third of $10,854 which amounts to $3618 is deducted from $16000 to get the value of
each of the owner's equity, which amounts to $12382.
Calculation of the remaining value of Local Operating License Cost
An amount of $1,428 was paid for local operating licenses and good for one year beginning November 1.
As the business had operate for 5 months as on March 30th 2010, the value of 5 months of operation was
calculated and deducted from $1,428. The remaining amount ($833) was put as an asset.
1428 - (1428 * 5/12) = 833
