Answer
# 1
this rule says
1. That the solvent partners should bring in cash equal to
their respective shares of the loss on realization
2. That the solvent partners should bear the loss arising
due to the insolvency of a partner in the ratio of their
Last Agreed Capitals
3. that the solvent partner having a debit balance will not
bear the loss arising due to insolvency of a partner

Last Agreed Capital means
1. In case of Fixed Capitals - Fixed Capital (as given in
the Balance Sheet) without any adjustment
2. In case of Fluctuating Capitals - Capital after making
adjustments for past accumulated reserves, profits or
losses, drawings, Interest on capital, Interest on Drawing,
remuneration to a partner etc. to the date of dissolution
but before making adjustment for profit or loss on
realization

In 1930,3 persons started business in britain there names
were GARNER,MURRAY & WILKINS they share profit & loss
equally.On 30 June,1900 Wilkins become insolvent and
nothing amount could be realised from his private estate
and the firm is facing loss of 898 pond including wilkins
drawing of 263 pond which is born by Garner &
murray.But,they disagree with the distribution of
loss.So,they file in the court.
In 1903, chief justice
Mr.JOES gave an important decision in this case that
decision is known as GARNER V/S MURRAY RULE.The decision
was as follow:-
The rule that emerged from the Garner vs
Murray case is applied to adjust the loss, if any, due to
insolvency. This rule states that the loss due to
insolvency of a partner is to be charged to the other
solvent partners who have a credit balance in their
accounts in the ratio of capitals just before dissolution

If on dissolution there is a loss and the loss is such that
it puts one (or more)partner(s)'s capital account into
Debit, that partner must ring in that amount of cash from
his own resources. Once that is doen the amount of cah on
hand will then be equal tot eh balances of the other
partners.

If the partner whose capital account is in debit can not
bring in the cash to the amount of his loss, then the other
partners must bear the resulting loss in the ratio of their
Capital accounts immdeiately prior to this settlement.
This case was ruled on in 1908 by a Judge called Justice
Joyce.

The significant point is that this ruling is invokes only
if the partner CAN NOT from wherevery he may own property,
bring in the loss and is the true measue of the absence
of "limited liabilit" which the Companies' Act provides.

I have heard that this ruling has been overruled in Canada
but have not been able to substantiate that. Thier jsudge
disagreed with Justice Joyce and said that this loss was to
be treated as any other loss among the partners.

In the case the insolvent partner in the partnership, the
liabilities of the insolvent partner shall be borne by the
solvent partners in their capital accounts ratio but not in
their profit and loss sharing ratioo. this ruling was
effected to stop partners from using their profit sharing
ratios to bear the liabilities of the insolvent partner
because profit is not capital in nature, rather than using
capital accounts according to justice Joes- 1903.

When a partner’s capital account shows a debit balance on
dissolution of the firm, he has to pay the debit balance to
the firm to settle his account. If the partner becomes
insolvent, he is unable to pay back the amount owed by him
to the firm in full. The amount not paid is a loss to the
firm which under the Garner vs Murray Rule is to be borne
by the solvent partners.


According to Garner vs Murray Rule:

The loss on account of insolvency of a partner is a CAPITAL
loss which should be borne by the solvent partners in the
ratio of their capitals standing in the balance sheet on
the date of dissolution of the firm.

Notes:

“Capital” in this case relates to the real capital of the
partners and not capital as may be standing in the books of
partnership firm in the names of different partners. This
distinction is especially critical when the partners are
maintaining their capital accounts on fluctuation capital
system. The true capitals according to this rule will be
ascertained after making all adjustments regarding
reserves, drawings, unrecorded assets on the date of the
balance sheet on the date of dissolution of the partnership
firm. When the capitals are FIXED, no such adjustment is
required.
Where a partner is solvent but has a debit balance in
his/her capital account, just before the dissolution of the
partnership firm, such a partner will not be required to
bear the loss on account of insolvency of a partner.

The rules dictates that:-

The solvent partners should bring in cash equivalent to
their respective share of loss on realization and
The loss due to the insolvency of a partner should be then
be divided among the solvent partners in the ratio of
capitals standing after the partners have brought in cash
equal to their share of loss on realization.

1)Under the rule, a partner is required to contribute cash to eliminate the debit balance in his capital account.

2)In the court case of Garner vs. Murray (1904), it was held that subject to any agreement to the contrary, such a debit balance deficiency was to be shared by the other partner not in their profit and loss sharing ratio but “ the ratio of their last agreed capitals”

3)If one partner is insolvent, his capital deficiency will be shared by other partners according to the ‘last agreed capital ratio’ (the ratio of the balances in the capital accounts before the dissolution, in the absence of any agreement to the contrary
