Share Premium A/c .1500.
P&L a/c b/f 4500.
Plus Profit 6000 .10500.


Total Liabilities .16800.


When you post the answer, it throws the alignment of the
figures out. They should all be under each other directly
under the pound sign, all of which should be further to the
right, away from the account descriptions. It is a very
simple P&L a/c and Balance Sheet format. You should be able
to present it with all the figures under each other.
Ideally, you need a spread sheet for that, unless you are
going to present it in hand written form. Total assets
balance total liabilities at £16800. Profit for the year is
£6000 from the P&L a/c, which is transferred to the balance
sheet and added to accumulated profits from the previous
years.
