The answer is 2

  1. Not correct
  2. Correct – Amount of the business bank loan = (£53,000 + £6,600) – £25,000 = £34,600. Capital at 1 January = Assets at 1 January – Liabilities at 1 January = (£53,000 + £6,600) – £34,600 :- £25,000. This £25,000 could also be viewed as Tom’s personal interest in the business (the loan he got from his brother). Capital at 31 December = Assets at 31 December – Liabilities at 31 December. This is equal to net assets at 31 December = £37,200. But, Capital at 31 December = Capital at 1 January + Net profit for the year – Drawings during the year. Therefore, £37,200 = £25,000 + £21,100 – Drawings during the year. Therefore, drawings during the year = £8,900.
