  • As no capital has been introduced during the year, Capital at 31 December = Capital at 1 January + Net profit for the year – Drawings during the year. Therefore, Net profit for the year = Capital at 31 December – Capital at 1 January + Drawings during the year i.e. £26,000 – £25,000 + £16,000 = £17,000
