5. There was a contingent liability in respect of bills of ₹ 1,00,000 which was under discount. Out of them, a holder of one bill of ₹ 20,000 became insolvent.

Working Notes :

(1) Amount paid towards Sandhya’s Loan = Loan amount + Interest due on loan

= 1,20,000 + 6,000 = ₹ 1,26,000

= 1,25,000 – 10 % of 1,25,000 = 1,25,000  – 12,500

= ₹ 1,12,500

(3) Amount paid to Creditors = Creditor – 5 % discount

= 1,20,000 – 5 % on 1,20,000

= 1,20,000 – 6,000

= ₹ 1,14,000

(4) Amount paid towards Bills payable = Bills payable  –  5 % discount

= 20,000 –  5 % on 20,000

= 20,000  – 1,000 =
