Accounting for Partnerships

The owners’ interests in the business are divided into long term and short-term interests. (Long-term interests refer to original capital commitments and changes thereon. Short-term interests refer to shares of annual profit and amounts therein withdrawn). The long-term interests are shown in a capital account whereas short-term interests are shown in a current account.

These accounts are kept in a T-form for examination purposes, a separate column being kept for each partner.
