My pleasure.
How do we calculate the net profit? In the case of 5% of depreciation of building,what is its net profit of the profit and loss a/c,apart from this .
I would like to go the basics to make my point clear.  When amount of depreciation was K2500 (@10%), profit was K10155.  You know when expenses decrease, profit increase.  So when depreciation will be K1250 (@5%), profit will increase to K11405.  This is so because depreciation has reduced by K1250, resulting in increase of profit by K1250.
By looking and studying the trading and profit and loss account,I am still of how you get 2025 as depreciation on van and 11405 as the net profit using the 5%  on cost of depreciation on building..And on the trial balance which mention the Acc.dep on building, 2500 and Acc.dep on van 3000.Can you further explain and re-enter the figures into the trading and profit and loss account using the 5% depreciation on building?
Please check the necessary changes have been made in the answer above.
