Thank you Sir.
The question is for trading and p/l a/c and balance sheet. In trial balance interest on loan is provided rs 300.In adjustment interest on loan at 6% p.a.  is unpaid for six months. The amount of loan taken was rs 9500. In solutions rs 585 Is debited to p/l a/CA's interest on loan. My question is that why rs 570 is not debited rather rs 585 was debited because by calculation total interest on loan is rs 570.
