Are you looking for the accounting treatment and journal entry of rent paid to a partner in Accounting for partnership firm – Fundamentals chapter of class 12 CBSE Board
I have elaborate this concept in detail.
See, rent paid to partner is considered as charge against profit and recorded in profit and loss account as expense. It is not considered as appropriation thus not recorded in profit and loss appropriation account.
The rent is paid to partner against the personal property of the partner used by the firm.
Rent may be paid either in cash or by cheque during the year or it may have become due and not yet paid.
