Short Questions for NCERT Accountancy Solutions Part 2 Class 12 Chapter 2

1. What is meant by a Debenture?

The term debenture is derived from the Latin word “debere”, which translates to borrow. Debentures are not backed by any collaterals. These are issued by governments and corporations to raise funds or capital for long-term borrowing.

2. What does a Bearer Debenture mean?

When records are not maintained for debenture and holders, and the debenture can be transferred by delivery, such debentures are known as Bearer Debentures. These debentures are issued physically on paper and are payable to the bearer of the debenture. These are also called unregistered debentures.

3. State the meaning of ‘Debentures issued as a Collateral Security’.

Collateral security refers to an additional layer of security over and above the primary security. In case a company takes a loan from a financial institution, the company issues debentures which are additional security or collateral security. The money lender will not be receiving any interest on these debentures. In case the company defaults in making payment and the primary security is not sufficient to cover the debt, then debentures can be used to recover the amount.

4. What is meant by ‘Issue of debentures for Consideration other than Cash’?

A company purchases any asset from its vendors or suppliers and issues debentures to them instead of paying in cash. This process is known as the issue of debenture for consideration other than cash. It helps both the seller and purchaser as the seller gets interest on debentures issued, and the purchaser does not need to arrange cash immediately. Debentures are issued at par, premium or at a discounted rate to the seller.

 

5. What is meant by ‘Issue of debenture at discount and redeemable at premium?

It may happen that due to challenging market conditions, a company has to raise funds from the market by issuing debenture below its par value and, to attract investors’ interest, has to offer redeemable value higher than its par value. This is termed as the issue of debenture at discount and redeemable at premium. The difference that is generated due to such an arrangement is treated as a loss on the issue of a debenture.

6. What is ‘Capital Reserve’?

The reserve that is created from the capital profits is called a Capital Reserve. These are profits that are obtained from activities that are different from normal business activities. Examples of such activities are profit obtained from reissuing of debentures, premium on issue of share and debenture, profit redemption on debenture, profits obtained from the sale of fixed assets, etc. These can be used to issue bonus shares but cannot be used for paying dividends.

Long Questions for NCERT Accountancy Solutions Part 2 Class 12 Chapter 2

1. Explain the different types of debentures?

Debenture refers to a long-term instrument that companies use to borrow money from the market. It is the acknowledgement of a debt that is taken by a company. There are many types of debentures based on their nature, which are:

1. Based on the tenure

Debentures are also called long-term debts. A company issues debentures to get funding for achieving growth in the long term. Interest needs to be paid on those loans. This interest is an expense for the business and is deducted as per applicable tax laws. Hence, debentures are known as loan capital.

3. Describe the meaning of ‘Debenture Issued as Collateral Securities’. What accounting treatment is given to the issue of debentures in the books of accounts?

Collateral security refers to an additional layer of security over and above the primary security. It is seen in the case of a company taking a loan from a financial institution. In such cases, the company issues debentures which are additional security or collateral security. The money lender will not be receiving any interest on these debentures. In case the company defaults in making payment and the primary security is not sufficient to cover the debt, then debentures can be used to recover the amount.

Treatment of Debentures:

Debentures, when issued for the first time by a company, are not active, and to make them active an accounting entry is required to be passed

12-2

For creating an accounting record, Debenture Suspense A/C is debited, and the debenture account is credited. Debentures are represented on the liabilities side, and Debenture suspense A/c is shown on the credit side.

1. Fixed Instalment Method: Also known as the equal instalment method, this method is used when debentures are redeemed in a lump sum and after a specific time period. In this method, an equal amount of discount or loss is written off till the debenture is not paid off. The formula sed to calculate the discount amount is given below

12-4

2. Variable Instalment Method: This method is also known as Fluctuating or Reducing Instalment Method or Proportion Method. In this method, debentures are paid in annual drawings or instalments.

Therefore the amount of discount will vary each year, and it will be more in the initial years and will subsequently reduce at the end of redemption.

6. Differentiate between redemption of debentures out of capital and out of profits.

Redemption of Debentures Out of Capital

It refers to the condition when the debentures are redeemed from the capital without utilising the profits for redemption. Such a condition results in no profit being transferred to the Debenture Redemption Reserve, a reserve that needs to be created as debentures cannot be redeemed entirely from the capital. SEBI has issued guidelines for the redemption of debenture by creating a Debenture Redemption reserve. However, there are some industries that are exempted from creating a reserve, and they are:

1. Companies that issue debentures with a maturity of 18 months

2. Companies involved in the infrastructure sector, like maintenance, construction, and business development activities

Redemption of Debenture Out of Profits

Debentures, when redeemed out of profit, do not utilize the capital for redemption. It is mandatory to create a DRR before redeeming the debenture. This rule has been created by SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India), and as per that, a company should transfer an amount equal to 50% of debentures issued to DRR before redeeming the debentures. Profit gets transferred to DRR from the Profit and Loss Appropriation Account. This reduces the total profit, and therefore this process is called Redemption of Debenture out of profits. DRR is shown under the Reserve and Surplus section of the Liabilities part of the balance sheet. After all debentures are redeemed, a DRR account is closed by transferring it to the general reserve.

7. Explain the guidelines of SEBI for creating Debenture Redemption Reserve.

These points need to be followed while creating Debenture Redemption Reserve (DRR):

1. DRR needs to be created for companies which issue debentures with a maturity of more than 18 months.

2. For partly convertible debentures, DRR needs to be created for the non-convertible portion of the debenture in the same way as is done for fully non-convertible debenture issue.

3. Company should create DRR equivalent to 50% of the debenture issue before debenture redemption commences.

4. Withdrawal from DRR is permissible only after 10% of the debenture liability has been actually redeemed by the company.

As per SEBI’s guidelines the following type of companies will be exempted from creating DRR:

1. Company issuing debentures with a maturity of up to 18 months.

2. Companies involved in the infrastructure sector, like maintenance, construction, and business development activities

8. Describe the steps for creating Sinking Fund for redemption of debentures.

The following steps are involved:

1. Calculate the amount from the profit that needs to be set aside every year with information obtained from Sinking Fund Table.

2. This amount that is set aside every year in Step 1 is transferred to a Debenture Redemption Fund (Sinking Fund) by debiting P & L Appropriation Account.

3. The instalment hence determined is invested in obtaining the amount essential for redeeming the debenture by debiting the DRF (Debenture Redemption Fund).

4. The interest on the amount thus invested will be received on a bi-annual or annual basis.

5. The total investment, which includes investment and the interest, is re-invested in the following year.

6. Repeat the steps of transferring and investing till the last instalment, which will be debited from the P & L appropriation account.

7. The investment is sold off at the year of redemption

8. The profit/loss that is obtained from the sale of investment is transferred appropriately by debiting/crediting Debenture Redemption Fund (DRF) investment account to the DRF Account.

9. Payment is processed for the holders of the debenture

10. The balance remaining, if any, from the DRF Account is transferred to the General Reserve.

9. Can a company purchase its own debentures in the open market? Explain.

Redemption of debentures by purchase in the open market refers to the condition when a company is authorised by its Article of Association to be able to purchase its own debentures. The debentures are purchased to serve the following purpose:

1. As a source of investment which can be sold at a higher price on a later date to earn more profit

2. To cancel debenture liabilities if the debenture rate is higher than the rate of interest in the market.

10. What is meant by conversion of debentures? Describe the method of such a conversion.

The situation where a debenture holder is able to convert existing debentures into equity shares or new debentures after the expiry of the existing debenture’s time period is known as redemption of debentures by conversion. The issue price of shares must be equal to or less than the amount that is received from debentures, this should be kept in mind by the debenture holder when exercising the conversion option.

Debentures that can be converted to equity shares after a specified time are called Convertible Debentures. The time at which it can be converted to equity shares is mentioned when the debentures are issued. There are two types:

1. Partly convertible debentures: In this, only a part of the debentures is eligible to be converted into equity shares.
