Ankita is planning to purchase a new machine costing $ 10,000. Also, she can invest additional capital of $ 4000.

Question 167 (5 of 5 Based on Passage)


Write in Short

Short Answer▾

Suggest two ways in which Ankita could get the additional funds required to purchase the machine. (Marks 2)


(I) By admitting a new partner

(II) Loan from bank


  • The source of finance will depend on its suitability for Ankita. The admission of a new partner will bring additional capital in the business which can be utilized for purchasing the machine without increasing any liability of the business.
  • However, this can also dilute the ownership and control of Ankita on her business. Contrarily, loan from bank is an external liability but can be suitable if Ankita does not want to lose control over her business.

Ankita estimated that machine if purchased would affect the following as-

(i) Prime Cost would directly proportional to the output which increases by 30 %

(ii) Factory overheads would increase by $ 1000

(iii) Markup would have to be reduced to 20 %
