  • In this circumstance, goods worth Rs.10,000 (which is lost by fire) is to be credited in trading account separately ( not to be clubbed with closing stock).
  • Then since Rs.6000/- is to be received by insurance claim. (so we are not received ,we have to receive)so this should be posted at asset side of the balance sheet
  • Rs.4000/- to be debited in profit loss account.(Because its a loss)
