whenevr a partner is entitled to borne realisation exp. then he is always given a commission to do so. 

Note :-

borne is treated as personal exp. of a partner whereas takeover is a sort of bearing the realstion exp. then commission is not given. 

Ans. to ur Q. :-

the amt. of realisation exp. will debited to the entitled patners capitalA/c nd his commission will credited in the capitalA/c. On the other hand the amt. of commission will also be debited to realisation A/c.

Dear Becky,

No entry shall be passed in the books of Accounts in this context because a partner is paying a realisation expenses from his pocket and getting a commission for the same. It means the amount of Expenses is compensated ny the amount of Commission.
If u will see the Journal posted by Piyush u will come to know the accounts are nullified..!! Hence no Entry is recorded
