(2) Current assets

Rates prepaid 100
Total = # 21,100

Current liabilities
Fixed loan int. 800
Bank overdraft 1,200
Creditors 10,500
Exps. accrued 250
Total = # 12,750

Current assets less Current liabilities
= #21,100 – #8,350

Current assets

Total = # 21,100

Total assets = Fixed assets plus Current assets.
#20,000 + #21,100

Current liabilities
Fixed loan 800
Bank Overdraft 1, 200
