Answer:
Forfeiture amount per share is the amount to be received by the company on forfeiture of each share.
ForfeitureAmount=ApplicationAmount+AllotmentAmount
Substitute the values in above equation
ForfeitureAmount=Rs2
Forfeiture amount is the money received by the company on forfeiture (cancellation of share) or on the reissue of share.
ForfeitureAmount=No.ofshares×ForfeitureAmount
Substitute the values in the above equation
ForfeitureAmount=10shares×Rs2=Rs20
ForfeitureAmountfor8shares=8shares×Rs2=Rs16
ForfeitureAmountonreissue=8shares×Rs0=Rs0

The extra 1 rupee paid by the shareholder on the reissue is not considered because it is a part of the security premium, not share forfeiture amount.
Profit on the reissue is the profit earned by the company when the forfeited shares are reissued
Profitonreissue=ForfeitedAmountonforfeiture−ForfeitedAmountonReissue
Substitute the values in the above equation
Profitonreissue=Rs16−Rs0=Rs16
Hence, the profit earned on the reissue of shares is Rs 16.
Share forfeiture a/c Dr. Rs16
To share forfeiture a/c Rs16.
