If the partners hire a lawyer to do the Paper Work of partnership and represent them, then Chat will pay the lawyer an amount of $40000.
Thus, if Chat himself performs all these jobs of Paper Work of partnership and representation, then an entry would be made :
Debit Legal expenses $40000
Credit Capital contribution $40000
It says that the partnership has expended an amount of $40000 and the same earned and contributed towards the Capital to the partnership by Chat.
The partnership instead of paying cash given capital share to the service provider. Chat, the service provider, instead of receiving cash has received capital contribution share in the partnership.
