    (Fatwa: 511/389/L=1432) (1) Yes, you will have to pay the zakah on the rest amount of 97500 again. (2) The time you pay zakah of amount present in your account i.e. on completion of year, at the same time you should pay the zakah of amount present in your salaried account. There is no zakah on the amount that you had spent from it.
