The amount paid to the retiring partner/deceased partner's executor in excess of the amount actually due to them is hidden goodwill.

Eg, If the amount due to a retiring partner/deceased partner's executor id Rs. 20000 and the partners decide to pay him Rs. 25000 then ,hidden goodwill = 25000 - 20000 = Rs. 5000.
