#### Question 1:

Identify various matters that need adjustments at the time of admission of a new partner.

The following are the various items that need to be adjusted at the time of admission of a new partner.

1. Profit Sharing Ratio: Calculation of new profit sharing ratio.

2. Goodwill: Valuation and adjustment of goodwill among the sacrificing old partners.

3. Revaluation of Assets and Liabilities: Assets and liabilities are revalued to ascertain the current value of the assets and liabilities of the partnership firm. Moreover, the profit or loss due to the revaluation need to be distributed among the old partners.

4. Accumulated profits, losses and reserves are distributed among the old partners in their old ratio.

5. Adjustment of capital of the partners.

#### Question 2:

Why i is it necessary to ascertain new profit sharing ratio even for old partners when a new partner is admitted?

When new partner/s is/are admitted, then the old partners in the partnership firm need to sacrifice their share of profit in favour of the new partner/s. This reduces the share of profit of the old partners ,hence, it is necessary to ascertain the new profit sharing ratio even for the old partners in the event of admission of new partner/s.

#### Question 3:

What is sacrificing ratio? Why is it calculated?

Sacrificing ratio refers to the ratio in which the old partners of a partnership firm surrender their share of profit in favour of the new partner/s. It is calculated as a difference between the old ratio and the new ratio of the old partners.

Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio − New Ratio

It is very important to calculate this ratio, as the new partner need to compensate the old partners for sacrificing their share of profit. The new partner compensates the old partners by making payment to them in the form of goodwill that is transferred among the old partners in their sacrificing ratio.

#### Question 4:

On what occasions sacrificing ratio is used?

The following are the different situations when sacrificing ratio is used.

1. When the existing partners of a partnership firm agree to change the share of profit among themselves.

2. When a new partner is admitted in the partnership firm and the amount of the goodwill brought by him/her is transferred among the old partners in sacrificing ratio of the old partners.

#### Question 5:

If some goodwill already exists in the books and the new partner brings in his share of goodwill in cash, how will you deal with existing amount of goodwill?

If goodwill already appears in the books of old firm (before the admission of new partner), then this should be written off among the old partners in their old profit sharing ratio. The following Journal entry is passed.

 Old Partner’s Capital A/c Dr. To Goodwill A/c (Goodwill written off in old ratio among the old partners)

#### Question 6:

Why is there need for the revaluation of assets and liabilities on the admission of a partner?

At the time of admission of a new partner, it becomes very necessary to revalue the assets and liabilities of a partnership firm for ascertaining its true and fair values. This is done because the value of assets and liabilities may have increased or decreased and consequently their corresponding figures in the old balance sheet may either be understated or overstated. Moreover, it may also be possible that some of the assets and liabilities are left unrecorded. Thus, in order to record the increase and decrease in the market value of the assets and liabilities, Revaluation Account is prepared and any profits or losses associated with this increase or decrease are distributed among the old partners of the firm.

#### Question 1:

Do you advise that assets and liabilities must be revalued at the time of admission of a partner? If so, why? Also describe how is this treated in the book of account?

Yes, it is advisable to revalue the assets and liabilities at the time of admission of a new partner for ascertaining the true and fair value of the assets and liabilities. This is done because the value of assets and liabilities may have increased or decreased and consequently their corresponding figures in the old balance sheet may either be understated or overstated. Moreover, it may also be possible that some of the assets and liabilities are left unrecorded. Thus, in order to record the increase and decrease in the market value of the assets and liabilities, Revaluation Account is prepared and any profits or losses associated with this increase or decrease are distributed among the old partners of the firm.

Accounting Entries in the Books of Accounts:

The following Journal entries are recorded in the Revaluation Account on the date of admission of a new partner.

i) For increase in value of assets:

 Assets A/c Dr. To Revaluation A/c (Increase in the value of assets)

ii) For decrease in value of assets:

Or,

vii) For transfer of debit balance of Revaluation Account:

 Old Partner’s Capital A/c Dr. To Revaluation A/c (Loss on revaluation is transferred to the Old Partner’s Capital Account in their old profit sharing ratio)

#### Question 2:

What is goodwill? What are the factors that effect goodwill?

Goodwill is an intangible asset of a firm. It is the value of a firm’s reputation and its good brand name in the market. A firm earns goodwill by its hard work and thereby winning the blind trust and faith of the customers by fulfilling their demands in both qualitative and quantitative aspects. A positive goodwill helps a firm to earn supernormal profits compared to its competitors that earns normal profits (as their goodwill is zero). In other words, goodwill ensures greater future profits as there will be greater number of satisfied customers in the future. As in the words of Lord Eldon, “Goodwill is nothing more than the probability, that the old customers will resort to the old place.”

Characteristics of Goodwill

The following are the characteristics of goodwill.

1) It is an intangible asset.

2) It is not a fictitious asset.

3) It is difficult to ascertain the exact value of goodwill.

4) It enhances the future as well as the present earning capacity of a business.

5) It helps in earning supernormal profits against the normal profits.

6) It assists the business to enjoy its upper hand over its counterparts.

Factors Affecting Goodwill

The following are the important factors that affect the goodwill of a firm.

1) Quality Products: If a company produces product of the best quality and in large scale, then automatically the company earns more goodwill.

2) Location: If a business islocated at easily reachable and convenient place, then more number of consumers will be attracted again and again which will lead to increase in sales and, therefore, the firm will earn higher goodwill.

3) Management: Efficient management leads to cost efficiency and increases productivity. If a firm’s management is efficient, then superior quality products can be produced at lower cost .These can be sold at lesser price. Superior quality at lower price enables a firm to earn higher goodwill.

4) Market Structure: If a firm is operating in a monopoly market with no close substitutes, then there will be more goodwill of the firm.

5) Economies of Scale: If a firm enjoys special advantages like, continuous supply of power, fuel and raw materials at a low price and produces quality product at a large scale, then the firm enjoys higher value of goodwill.

#### Question 3:

Explain various methods of valuation of goodwill.

The following are the various methods of valuation of goodwill.

1. Average Profit Method: Under this method, goodwill is calculated on the average basis of the profits of past few years. The formula for calculating goodwill is:

Goodwill = Average Profit × No. of Years Purchase

Number of Years Purchase implies number of years for which the firm expects to earn the same amount of profits.

Steps to Calculate Goodwill by Average Profit Method:

Step 1: Ascertain the total profit of past given years.

Step 2: Add all abnormal losses like, loss by fire, theft etc.

Step 4: Less all non-business incomes and all abnormal gains and incomes like, speculation, lottery etc.

Step 5: Less all normal expenses, if not deducted previously.

Step 6: Calculate Average Profit, by dividing the total profit ascertained in Step 5 by number of years.

Step 7: Multiply the Average Profit to the Number of Year’s Purchases to calculate the value of goodwill.

Example:

The profits for last 5 years are 1,00,000,   3,00,000,   (2,00,000),   5,00,000,   8,00,000.

Calculate goodwill on the basis of 4 years purchase

2. Weight Average Method: It is modified version of the Average Profit Method. Under this method, the weights are assigned for each year’s profit. Highest weights are assigned to the recent year’s profit and lower weights are assigned to the past year’s profits. The products of the profits and the weights are added and divided by the total weights to calculate Weighted Average Profits. The formula for calculating goodwill by this method is:

Steps to Calculate Goodwill by Weight Average Method:

Step 1: Assign highest weights to the recent year’s profit and lower weights to the past year’s profits, like 4,3,2,1.

Step 2: Multiply the weights with its corresponding year’s profits.

Step 3: Calculate the total of the products

Step 4: Divide the total of the product by the total of the eights in order to calculate Weighted Average Profit.

Step 5: Multiply the Weighted Average Profit by the number of years purchase.

For example:

The profits for the last 5 years are Rs 1,00,000,   Rs 3,00,000,   Rs (2,00,000),   Rs 5,00,000,   Rs 8,00,000.

Calculate goodwill on the basis of 4 years purchase

 Profit/Loss Rs Weights Product Rs 1,00,000 1 1,00,000 × 1 = 1,00,000 3,00,000 2 3,00,000 × 2 = 6,00,000 (2,00,000) 3 (2,00,000) × 3 = (6,00,000) 5,00,000 4 5,00,000 × 4  = 20,00,000 8,00,000 5 8,00,000× 5  = 40,00,000 Total 15 Rs 61,00,000

3. Super Profit Method: Under this method, goodwill is calculated on the basis of excess profit earned by a firm over the normal profit earned by its counterparts in the same industry. The excess profit over the normal profit is termed as Super Normal Profit.

Steps to Calculate Goodwill by Super Profit Method:

Step 1: Calculate Average Profit

Step 2: Calculate Average Capital Employed as:

Step 3: Calculate Normal Profit by the formula:

Step 4:  Calculate Super Normal Profit by the formula:

Super Normal Profit = Average Profit – Normal Profit

Step 5:  Multiply the Super Normal Profit by the Number of Years Purchase to calculate goodwill.

4. Capitalisation Method: Under this method, goodwill is calculated by the following two methods :

a) By capitalisation of Average Profit.

b) By capitalisation of Super Profit.

a) Capitalisation of Average Profit

Step 1: Calculate Average Profit

Step 2: Calculate Capitalised value of Average Profit by the following formula:

Step 3:  Ascertain Actual Capital Employed

Step 4:  Deduct Actual Capital Employed from Capitalised Average Profit to calculate goodwill.

Goodwill = Capitalised Average Profit – Actual Capital Employed

b) Capitalisation of Super Profit

Step 1: Calculate the Capital Employed

Step 2: Calculate Normal Profit by the following formula:

Step 3: Calculate Average Profit.

Step 4: Calculate Super Normal Profit by the following formula:

Super Normal Profit = Average Profit – Normal Profit

Step 5: Calculate goodwill by the following formula:

#### Question 4:

If it is agreed that the capital of all the partners be proportionate to the new profit sharing ratio, how will you work out the new capital of each partner? Give examples and state how necessary adjustments will be made.

When a new partner is admitted, sometimes it is agreed that the capital of all the partners should be proportionate to the new profit sharing ratio. The calculation of the new capital of each partner depends on the following situations:

1) When the capital of the new partner is given

2) When the total capital of the firm is given.

1) When the capital of the new partner is given

In this situation, the calculation of the new capital of all the partners involves the following steps:

Step 1: The total capital of the new firm is calculated on the basis of new partner’s capital.

Step 2: The new capital of each partner is calculated by dividing the total capital of the firm by their individual new profit share.

Step 3: After posting all adjustments and items in the Partners’ Capital Account, calculate credit minus debit side of the old Partners’ Capital Account.

Step 4: The new capital ascertained in the Step 2 is written as ‘Balance c/d’ on the credit side of the Partner’s Capital Account.

Step 5: If the amount ascertained in Step 2 (New capital) exceeds the capital amount ascertained in Step 3 (Old Capital), then it is termed as ‘Deficit’ and the difference amount is to be brought in by the old partners. On the contrast, if the amount ascertained in the Step 2 (New Capital) is lesser than the capital amount ascertained in the Step 3 (old Capital), then it is termed as ‘Surplus’ and the difference amount is returned to the old partners.

Let us understand the above steps with the help of an example.

A and B are partners sharing profit and loss equally. They agree to admit C for share in profit. C brings Rs 50,000 as capital. The old capitals of A and B are Rs 60,000 and Rs 40,000 respectively, at the time admission of C.

Step 1: The total capital of the new firm on the basis of C =

Step 2: A’s new capital =

B’s share in new firm =

Step 3:

 A B New Capital 50,000 50,000 Less: Existing Capital (60,000) (40,000) Withdrawal (deposit) 10,000 (10,000)

2) When the total capital of the new firm is given:

When the capital of new partner is not mentioned then his/her capital is ascertained on the proportionate basis of total capital of the firm. The amount ascertained is to be brought in by the new partner in the form of his/her portion of capital. In order to ascertain the proportionate capital of the new partner, the following steps are to be followed.

Step 1: Ascertain the total old capital of the old partners (after making all adjustments)

Step 2: Ascertain the total capital of the new firm by multiplying the total of old capitals of the old partners (ascertained in the Step 1) with reciprocal of total share of old partners. That is,

Step 3: Calculate New Capital of each partner on the basis of Total Capital ascertained in Step 2. That is, multiplying the Total Capital by the new profit sharing ratio individually for all the partners (including the new partner).

Let us understand the above steps with the help of an example.

X and Y are partners in a firm sharing profit and loss equally. They agree to admit Z for share in profit and decided to share future profit and loss equally. X’s capital is Rs 2,00,000 and Y’s capital is Rs 1,50,000. Z brings sufficient capital for his share in profit.

Step 1: Calculation of Total Capital of Old Partners (after all adjustments)

The total capital of the old partners = Rs 2,00,000 + Rs 1,50,000 = Rs 3,50,000

Step 2: Calculation of Total Capital of New Firm

Step 3: Calculation of New Capital of Each Partner

#### Question 5:

Explain how will you deal with goodwill when new partner is not in a position to bring his share of goodwill in cash.?

When the new partner is not in a position to bring his share of goodwill in cash, then goodwill account is adjusted through the old Partners’ Capital Account. New Partner’s Capital Account or Current Account is debited with his/her share of goodwill and the partners who sacrifice their share in favour of the new partner are credited in their sacrificing ratio. The following Journal entry is passed in the books of accounts.

 New Partner’s Capital A/c Dr. To Old Partners’ Capital A/c (New partner capital account is debited with his/her share of goodwill and sacrificing Partners’ Capital Account are credited in their sacrificing ratio)

NOTE: As per the Para 16 of Accounting Standard 10, goodwill is recorded in the books only when some consideration in money or money’s worth has been paid for it. This practice is mandatory to follow. In the case of admission, retirement, death or change in profit sharing ratio among existing partners, Goodwill Account cannot be raised as no consideration is paid for it.

#### Question 6:

Explain various methods for the treatment of goodwill on the admission of a new partner?

The methods for the treatment of goodwill on the admission of a new partner are given below.

2. Revaluation Method

It should be noted that before following any of the below mentioned methods of goodwill, if goodwill already appears in the old books (old Balance Sheet) of the firm, then first of all, this goodwill should be written off among all the old partners in their old profit sharing ratio. The following Journal entry is passed to distribute the goodwill.

 Old Partners’ Capital A/c Dr. To Goodwill A/c (Goodwill written off among the old partners in their old profit sharing ratio)

1. Premium Method- This method is used when a new partner pays his/her share of goodwill in cash. The following are the different situations under this method.

i) When the new partner privately pays his/her share of goodwill to the old partners.

In this case, there is no need to pass any Journal entry in the books of accounts as the goodwill is privately paid.

ii) When the new partner brings his/her share of goodwill in cash and the goodwill is retained in the business.

Accounting Entries

a)      For premium or goodwill brought in cash by the new partner

 Cash/Bank A/c Dr. To Premium for Goodwill A/c (Amount of goodwill brought in by the new partner)

b) For transferring of new partner’s goodwill among the old partners, i.e. if goodwill is retained in the business.

 Premium for Goodwill A/c Dr To Sacrificing Partners’ Capital A/c (Goodwill brought in by the new partner is distributed among the old partners in their sacrificing ratio)

c)  If the new partner’s share of goodwill is withdrawn by the old partner, then

 Sacrificing Partner’s Capital A/c Dr. To Cash A/c (Amount of goodwill withdrawn by the old partners)

iii) If the new partner partly brings his/her share of goodwill

a)      For bringing goodwill in cash

 Cash A/c Dr. To Premium for Goodwill A/c (Amount of goodwill brought in cash by the new partner)

b) For transferring of goodwill to the old partners

 Goodwill A/c Dr. (With the amount of goodwill brought in by the new partner) New Partner’s Capital A/c Dr. (With the amount of goodwill not brought in by the new partner) To Sacrificing Partners’ Capital A/c (Goodwill amount of the new partner distributed among the old partners in their sacrificing ratio)

2. Revaluation Method- When the new partner is not able to bring goodwill in cash at all.

 New Partner’s Capital A/c Dr. (With the whole amount of goodwill that is not brought in by the new partner) To Old Partners’ Capital A/c (Goodwill amount of the new partner distributed among the old partners in their sacrificing ratio)

NOTE: As per the Para 16 of Accounting Standard 10, goodwill is recorded in the books only when some consideration in money or money’s worth has been paid for it. This practice is mandatory to follow. In  case of admission, retirement, death or change in profit sharing ratio among existing partners, Goodwill Account cannot be raised as no consideration is paid for it.

#### Question 7:

How will you deal with the accumulated profit and losses and reserves on the admission of a new partner?

When a new partner is admitted in a partnership firm, then all past accumulated profits or losses and reserves are distributed among all the old partners in their old profit sharing ratio. This is because these profits and losses are attributable to the hard work and labours of the old partners and consequently, the old partners are liable to bear past losses or profits, if any. The new partner is not entitled for a share in these profits as he/she did not contribute anything for the past performance of the business.

Accounting Treatment of Accumulated Profits and Losses

i) For distributing accumulated profits and reserves

 Profit and Loss A/c Dr. General Reserve A/c Dr. Reserve Fund A/c Dr. Workmen’s Compensation Fund A/c Dr. Contingency Reserve A/c Dr. To Old Partners’ Capital A/c (Undistributed profits and reserves are distributed among old partners in their old profit sharing ratio)

ii) For distributing accumulated losses

 Old Partners’ Capital A/c Dr. To Profit and Loss (Debit balance) A/c To Deferred Advertisement Expenses A/c To Preliminary Expenses A/c (Undistributed losses are distributed among old partners in their old profit sharing ratio)

#### Question 8:

At what figures the value of assets and liabilities appear in the books of the firm after revaluation has been done? Show with the help of an imaginary balance sheet.

After revaluation has been done, the assets and liabilities appear at their current market values in the Balance Sheet of the reconstituted firm. This can be better explained with the help of the below explained example.

A and B shares profit and loss equally.

 Balance Sheet of A and B as on April 01, 2011 Liabilities Amount Rs Assets Amount Rs Sundry Creditors 1,00,000 Cash in Hand 8,000 Capital Accounts Cash at Bank 28,000 A 75,000 Debtors 40,000 B 75,000 1,50,000 Stock 36,000 Furniture 38,000 Plant and Machinery 1,00,000 2,50,000 2,50,000

#### Question 1:

A and B were partners in a firm sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 3:2. They admit C into the partnership with 1/6 share in the profits. Calculate the new profit sharing ratio?

 A : B Old Ratio 3 : 2 OR :

C admits for share of new profit in new firm.

Let new firm profit = 1

Remaining share of A and B in the new firm = 1 − C’s share

= 1 −

=

New Ratio = Old Ratio × Remaining Share of A and B

#### Question 2:

A, B, C were partners in a firm sharing profits in 3:2:1 ratio. They admitted D for 10% profits. Calculate the new profit sharing ratio?

D admits for share in the new firm

New Ratio = Old Ratio − Sacrificing Ratio

#### Question 4:

A, B and C are partners sharing profits in 2:2:1 ratio admitted D for 1/8 share which he acquired entirely from A. Calculate new profit sharing ratio?

D admits for share in new firm, which he takes from A.

Here only A will sacrifice.

New Ratio = Old Ratio − Sacrificing Ratio

#### Question 5:

P and Q are partners sharing profits in 2:1 ratio. They admitted R into partnership giving him 1/5 share which he acquired from P and Q in 1:2 ratio. Calculate new profit sharing ratio?

R admits for share in the new firm which he takes from from P and from Q.

P’s sacrifice = R’s share ×

Q’s sacrifice = R’s share ×

New Ratio = Old Ratio − Sacrificing Ratio

#### Question 6:

A, B and C are partners sharing profits in 3:2:2 ratio. They admitted D as a new partner for 1/5 share which he acquired from A, B and C in 2:2:1 ratio respectively. Calculate new profit sharing ratio?

D admits for share in the new firm which he takes in the ratio 2:2:1 from A, B and C.

A’s sacrifice = D’s share ×

B’s sacrifice = D’s share ×

C’s sacrifice = D’s share ×

New Ratio = Old Ratio − Sacrificing Ratio

#### Question 7:

A and B were partners in a firm sharing profits in 3:2 ratio. They admitted C for 3/7 share which he took 2/7 from A and 1/7 from B. Calculate new profit sharing ratio?

B’s sacrifice

New Ratio = Old Ratio − Sacrificing Ratio

#### Question 8:

A, B and C were partners in a firm sharing profits in 3:3:2 ratio. They admitted D as a new partner for 4/7 profit. D acquired his share 2/7 from A. 1/7 from B and 1/7 from C. Calculate new profit sharing ratio?

D admitted for share of profit in new firm.

D’s share = A’s sacrifice + B’s Sacrifice + C’s sacrifice

New Ratio = Old Ratio − Sacrificing Ratio

#### Question 9:

Radha and Rukmani are partners in a firm sharing profits in 3:2 ratio. They admitted Gopi as a new partner. Radha surrendered 1/3 of her share in favour of Gopi and Rukmani surrendered 1/4 of her share in favour of Gopi. Calculate new profit sharing ratio?

Radha surrendered in favour of Gopi = of his share

Rukmani surrendered in favour of Gopi = of his share

Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio × Surrender Ratio

Rukmani =

New Ratio = Old Ratio − Sacrificing Ratio

Rukmani =

Gopi’s Share = Radha’s Sacrificing Ratio + Rukmani’s Sacrificing Ratio

#### Question 10:

Singh, Gupta and Khan are partners in a firm sharing profits in 3:2:3 ratio. They admitted Jain as a new partner. Singh surrendered 1/3 of his share in favour of Jain: Gupta surrendered 1/4 of his share in favour of Jain and Khan surrendered 1/5 in favour of Jain. Calculate new profit sharing ratio?

#### Question 11:

Sandeep and Navdeep are partners in a firm sharing profits in 5:3 ratio. They admit C into the firm and the new profit sharing ratio was agreed at 4:2:1. Calculate the sacrificing ratio?

Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio − New Ratio

Note: As solution sacrificing ratio is 3:5,. However answer given the book is different.

#### Question 12:

Rao and Swami are partners in a firm sharing profits and losses in 3:2 ratio. They admit Ravi as a new partner for 1/8 share in the profits. The new profit sharing ratio between Rao and Swami is 4:3. Calculate new profit sharing ratio and sacrificing ratio?

Ravi admits for share of profit in the new firm.

Let the New Firm Profit = 1

Combined share of Rao and Swami in the new firm

= 1 − Ravi’s share of profit

= 1 −

New Ratio = Combined Share of Rao and Swami × Proportion of Rao and Swami in the combined share

4:3:1

Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio − New Ratio

#### Question 13:

Compute the value of goodwill on the basis of four years’ purchase of the average profits based on the last five years? The profits for the last five years were as follows:

 Rs 2013 40,000 2014 50,000 2015 60,000 2016 50,000 2017 60,000

Average Profit =

 Year Profit 2013 40,000 2014 50,000 2015 60,000 2016 50,000 2017 60,000 Sum of 5 years profit 2,60,000

Average Profit =  = 52,000

Goodwill = Average Profit × Number of Year’s Purchases = 52,000 × 4 = Rs 2,08,000

#### Question 14:

Capital employed in a business is Rs. 2,00,000. The normal rate of return on capital employed is 15%. During the year 2015 the firm earned a profit of Rs. 48,000. Calculate goodwill on the basis of 3 years purchase of super profit?

Capital Employed = Rs 2,00,000

Actual Profit = 48,000

Normal Rate of Return = 15%

Normal Profit = Capital Employed ×

= Rs 30,000

Super profit = Actual Profit − Normal Profit

= 48,000 − 30,000

= Rs 18,000

Goodwill = Super Profit × Number of Years Purchase

= 18,000 × 3

= Rs 54,000

#### Question 15:

The books of Ram and Bharat showed that the capital employed on 31.12.2016 was Rs. 5,00,000 and the profits for the last 5 years : 2015 Rs. 40,000; 2014 Rs. 50,000; 2013 Rs. 55,000; 2012 Rs. 70,000 and 2011 Rs. 85,000. Calculate the value of goodwill on the basis of 3 years purchase of the average super profits of the last 5 years assuming that the normal rate of return is 10%?

Average Actual Profit =

 Year Profit 2015 40,000 2014 50,000 2013 55,000 2012 70,000 2011 85,000 Sum of 5 years profit 3,00,000

Average Actual Profit = = Rs 60,000

Normal Profit = Capital Employed ×

= Rs 50,000

Average Super Profit = Average Actual Profit – Normal Profit

= 60,000 – 50,000

= Rs 10,000

Goodwill = Average Super Profit × Number of year purchase

= 10,000 × 3

= Rs 30,000

#### Question 16:

Rajan and Rajani are partners in a firm. Their capitals were Rajan Rs. 3,00,000; Rajani Rs. 2,00,000. During the year 2015 the firm earned a profit of Rs. 1,50,000. Calculate the value of goodwill of the firm assuming that the normal rate of return is 20%?

 Rajan’s Capital 3,00,000 Rajni’s Capital 2,00,000 Total Capital Employed 5,00,000

Normal Rate of Return = 20%

Capitalised Valued = Actual Profit ×

= 1,50,000 ×

= Rs 7,50,000

Goodwill = Capitalised Value − Capital Employed

= 7,50,000 − 5,00,000

= Rs 2,50,000

Alternative Method

Normal Profit = Capital Employed ×

= 5,00,000 ×

= Rs 1,00,000

Super profit = Actual Profit − Normal Profit

= 1,50,000 − 1,00,000

= Rs 50,000

Goodwill = Super Profit ×

= 50,000 ×

= Rs 2,50,000

#### Question 17:

A business has earned average profits of Rs. 1,00,000 during the last few years. Find out the value of goodwill by capitalisation method, given that the assets of the business are Rs. 10,00,000 and its external liabilities are Rs. 1,80,000. The normal rate of return is 10%?

Capital Employed = Assets − External Liabilities

= 10,00,000 − 1,80,000

= Rs 8,20,000

Normal Profit = Capital Employed ×

= Rs 82,000

Super Profit = Actual Profit − Normal Profit

= 1,00,000 − 82,000

= Rs 18,000

Goodwill = Super Profit ×

= Rs 1,80,000

Alternative Method

Capitalised Value = Actual Profit ×

Capitalised value

= Rs 1,00,000

Goodwill = Capitalised Value − Capital Employed

= 10,00,000 − 8,20,000

= Rs 1,80,000
