Question 05 Chapter 3 of +2-A

5. Purav and Purvi are partners in firm sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 2 : 1. They decide to take Parv into a partnership for 1/4th share on 1st April 2019. For this purpose, goodwill
is to be valued at four times the average annual profit of the previous four or five years, whichever is higher. The agreed profits for goodwill purpose of the past five years are:

 Year 2018-19 2017-18 2016-17 2015-16 2014-15 Profits 8,00,000 15,00,000 18,00,000 4,00,000 (Loss) 13,00,000

The solution of Question 05 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Average Profit For 5 years’ = Total Profit for past given years Number of years
 Average Profit = 14,000+15,500+10,000+16,000+15,000 5

 = 70,500 5 = 14,100

 Average Profit For 4 years’ = 15,500+10,000+16,000+15,000 4

 = 56,500 4 = 14,125

Average Profit of four years is taken to compute the value of goodwill of the firm. This is because the Average Profit of four years is more than the Average Profit of five years.

Number of years’ purchase = 14

 Goodwill = Average Profit X Number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 14,125 X 4 Goodwill = 56,500
