The profit for 2014-15, Rs.20,000 (including insurance claim received of Rs.40,000). The loss for 2015-16 Rs.8,000(including voluntary retirement compensation paid Rs.1,10,000). The profit for 2016-17 Rs.1,05,000 (including a profit of Rs.25,000 on the sale of a fixed asset. Calculate the value of goodwill.

### The solution of Question 05 Chapter 3 of +2 Part-1: –

 Average Profit = Total Profit for past given years Number of years = (-20,000) + 1,02,000 + 80,000 3 = 1,62,000 3 = 54,000

 Number of years’ purchase = 2 Goodwill = Average Profit X Number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 54,000 X 2 Goodwill = 1,08,000

Working Note : –

*1 Calculation of Profits of last three years

 Adjusted Profit for the year 2013 = Total Profit −Abnormal Gain = 20,000 -40,000 = -20,000

 Adjusted Profit for the year 2014 = Total Profit +Abnormal Loss = (-8,000) +1,10,000 = 1,02,000

 Adjusted Profit for the year 2015 = Total Profit −Indirect Expenses = 1,05,000 -25,000 = 80,000
