Question 08 Chapter 3 of +2-A

8. Abhay, Babu and Charu are partners sharing profits and losses equally. They agree to admit Daman for an equal share of profit. For this purpose, the value of goodwill is to be calculated on
the basis of four years’ purchase of the average profit of the last five years. These profits for the year ended 31st March were:

 Year 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 Profit/(Loss) 1,50,000 3,50,000 5,00,000 7,10,000 (5,90,000)

On 1st April 2018, a car costing 1,00,000 was purchased and debited to Travelling Expenses Account, on which depreciation is to be charged @ 25%. The interest of 10,000 on Non-trade Investments is a credit to income for the year ended 31st March 2018 and 2019. Calculate the value of goodwill after adjusting the above.

The solution of Question 08 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Average Profit = Total Profit for past given years Number of years
 Average Profit = 1,50,000+3,50,000+5,00,000+7,75,000+(-6,00,000) 5

 = 11,75,000 5 = 2,35,000

Number of years’ purchase = 4

 Goodwill = Average Profit X Number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 2,35,000 X 4 Goodwill = 9,40,000

Working Note: –

 Adjusted profit for the year 31st March 2018: = Total Profit + Purchase of car wrongly debited – Dep. On Car – Interest on Non Traded investment = 7,10,000 + 1,00,000 – 25,000 – 10,000 = 7,75,000 Adjusted profit for the year 31st March 2019: = Total Profit/(loss) – Interest on Non Traded investment = (-5,90,000) – 10,000 = (-6,00,000 )
