Question 11 Chapter 3 of +2-A

11. Sumit purchased Amit’s business on 1st April 2019. Goodwill was decided to be valued at two years’ purchase of the average normal profit of the last four years. The profits for the past four years were:

 Year Ended 31st March 2016 31st March 2017 31st March 2018 31st March 2019 Profit/(Loss) 80,000 1,45,000 1,60,000 2,00,000

Books of Account revealed that:

1. Abnormal loss of 20,000 was debited to Profit and Loss Account for the year ended 31st March 2016.
2. A fixed asset was sold in the year ended 31st March 2017 and gain profit of 25,000 was credited to Profit and Loss Account.
3. In the year ended 31st March 2018 assets of the firm were not insured due to oversight. Insurance premium not paid was 15,000.
Calculate the value of goodwill.

The solution of Question 11 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Average Profit = Total Profit for past given years Number of years
 Average Profit = 1,00,000+1,20,000+1,45,000+2,00,000 4

 = 5,65,000 4 = 1,41,250

Number of years’ purchase = 2

 Goodwill = Average Profit X Number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 1,41,250 X 2 Goodwill = 2,82,500

Working Note: –

 Adjusted profit for the year 31st March 2016: = Total Profit + Abnormal loss = 80,000 – 20,000 = 70,000 Adjusted profit for the year 31st March 2017: = Total Profit– Gain on Sale of Fixed Assets = 1,45,000 – 25,000 = 1,20,000 Adjusted profit for the year ended 31st March 2018 = Total Profit– Insurance premium not paid = 1,60,000 – 15,000 = 1,45,000
