Question 12 Chapter 3 of +2-A

Geet and Meet are partners in a firm. They admit Jeet into a partnership for an equal share. It was agreed that goodwill will be valued at three years’ purchase of the average profit of the last five years. Profits for the last five years were:

 Year Ended 31st March 2015 31st March 2016 31st March 2017 31st March 2018 31st March 2019 Profit/(Loss) 90,000(Loss) 1,60,000 1,50,000 65,000 1,77,000

Books of Account of the firm revealed that:

1. The firm had gain profit of 50,000 from the sale of machinery sold in the year ended 31st March 2016. The gain profit was credited in the Profit and Loss Account.
2. There was an abnormal loss of 20,000 incurred in the year ended 31st March 2017 because of a machine becoming obsolete in an accident.
3. Overhauling cost of second-hand machinery purchased on 1st July 2017 amounting to 1,00,000 was debited to Repairs Account. Depreciation is charged @ 20% p.a. on Written Down Value Method.
Calculate the value of goodwill.

The solution of Question 12 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Average Profit = Total Profit for past given years Number of years
 Average Profit = (- 90,000)+1,10,000+1,70,000+1,50,000+1,60,000 5

 = 5,00,000 5 = 1,00,000

Number of years’ purchase = 3

 Goodwill = Average Profit X Number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 1,00,000 X 3 Goodwill = 3,00,000
