Question 17 Chapter 3 of +2-A

17. Dinesh and Mahesh are partners sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 3 : 2. They admit  Ramesh into partnership for 1/4th share in profits. Ramesh brings in his share of goodwill in cash. Goodwill for this purpose shall be calculated at two years’ purchase of the weighted average normal profit of past three years. Weights being assigned to each year 2017−1;
2018−2 and 2019−3. Profits of the last three years were:
2017 − Profit 50,000 including profits on sale of assets 5, 000.
2018 − Loss 20,000 including loss by fire 35, 000.
2019 − Profit 70,000 including insurance claim received 18,000 and interest on investments and dividend received 8, 000.
Calculate the value of goodwill. Also, calculate the goodwill brought in by Ramesh.

The solution of Question 17 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Year Adjusted ProfitA WeightD Product(E = C * D) 2017 45,000 1 45,000 2018 15,000 2 30,000 2019 44,000 3 1,32,000 Total 6 2,07,000

Note: – For calculation of Adjusted profit see working note at the end of the question.

 Average Profit = Total Profit for past given years Number of years

 = 2,07,000 6 = 34,500

Number of years’ purchase = 2

 Goodwill = Weighted Average Profit X Number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 35,000 X 3 Goodwill = 69,000

Working Note: –

 Adjusted profit for the year ended 31st March 2017 = Total Profit − Gain on Sale of Fixed Assets = 50,000 – 5,000 = 45,000 Adjusted profit for the year ended 31st March 2018 = Total Profit + Voluntary retirement Compensation paid = 35,000 – 20,000 = 15,000 Adjusted profit for the year ended 31st March 2019 = Total Profit + Loss by fire = 70,000 – 18,000 – 8,000) = 44,000
