Question 18 Chapter 3 of +2-A

18. Manbir and Nimrat are partners and they admit Anahat into partnership. It was agreed to value goodwill at three years’ purchase on Weighted Average Profit Method taking profits of the last five years. Weights assigned to each year as 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively to profits for the year ended 31st March 2015 to 2019. The profits for these years were: 70,000, 1,40,000, 1,00,000, 1,60,000 and 1,65,000 respectively. Scrutiny of books of account revealed the following information:
There was an abnormal loss of 20,000 in the year ended 31st March 2015.
There was an abnormal gain profit of 30,000 in the year ended 31st March 2016.
Closing Stock as on 31st March 2018 was overvalued by 10,000.
Calculate the value of goodwill.

The solution of Question 18 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Year Adjusted ProfitA WeightD Product(E = C * D) 31st March 2015 90,000 1 90,000 31st March 2016 1,10,000 2 2,20,000 31st March 2017 1,00,000 3 3,00,000 31st March,2018 1,50,000 4 6,00,000 31st March,2019 1,75,000 5 8,75,000 Total 15 20,85,000

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

 = 20,85,000 15 = 1,39,000

Number of years’ purchase = 3

 Goodwill = Weighted Average Profit X Number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 1,39,000 X 3 Goodwill = 4,17,000

Working Note: –

 Adjusted profit for the year ended 31st March 2015 = Total Profit + Abnormal loss = 70,000 + 20,000 = 90,000 Adjusted profit for the year ended 31st March 2016 = Total Profit – Abnormal gain = 1,40,000 – 30,000 = 1,10,000 Adjusted profit for the year ended 31st March 2018 = Total Profit – Overvalued Closing Stock = 1,60,000 – 10,000 = 1,50,000 Adjusted profit for the year ended 31st March 2019 = Total Profit + Overvalued Opening Stock = 1,65,000 – 10,000 = 1,75,000
