 Date Particulars L.F. Debit Credit A’s Capital A/c Dr 5,850 C’s Capital A/c Dr 4,950 To B’s Capital A/c 10,800 (Being Adjustment of B′s share of goodwill)

Working Note: –

#### i. Calculation of B’s share of goodwill

A B and C are sharing profits in ratio 4/9: 3/9: 2/9
B retires from the firm. Remaining partners agreed to pay him Rs 1,50,000
B’s capital after making necessary adjustments Rs 1,39,200
Therefore, Hidden Goodwill is Rs 1, 50, 000– 1, 39, 200 i.e. Rs 10,800

#### ii Gaining Ratio

New profit sharing ratio between A and B is 5:3

 A’s Gain = 5 – 4 8 9 = 45 – 32 72 = 13 72
 C’s Gain = 3 – 2 8 9 = 27 – 16 72 = 11 72

#### A:C = 13: 11

Thus, B’s share of goodwill will be brought in by A and C in the gaining ratio 13:11 i.e.

 A is debited with = 10,800 X 13 27 = Rs 5,850

 C is debited with = 10,800 X 11 27 = Rs 4,950
