Question 22 Chapter 6 of +2-A

22. A, B, and C were partners in a firm sharing profits in the ratio of 6: 5: 4. Their capitals were A − 1,00,000; B − 80,000 and C − 60,000 respectively. On 1st April 2009, A retired from the firm and the new profit sharing ratio between B and C was decided as 1: 4. On A’s retirement, the goodwill of the firm was valued at 1,80,000. Showing your calculations clearly, pass the necessary Journal entry for the treatment of goodwill on A’s retirement.

The solution of Question 22 Chapter 6 of +2-A: –

Date Particulars
L.F. Debit Credit
  C’s Capital A/c Dr   96,000  
  To A’s Capital A/c       72,000
  To B’s Capital A/c       24,000
  (Being Adjustment of A′s and B′s share of goodwill)      
           

Working Note: –

i. Calculation of B’s share of goodwill

A :B :C = 6:5:4(Old ratio)
B :C=1:4 (New ratio)

ii Gaining Ratio

 

B’s Gain  = 1 5
5 15
         
  = 3 5
  15
         
  = 2    
  15    

 

C’s Gain = 4 4
5 15
         
  = 12 4
  15
         
  = 8    
  15    

 

A:C = 2: 8

Calculation of Retiring Partner’s Share of Goodwill

A’s share of goodwill = 1,80,000 X 6
15
         
  = Rs 72,000    

 

B’s share of goodwill = 1,80,000 X 2
15
         
  = Rs 24,000    

A’s and B’s share of goodwill be brought by C only
Therefore, C’s Capital A/c will be debited with 72,000+24,000 = Rs 96,000
