Question 23 Chapter 3 of +2-A

23. The total capital of the firm of Sakshi, Mehak and Megha is 1,00,000 and the market rate of interest is 15%. The net profits for the last 3 years were 30,000; 36,000 and 42,000. Goodwill is to be valued at 2 years’ purchase of the last 3 years’ super-profits. Calculate the goodwill of the firm.

The solution of Question 23 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Super Profit = Actual average Profit- Normal Profit

 Normal Profit = Total Profit for past given years Number of years
 = 30,000+ 36,000+ 42,000 3 = 1,08,000 3 = 36,000

 Normal Profit = Capital Employed X Normal Rate of Return 100
 = 1,00,000 X 15 100 = 15,000 Super Profit = 36,000 – 15,000 = 21,000

Number of years’ purchase = 2

 Goodwill = Super Profit X number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 21,000 X 3 Goodwill = 42,000
