Question 26 Chapter 3 of +2-A

26. A partnership firm earned net profits during the last three years ended 31st March, as follows:
2017 − 17,000; 2018 − 20,000; 2019 − 23,000.
The capital investment in the firm throughout the above-mentioned period has been 80,000. Having regard to the risk involved, 15% is considered to be a fair return on the capital. Calculate value of goodwill on the basis of two years’ purchase of average super profit earned during the above-mentioned three years.

The solution of Question 26 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Super Profit = Actual average Profit- Normal Profit Actual average Profit = Total Profit for past given years = Number of years = 17,000+20,000+23,000 3 = 60,000 3 = 20,000

 Normal Profit = Capital Employed X Normal Rate of Return 100
 = 80,000 X 15 100 = 12,000

 Super Profit = 20,000- 12,000 = 8,000

Number of years’ purchase = 2

 Goodwill = Super ProfitX number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 8,000X 2 Goodwill = 16,000
