Question 27 Chapter 3 of +2-A

27. A partnership firm earned net profits during the past three years as follows:

 Year Ended 31st March 2019 31st March 2018 31st March 2017 Profit/(Loss) 20,000 24,000 30,000

Capital investment in the firm throughout the above-mentioned period has been 4,00,000. Having regard to the risk involved, 15% is considered to be a fair return on the capital. The
remuneration of the partners during this period is estimated to be 1,00,000 p.a.
Calculate the 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 27 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

 Year Profit beforePartners’RemunerationA Partners’RemunerationD Actual ProfitafterRemuneration(C = A – B) 2017 1,70,000 1,00,000 70,000 2018 2,00,000 1,00,000 1,00,000 2019 2,30,000 1,00,000 1,30,000 Total 3,00,000

 Super Profit = Actual average Profit- Normal Profit Actual average Profit = Total Profit for past given years = Number of years = 3,00,000 3 = 1,00,000

 Normal Profit = Capital Employed X Normal Rate of Return 100
 = 4,00,000 X 15 100 = 60,000

 Super Profit = 1,00,000- 60,000 = 40,000

Number of years’ purchase = 2

 Goodwill = Super ProfitX number of years’ purchase Goodwill = 40,000 X 2 Goodwill = 80,000
