Question 32 Chapter 5 of +2-A

32. A and B are partners in a business sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 1/3rd and 2/3rd.  On 1st April, 2019, their capitals were 8,000 and 10,000 respectively. On that date, they admit C in partnership and give him 1/4th share in the future profits. C brings 8,000 as his capital and 6,000 as goodwill. The amount of goodwill is withdrawn by the old partners in cash. Draft the journal entries and show the Capital Accounts of all the Partners. Calculate proportion in which partners would share profits and losses in future.

The solution of Question 32 Chapter 6 of +2-A

 Date Particulars L.F. Debit Credit Cash A/c Dr 14,000 To C’s capital A/c 8,000 To Premium for Goodwill A/c 6,000 (Being C brought his share of capital and goodwill) Premium for Goodwill A/c Dr 6,000 To A’s Capital A/c 2,000 To B’s Capital A/c 4,000 (Being goodwill brought by C distributed among the old partners) A’s Capital A/c Dr 2,000 B’s Capital A/c Dr 4,000 To Cash A/c 6,000 (Being Amount of goodwill withdrawn by A and B)

 Particulars A B C Particular A B C To Cash A/c 2,000 4,000 – By Balance B/d 8,000 10,000 – By Cash A/c – – 8,000 By Premium for Goodwill A/c 2,000 4,000 – By Cash A/c (B. fig) – – 60,000 To Balance c/d *3 8,000 10,000 8,000 10,000 14,000 8,000 10,000 14,000 8,000

Working Note:-

 Old Ratio of A and B = 1 : 2 C is admitted for 1/4th share of profit

Let the total share of the business = 1
Remaining share of A and B after C’s Admission= Total Share – C’s Share

 Remaining share = 1 – 1 4
 = 4 – 1 4
 = 3 4

To Calculate to New Ratio distribute the remaining share in the old ratio of old partners’
New Ratio = Combined share of A and B  X Old Ratio

 A’s New Ratio = 3 X 1 4 3
 = 3 12

 B’s New Ratio = 3 – 2 4 3
 = 6 12

 C’s New Ratio = 1 – 3 4 3
 = 3 12

 New Profit sharing Ratio between A ,B and C = 3 : 6 : 3 = 1 : 2 : 1

 C’s Share of Goodwill = 6,000
 Sacrificing Ratio of X and Y = 3 : 2 sacrificing ratio is equal to old ratio because there no other condition for sacrificing old partners’ share. They will sacrifice in their old ratio

 A will get Share of Goodwill = C’s Goodwill  x Sacrifice share of A
 = 6,000 X 1 3 = 2,000

 B will get Share of Goodwill = C’s Goodwill  x Sacrifice share of B
 = 6,000 X 2 3 = 4,000
