The solution of Question 48 Chapter 3 of +2-A

:

i) Calculation of Goodwill with average Profit
Number of years’ purchase= 3

 Goodwill = Average Profit*1 X Number of years’ purchase = 80,000 X 3 = 2,40,000

ii) At three years’ purchase of Super Profit.
Number of years’ purchase = 3

 Goodwill = Average Profit*1 X Number of years’ purchase = 20,000 X 3 = 60,000

iii) On the basis of Capitalisation of Super Profit.

 Goodwill = Super Profit *2 X 100 Normal Rate of Return
 = 20,000 X 100 10 = 2,00,000

iv) On the basis of Capitalisation of Average profit

 Capitalized value of Profit = Average Profit*1 X 100 Normal Rate of Return
 = 80,000 X 100 10 = 8,00,000

 Goodwill = Capitalized value of Profit – Actual Capital = 10,00,000 – 8,00,000 = 2,00,000

Working Notes : –

*1 Calculation of Adjusted Average Profit

 Average Profit = Adjusted Profit for past given years*1 Number of years
 = 2,00,000 + 1,80,000 + 1,60,000 3 = 5,40,000 3 = 1,80,000
 Adjusted Average Profit = Average Profit − Remuneration = 1,80,000 -1,00,000 = 80,000

*2 Calculation of Super Profit

 Capital Employed = Total Assets- Outsiders Liabilities = 4,00,000 -1,00,000 = 6,00,000
 Normal Profit = Capital Employed X Normal Rate of Return 100
 = 6,00,000 X 10 100 = 60,000

 Super Profit = Actual Profit*1 – Normal Profit = 80,000 – 60,000 = 20,000
