Working Notes:
Calculation of Profit-Sharing Ratio

Old Ratio A, B and C = 3: 2: 1
B retires from the firm
∴ New Ratio A and C = 3: 1 and
Gaining Ratio = 3 : 1

Adjustment of Goodwill

Goodwill of the firm = Rs 22,000

B’s Share of Goodwill=22,000X2
 =Rs 7,333  

This share of goodwill is to be distributed between A and C in their gaining ratio i.e. 3: 1.

A ‘ share=7,333X3
 =Rs 5,500  


C ‘ share=7,333X1
 =Rs 1,833  


Adjustment of Partners’ Capital after B’s Retirement

Amount to be brought in by A and C=Cash to be paid to B + Minimum Balance of CashExisting Balance of Cash
 =48,200 + 10,00018,000
 =Rs 40,200  

Combined Capital of A and C after of all adjustments = 35,800 + 28,600 = Rs 64,400
∴ Total Capital of the Firm = Amount to be brought in by A and C + Combined Capital of A and C
= 40,200 + 64,400 = 1,04,600

A’s New Capital=1,04,600X3
 =Rs 78,450  


C ‘ share=1,04,600X1
 =Rs 26,150
