i Goodwill of the firm and B’s share of goodwill at the time of his death.
ii B’s share in the profit or loss of the firm till the date of his death.
iii Prepare B’s Capital Account at the time of his death to be presented to his Executors.

## The solution of Question 78 Chapter 6 of +2-A: –

(i) Calculation of Goodwill

Goodwill = Average Profit × Number of Year’s Purchase

 Average Profit = (-70,000 + 70,000 + 60,000 + 50,000 +40,000) 5 = Rs 30,000

∴ Goodwill = Average Profit × Number of Years’ Purchase
= 30,000 × 3 = Rs 90,000

Old Ratio B, C and D = 5 : 3 : 2
B Died
New Ratio C and D = 3 : 2

 B’s Share in Goodwill = 90,000 X 5 10 = Rs 45,000

This share of goodwill is to be distributed between C and D in their gaining ratio i.e. 3 : 2

 C’s Share in Goodwill = 45,000 X 3 5 = Rs 27,000
 D’s Share in Goodwill = 45,000 X 2 5 = Rs 18,000

(ii) Calculation of B’s Share of Profit or Loss

Loss for the Year 2008 = Rs 70,000

 Sunil’s share of Profit = 70,000 X 5 X 3 10 12 = Rs 8,750

 B’s Capital Account Particular Amount Particular Amount To Profit and Loss A/c 35,000 By Balance b/d 40,000 To Profit and Loss Suspense A/c 8,750 By General Reserve 35,000 By C’s Capital A/c Goodwill 27,000 To B’s Executor’s A/c 76,250 By D’s Capital A/c Goodwill 18,000 1,20,000 1,20,000
