Working Notes
i. Calculation of B’s share of goodwill
A, B and C are sharing profits in ratio 4/9 : 3/9 : 2/9
B retires from the firm. Remaining partners agreed to pay him ` 1,50,000
B’s capital after making necessary adjustments ` 1,39,200
Therefore, Hidden Goodwill is ` (1,50,000 –
1,39,200) i.e. ` 10,800
ii
Gaining Ratio
New
profit sharing ratio between A and B is 5:3
A's Gain=5/85/9=13/72
C's Gain=3/82/9=11/72
Gaining ratio
13:11
Thus,
B’s share of goodwill will be brought in by A and C in the gaining ratio 13:11
i.e.
A’s capital will be debited =10,800×13/24=5850
C’s capital will be debited
=10,800×11/24=4950

Working notes:
Kapil’s capital (after
adjustments of reserve and profit on revaluation) 
= 
`
3,50,000 
Less: Shivam and Deepak paid him capital in settlement of his claim 
= 
`
4,20,000 
Hidden Goodwill (Share of Kapil in Goodwill) 
= 
` 70,000 
Shivam and Deepak Pay in 3:2
Shivam = 70,000 × 3/5= 42,000
Deepak = 70,000 × 2/5= 28,000

Working Notes:
WN1:Calculation
of Gaining Ratio
M :N :O=3:2:1(Old ratio)
M :O =1:1(New ratio)
Gaining Ratio = New Ratio  Old Ratio
M's Gain =1/2−3/6=3−3/6=0
O's Gain=1/2−1/6=3−1/6=2/6
WN2: Calculation of Retiring Partner’s Share of Goodwill
N's share of goodwill=60,000×2/6=` 20,000
N's share of goodwill will be brought by O only.
Therefore, O's Capital A/c will be debited with ` 20,000

C's share of goodwill will be brought by B and D in their gaining ratio1:1
Therefore, B's Capital A/c will be debited with 60,000×1/2=` 30,000
