Working Notes:

WN 1 Calculation of Gaining Ratio

Old Ratio (X, Y and Z) = 2 : 2 : 1

Y retires from the firm.

∴Gaining Ratio = 2 : 1

WN 2 Adjustment of Goodwill

Goodwill of the firm = ` 70,000

Y’s Share of Goodwill = 70,000×2/5=28,000

This share of goodwill is to be distributed between X and Z in their gaining ratio (i.e. 2 : 1).

X‘s share= 28,000×2/3=18,667

Z‘s share= 28,000×1/3=9,333

WN1: Calculation of Goodwill

Goodwill=Average Profits×Number of Years’ Purchase

Average Profits=Total ProfitsNumber of Years=1,00,000+1,30,000−20,000/3=2,10,000/3=` 70,000

Goodwill=70,000×2=` 1,40,000

Kanika’s share=1,40,000×2/4=70,000 (to be borne by gaining partners in gaining ratio)

Note: Since no information is given about the share of gain, it is assumed that the old partners are gaining in their old profit sharing ratio.

Working Notes:

WN1: Calculation of G’s Share of Goodwill

G’s share=Firm’s Goodwill×G’s Profit Share

G’s share=90,000×5/10=45,000 (to be borne by gaining partners in gaining ratio)

WN2: Calculation of Gaining Ratio
Gaining Ratio = New Ratio − Old Ratio
N’s gain=2/5−2/10=2/10

S’s gain=3/5−3/10=3/10Gaining Ratio=2:3

N’s share=45,000×2/5=18,000

S’s share=45,000×3/5=27,000

WN2: Calculation of Excess/Deficit Provision for Doubtful Debts

Required Provision @5%=1,35,000−6,000×5100=6,450

Existing Provision after writing bad-debts= 9,000

Excess Provision to be written back=2,550 9,000−6,450

WN3: Calculation of G’s Loan Balance
Amount due to G = Opening Capital + Credits – Debits

= 4,50,000 + (45,000 + 45,000) – (37,500 + 81,225)
= ` 4,21,275

Working notes;

Old ratio of Ashok : Bhaskar : chaman=1/3:1/2:1/6




New ratio of Ashok and Bhaskar= 3:2

Gaining ratio= New ratio – old ratio

Ashok = 3/5-2/6=18-10/30=8/30

Bhaskar= 2/5-3/6=12-15/30= -3/30

Goodwill of firm= 2,40,000

Bhaskar will get =2,40,000×3/30=24,000

Chaman’s share of goodwill = 2,40,000×1/6=40,000

Ashok will give Bhaskar and  chaman 24,000, 40,000 respectively.
