Q1. A, B and C are partners sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 5:3:2. C retired and his capital balance after adjustments regarding reserves, accumulated profits/ losses and gain/loss on revaluation was `2,50,000. C was paid `3,00,000 in full settlement. Afterwards D was admitted for 1/4th share. Calculate the amount of goodwill premium brought by D.

Sol: Goodwill share of C= `3,00,000-`2,50,000= `50,000
Firm’s Goodwill = 50,000x10/2= `2,50,000
D’s share in Goodwill= `2,50,000x1/4= `62,500

Q2. A and B were partners in a firm. They admitted C as a new partner for 20% share in the profits. After all adjustments regarding general reserve, goodwill, gain or loss on revaluation, the balances in capital accounts of A and B were `3,85,000 and `4,15,000 respectively. C brought proportionate capital so as to give him 20% share in the profits. Calculate the amount of capital to be brought by C.

Sol: Combined capital of A and B = `3,85,000+`4,15,000= `8,00,000
C’s share=1/5th of total capital
Remaining share= 1-1/5 =4/5
4/5= `8,00,000
C’s capital= `8,00,000x5/4x1/5= `2,00,000

Q3. A and B are partners. The net divisible profit as per Profit and Loss Appropriation A/c is `2,50,000. The total interest on partner’s drawing is `4,000. A’s salary is `4,000 per quarter and B’s salary is `40,000 per annum. Calculate the net profit/loss earned during this year.

Amount paid for 5,000 Debentures=4,75,000+15,000= `4,90,000
The nominal value of debentures to be redeemed/cancelled= `5,00,000
Amount of profit on redemption to be transferred to capital reserve= `5,00,000--`4,90,000= `10,000
