# Calculate Goodwill of the Firm By: (I) Super Profit Method at Three Years' Purchase; and (Ii) Capitalisation of Super Profit Method. - Accountancy

Sum

Average profit of GS & Co. is ₹ 50,000 per year. Average capital employed in the business is ₹ 3,00,000. If the normal rate of return on capital employed is 10%, calculate goodwill of the firm by:
(i) Super Profit Method at three years' purchase; and
(ii) Capitalisation of Super Profit Method.

#### Solution

(i) Goodwill = Super Profit x No. of Years Purchase
= 20,000 x 3 = Rs. 60,000

(ii) Goodwill = Super Profit x 100/"Normal Rate of Return"
= 20,000 x 100/10 = Rs. 2,00,000

Working Notes:
WN1: Calculation of Super Profits
Average Profit = "Total Profits for past given years"/"No. of Years"

= Rs. 50,000

Normal Profit = Capital Employed x "Normal Rate of Return"/100

= 3,00,000 x 10/100 = Rs. 30,000

Super Profit = Average Profit - Normal Profit
= 50,000 - 30,000 = Rs. 20,000.
