Calculate value of goodwill on the basis of two years' purchase of average super profit earned during the above-mentioned three year

#### Solution

Goodwill = Super Profit x Number of Years' Purchase

Normal Profit = Capital Investment x "Normal Rate of return"/100

= 4,00,000 x 15/100 = Rs. 60,000.

 Year Profit before Partners’ Remuneration – Partners’ Remuneration = Actual Profit after Remuneration 2017 1,70,000 – 1,00,000 = 70,000 2018 2,00,000 – 1,00,000 = 1,00,000 2019 2,30,000 – 1,00,000 = 1,30,000

Average Actual Profit after Remuneration
= [ 70,000 + 1,00,000 + 1,30,000]/3

= [3,00,000]/3 = Rs. 1,00,000

Super Profit = Average Actual Profit after Remuneration - Normal Profit
= 1,00,000 - 60,000 = Rs. 40,000
Number of years’ purchase = 2
∴ Goodwill = Rs. 40,000 x 2 = Rs. 80,000.
