L, M and O are partners sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 4 : 3 : 2. M retires and the goodwill is valued at ₹ 72,000. Calculate M's share of goodwill and pass the Journal entry for Goodwill. L and O decided to share the future profits and losses in the ratio of 5 : 3.

Working Note:

WN 1 Calculation of Gaining Ratio

Old Ratio (L, M and O) = 4 : 3 : 2

M retires from the firm.

New Ratio (L and O) = 5 : 3

Gaining Ratio = New Ratio − Old Ratio

L's share = 5/8 - 4/9 = (45-32)/72 = 13/72

O's share = 3/8 - 2/9 = (27-16)/72 = 11/72

∴ Gaining Ratio = 13 : 11

Goodwill of the firm = Rs 72,000

M's share of goodwill =72000 xx 3/9 = Rs 24000

This share of goodwill is to be debited to remaining Partners’ Capital Accounts in their gaining ratio (i.e. 13 : 11).

L is to be debited with 24,000 xx 13/24 =  "Rs" 13,000

O is to be debited with 24,000 xx 11/24 =  "Rs" 11,000
