On 1.2.2017, Guru retired and the new profit sharing ratio decided between Kavi, Ravi and Kumar were 3:1:1. On Guru’s retirement, the goodwill of the firm was valued at Rs 3, 60,000.

#### Solution

 Journal Date Particulars L.F Dr. Rs Cr. Rs Kavi’s Capital A/c             Dr.        To Ravi’s Capital A/c        To Kumar’s Capital A/c        To Guru’s Capital A/c (Being new goodwill adjusted) 81,000 18,000 18,000 45,000

Working Note:

Gaining Ratio = New Ratio - Old Ratio

Kavi = 3/5 - 3/8

= (24 - 15)/40

= 9/40

Ravi = 1/5 - 2/8

= (8 - 10)/40

= 2/40 ("sacrificing")

Kumar = 1/5  2/8

= (8 - 10)/40

= -2/40 (sacrificing)

Goodwill Valued = 360000

kavi = Rs 360000 xx 9/40 = Rs  81000

Ravi = Rs 360000 xx 2/40 = Rs 18000

Kumar =  Rs 360000 xx 2/40 = Rs 18000

Guru = Rs 360000 xx 1/8 = Rs  45000
