WN 1 Calculation of Interest on C’s Capital
Interest on Capital = `7500 xx 6/100 xx 3/12 = 112.50`
WN2 Calculation of C’s share of profits
Profit of last financial year (2013-14) = 12,000
C's share in profits = `12000 xx 1/4 xx 3/12 = 750`
WN 3 Adjustment of Goodwill
Average Profit = `(9000 + 10500 + 12000)/3 = 10500`
Goodwill of the firm = 10,500 x 2 = 21,000
C's Share of Goodwill = `21000 xx 1/4 = 5250`
A will pay = `5250 xx 2/3 = 3500`
B will Pay = `5250 xx 1/3 = 1750`
WN 4 Calculation of C’s Share in Reserve Fund
C's Share in Reserve Fund = `4800 xx 1/8 = 1200`
