Bhaskar and Pillai are partners sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 3 : 2. They admit Kanika into partnership for 1/4th share in profit. Kanika brings in her share of goodwill in cash. Goodwill for this purpose is to be calculated at two years' purchase of the average normal profit of past three years. Profits of the last three years ended 31st March, were:

2017 - Profit ₹ 50,000 (including profit on sale of assets ₹ 5,000).2018 - Loss ₹ 20,000 (including loss by fire ₹ 30,000).2019 - Profit ₹ 70,000 (including insurance claim received ₹ 18,000 and interest on investments and Dividend received ₹ 8,000). Calculate the value of goodwill. Also, calculate goodwill brought in by Kanika.

Normal Profits for the year ended 31st March,2017

=Total Profits-Profit on Sale of Assets

= Rs. ( 50,000 - 5,000 )

= Rs. 45,000

Normal Profits for the year ended 31st March, 2018

=(Loss by fire - Total Loss )

= Rs. (20,000 - 30,000)

= Rs. 10,000

Average Profit

= ("Normal Profits for the year ended 31st March 2017 to 31st March 2019")/3

= ([ 45,000 + 10,000 + 44,000]/3)

= Rs. 33,000

Goodwill = Average Profits of last years \times No. of years Purchase

Goodwill = Rs. 33,000
\times 2

= Rs. 66,000.

Now. Calculations for Kanika's Share of Goodwill

= Rs. ( 66,000
\times 1/4)
