Working notes

1. Jaya’s share of Goodwill = 50000 x \(\frac { 2 }{ 10 }\) = 10000

2. Calculation of gaining ratio

Gaining share = New share – old sharew

Aruns gaining share = \(\frac { 3 }{ 5 }\) – \(\frac { 5 }{ 10 }\) = \(\frac { 5 }{ 50 }\)

Hans gairnng share = \(\frac { 2 }{ 5 }\) – \(\frac { 3 }{ 10 }\) = \(\frac { 5 }{ 50 }\)

Hence, gaining ratio between Arun & Han is 5 : 5 ⇒ \(\frac { 5 }{ 10 }\) : \(\frac { 5 }{ 10 }\)

a. Paying off rralization expenses

Answer 12:

Answer 13:

Answer 14:

i. Calculation of new profit sharing ratio

Total share = 1 Radha share = \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\)

Remaining shares = 1 – \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac { 3 }{ 4 }\)

Shamnu’s new share = \(\frac { 3 }{ 4 }\) x \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac { 6 }{ 12 }\)

Viswan new share = \(\frac { 3 }{ 4 }\) x \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac { 3 }{ 12 }\)

Radha share = \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) x \(\frac { 3 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac { 3 }{ 12 }\)

ii. Required capital shamnu & Viswan

Radha’s capital [Who has \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) share in profits] is Rs.40000.

Viswan new share in profits \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) .

Hence his capital will be Rs. 80000.

Alternatively based on Radha’s capital of the firm works out at Rs. 16oooo (4/1 Rs.4000) Hence, based on theior shari in profits, the capital of Shamnu & Viswan will be.

Shamnus capital = \(\frac { 2 }{ 4 }\) of 160000 = 80000

Viswan capital = \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) of 160000=40000

Answer 15:

a. Goodwill = Average profits x No.of years purchase

= 30000 x 2 = 60000

60000 x \(\frac { 3 }{ 6 }\) = 30000

b. Revaluation Profit = 12000

X’s share = 12000 x \(\frac { 3 }{ 6 }\) = 6000

c. P/L Suspense a/c = 36000 x \(\frac { 6 }{ 12 }\) x \(\frac { 3 }{ 6 }\) = 9000

d. Interest on capital = Amount of capital x rule x period

= 6oooo x \(\frac { 12 }{ 100 }\) x \(\frac { 6 }{ 12 }\) = 3600

e. P/L credit Balance = 24000 x \(\frac { 3 }{ 6 }\) = 12000

Answer 16:

Income & Expenditure a/c for the year ended 31/03/17
