Question 3

X and Y are partners in a company. Their profit sharing ratio is 5:3. They admit Z into a partnership for 1/4th share. As between themselves, A and B decide to share profits equally in the future. C brings in ₹1,20,000 as his capital and ₹60,000 as premium. Calculate the sacrificing ratio and record the necessary journal entries on the assumption that the amount of premium brought in by C is retained in the business.

Solution:

 Journal Date Particulars L.F Dr. (₹) Cr. (₹) Bank A/c Dr. 1,80,000 To Z’s Capital A/c 1,20,000 To Premium for Goodwill A/c(The amount of goodwill/premium brought in cash) 60,000 The premium for Goodwill A/c Dr. 60,000 To X’s Capital A/c(Full amount of goodwill /premium transferred to X’s Capital A/c, as he alone has sacrificed 60,000

Calculation of new profit sharing ratio: C takes a 1/4th share out of 1.

Thus, the remaining profit is 3/4; This is divided equally between A and B

X’s new share = 3/4 x 1/2 = 3/8

Y’s new share = 3/4 x 1/2 = 3/8

Sacrificed made by X = 5/8 – 3/8 =2/8

Sacrificed made by Y = 3/8 – 3/8 =0

Hence, X alone has sacrificed and as such he alone will be entitled to the full amount of goodwill premium brought in by Z.
