Ch-3 Change in Profit sharing ratio of Partners


    1. Rs.40,000, Explanation: Follow these steps to calculate the value of goodwill:
      1. Calculation of Capital Employed : 2,40,000 – 80,000 = 1,60,000
      2. Normal Profit = 1,60,000 × 10/100 = 16,000
      3. Super Profit = 20,000 – 16,000 = 4,000
      4. Goodwill = 4,000 × 100/10 = 40,000
    1. Gaining partner, Explanation: The partner who is getting more because of change in profit sharing ratio is called a gainer partner. That is why gainer partner is debited and sacrificing partner is credited while adjustment is made for goodwill or reserves and profits etc.
    1. BK is the gainer partner, Explanation: Calculation of gain or sacrifice: Formula : Old Share – New Share
      AK = 2/4 – 3/6 = No Sacrifice/ No Gain
      BK = 1/4 – 2/6 = 1/12 Gain
      CK = 1/4 – 1/6 = 1/12 Sacrifice
    1. Profit, Explanation: Increase in assets will be recorded in the credit side of revaluation account and decrease in liabilities will also be recorded in the revaluation account credit side. In both cases, there will be increase in profit, hence, revaluation account will show profit.
    1. C, Explanation: Adjustment of amount shall be made as follows:
      1. Total Capital = 20,000 + 30,000 + 50,000 = 1,00,000
      2. Capitals before adjustments were : 50,000; 30,000 and 20,000 (5:3:2)
      3. After adjustment = Rs.20,000, 30000,and 50000 (2:3:5)
      4. C will bring amount = old capital 50,000 – New capital 20,000 = 30,000
    1. P gains 1/14th share and Q sacrifices 1/14th share
      Explanation: Calculation of gain or sacrifice:
      Formula: Old Share – New Share
      P = 1/2 – 4/7 = 1/14 Gain
      Q = 1/2 – 3/7 = 1/14 Sacrifice
  1. A firm can be reconstituted on the following occasions (any two)
    1. When there is a change in the profit-sharing ratio of existing partners
    2. Admission of a new partner
    3. Death of partner
    4. Amalgamation of two or more partnership firms
    5. Retirenment of existing partner
  2. A change in profit-sharing ratio among partners means sharing the profits or losses in a new ratio in place of the old ratio. It implies the purchase of share of profit by one partner from another partner. It is called reconstitution of the existing partnership firm.
  3. New Profit-Sharing Ratio is the ratio in which all the partners, including new or incoming partner, will share future profits and losses of the firm.
  4. Investment fluctuation reserve is a reserve set aside out of profit to meet fall in the market value of the investment.
  5. Calculation of gain or sacrifice due to the change in ratio:
    Sacrifice = Old Ratio – New Ratio
    A = 1/2 – 4/7 = (7 – 8)/14 = -1/14 (Gain)
    B = 1/2 – 3/7 = (7 – 6)/14 = 1/14 (Sacrifice)
  6. Adjusting Journal Entry
    Z’s Capital Account (7,600 ×× 1/10)Dr.760
    To X’s Capital Account760
    (Being revaluation of assets and liabilities adjusted)

    Working Note: Old Ratio of X, Y and Z = 5 : 3 : 2, and their New Ratio = 4 : 3 : 3
    X = 4/10 – 5/10 = -1/10 (Sacrifice)
    Y = 3/10 – 3/10 = 0
    Z= 3/10 – 2/10 = 1/10 (Gain)

    Khushbu’s Capital A/cDr32,000
    To Anant’s Capital A/c
    (Being the adjustment of goodwill among partners on the change in profit-sharing ratio)

    Working Note

    1. Calculation of Sacrifice/gain of each partner Due to Change in Profit Sharing ratio of Partners
      Sacrificing/(Gaining) Share = Old Share – New Share
      Anant’s Sacrific/(Gaun) =51013=151030=530=510−13=15−1030=530 Sacrifice
      Gulab’s Sacrific/Gain) =31013=91030=(130)=310−13=9−1030=(130)Gain
      Khushbu’s Sacrifice/(Gain) =21013=61030=(430)=210−13=6−1030=(430)Gain
    2. Calculation of Share of Goodwill
      Anant =2,40,000×530=Rs.40,000=2,40,000×530=Rs.40,000
      Gulab =2,40,000×130=Rs.8,000=2,40,000×130=Rs.8,000
      Khushbu =240,000×430=Rs.32,000=240,000×430=Rs.32,000
    3. Gulab and Khushbu have gained, so they will be debited by 8,000 and 32,000 respectively and Anant has sacrificed so he will be credited by 40,000

    Working notes:Calculation of partners’ gain or sacrifice
    Sacrificing Ratio = Old Ratio – New Ratio
    Ram’s gain/sacrifice =3613=1636−13=16 (sacrifice)
    Shyam’s gain/sacrifice = 261326−13 = Nil
    Hari’s gain/sacrifice = 1613=()1616−13=(−)16(gain) Note:

    1. When Revaluation account is prepared, assets and liabilities appear in the balance sheet of the reconstituted firm at their revised (changed) values.
    2. Reconstitution of the firm results in a change in the capital of partners and in the value of assets and amount of liabilities. This shall also require preparation of balance sheet of the new firm.
    3. Sacrifing ratio is the ratio in which one or more partners of the firm sacrifice their share of profits in favour of one or more partners of the firm.
