Ch-2 Fundamentals of partnership and Goodwill


    1. Super Profit, Explanation: Goodwill is the capitalized value of super profits. To find out the super profits, we deducted normal profits from the actual average profits (average profits – normal profits). To find out the value of goodwill, super profit should be capitalised i.e. super profits × 100/Normal Rate of Return.
    1. C, Explanation: C is correct. Profit will be distributed in Equal ratio. When there is no partnership deed or partnership deed is prepared but it is silent on profit sharing ratio, in such a case rules of Partnership Act, 1932 will be applicable. According to which, profits or losses will be shared by the partners equally irrespective of their capitals.
    1. Interest on Bank Loan, Explanation: Interest on bank loan will be fixed by the bank and not by the partners or partnership deed. A partnership deed can show only those contents which are concerned with partners or firm. Interest on bank loan is a charge against the profit. It means it will be paid in all conditions whether there is profit or loss in the business.
    1. 1,200, Explanation: When rate of interest on drawings is fixed, interest will be calculated for the full year i.e. Interest on drawings = 20,000 × 6/100 = 1,200.
    1. Equal ratio irrespective of partners capitals.
      Explanation: When there is no Partnership deed or Partnership deed is prepared but it is silent on profit sharing ratio, in such a case rules of Partnership Act, 1932 will be applicable. According to which, profits or losses will be shared by the partners equally irrespective of their capitals.
  1. Calculation of Average period
    • In the begining of month = (12+1)/2=6.5
    • In the middle of month = (11.5+0.5)/2=6
    • In the end of month = (11+0)/2=5.5

    Calculation of Interest on drawings

    1. Interest on Drawing = amount ×rate/100 ×6.5/12 =Rs. 650
    2. Interest on drawing = amount × rate/100× 6/12 = Rs.600
    3. Interest on drawing = amount ×rate/100 ×5.5/12= Rs. 550
  2. According to AS-26, Goodwill should be recorded in the books only when some consideration in money or money’s worth has been paid for it. If no consideration is paid for it than no Goodwill Account is raised.
  3. When capitals are fluctuating interest on drawings will be recorded on the debit side of partners’ capital accounts. As in case of fluctuating capitals method only one capital account is made in which all entries related to appropriation of profit, introduction of capital and drawings etc. are passed.
  4. Goodwill is the excess amount paid for purchasing a running business as a whole, over the book values or over the computed value of all tangible assets purchased from that business. Normally, goodwill thus acquired is only of one type ( i.e. purchased), appearing in books of account and in financial statements.
  5. BasisAverage Profit MethodSuper Profit Method
    MeaningIt is average of the profits of past agreed years.It is the excess of average profit over normal profits
    Normal rate of returnNormal rate of return is not relevant in the calculation of average profit.Normal rate of return is considered while calculating the super profit.
  6. Sometimes after the final accounts of the firm have been closed, certain matters may have been omitted or wrongly done. In that case rectifying entry for such mistakes must be made in the partners’ capital or current accounts in the beginning of financial year.

    Working Note
    Interest on Capital
    Singh On 1,00,000 = 1,00,000×6100×6100= Rs 6,000 ; On 25,000 = 25,000 ×6100×612×6100×612 = Rs 750
    Total interest on Singh’s capital = 6,000 + 750 = Rs 6,750; Gupta On 50,000 = 50,000×6100×6100= Rs 3,000 ; On 10,000 = 10,000 ×6100×312×6100×312 = Rs 150
    Total interest on Gupta’s capital = 3,000 + 150 = Rs 3,150 Interest on capital is allowable only if there is enough profits to cover it up otherwise not as well as it should be cleared to all that partners shall not be entitled any interest on capital, unless specifically given or written in the partnership agreement. Interest on capital introduced by the partners is calculated on the basis of time of contribution and it should also be considered the introduction of fresh capital by any partner as well as drawings made by the partners. It is important to note here that, the interest on capital provided to a partner is a compensation given to him for his/her investment in the firm foregoing the alternative risk free/risky investment available with even higher return. Interest on capital is necessary to partners because they always not share the profit on the basis of capital contribution ratio rather sometime equally even through the capital contribution is unequal. So, it equalizes the weight to maintain a parity the interest on capital plays a vital role among partners.The values which the firm wants to communicate to the society are:Environment Protection By manufacturing low cost jute bags instead of plastic bags they are protecting the environment from getting polluted.Empathy By admitting Shakti as a partner, who is specially abled, firm has shown empathy and concern towards specially abled people.

  8. Interest on capital is always calculated on the basis of opening capital, and with respect to the period it has been used in the business. Simple formula used to be : Interest on capital=(Opening capital * rate*months)/1200 Interest on Capital Azad = 40,000 × 51005100 =Rs 2,000 Benny = 80,000 × 51005100 =Rs 4,000

    Working Notes:

    1. As capitals are fixed, therefore interest, salary, and share of profit will be transferred to partners’ current account.
    2. Calculation of interest on drawings
      L = 10,000×12100×1×12100×1 = Rs 1,200
      M = 12,000×12100×612×12100×612 = Rs 720
      N = 15,000×12100×312×12100×312 = Rs 450
    3. Interest on capital
      L = 4,00,000 ×6100×6100 = Rs 24,000
      M = 5,00,000×6100×6100= Rs 30,000
