Calculation of new profit sharing ratio:
Old profit sharing ratio = 3:2
Vaishali is admitted for 1/4th share.
Hence profit share available to old partners are 1-1/4=3/4
Charu’s new profit share= 3/5*3/4=9/20
Harsha’s new profit share = 2/5*3/4=6/20
Hence new profit sharing ratio= 9:6:5
Calculation of sacrificing ratio:
Old Ratio= 3:2
Hence sacrificing ratio= old ratio – new ratio
Sacrificing ratio= 3:2
Distribution of goodwill:
Goodwill brought in =Rs 4,000
Charu’s share =4,000*3/5=2,400 Rs
Harsha’s share = 4000*2/5=1600 Rs
Adjustment of Capital:
Total capital of the firm = Capitalising Vaishali’s capital
=20,000*4/1 = Rs 80,000
New profit sharing Ratio = 9:6:5
Charu’s new capital =80000*9/20=36,000 Rs
Harsha’s new capital = 80,000*6/20= 24,000 Rs
Vaishali’s new capital = 20,000 Rs
