1 Partnership Accounting for goodwill

2 Goodwill Goodwill = Selling price as a going concern – Fair value of separate net assets Goodwill = Selling price – (Assets – Liabilities)

3 Goodwill  Buyer may be willing to pay more for a business as a going concern because of: - Good location - Good customer relations - Good reputation - Well-known products - Experienced and efficient employees and management team - Good relation with suppliers

4 Types of Goodwill  Inherent Goodwill  Purchased Goodwill

5 Inherent Goodwill Goodwill generated internally because of the above advantages Inherent goodwill is only an estimation. Therefore, it should not be brought into the books, and no accounting entry is required

6 Purchased Goodwill It is the goodwill generated during the acquisition of a business It is the difference between the selling price of a business as a going concern and the total value of its separable net assets It can be treated as an intangible fixed asset. Some companies may write it off immediately against reserves, or amortized through the profit and loss account over its useful economic life

7 Calculation of Goodwill  Subjective Judgement  Average Sales/Fees/Profits Method  Super Profit Method

8 Subject Judgement  Estimate the value of goodwill with reference to some intangible factors and according to their professional judgement

9 Average Sales/Fees/Profit Method  It can be calculated on gross average or weight average Goodwill = Average annual sales/fees/profits over a stated number of years * a factor The factor is usually stated as a certain number of years ’ purchase of the average sales/fees/profits

10 Example 1

11 YearAnnual Sales \$ 1995 100000 1996 200000 1997 300000 (a)Goodwill is valued at 3 years ’ purchase of the average annual sales of the past 3 years: Average annual sales = (\$100000+200000+300000 ) /3 = \$200000 Goodwill = \$200000 X3 = \$600000

12 (b) Goodwill is valued at the 3 years ’ purchase of the weighted average of the annual sales of the past 3 years Weighted average annual sales = (100000 x 1 + 200000 x 2 + 300000 x 3) 1+2+3 = 1400000 6 = 233333 (Calculation to the nearest dollar)

13 Super Profit Method  A business with goodwill is expected to be able to earn more profit than a business without goodwill  The extra profit earned is called the super profit Statement Calculating Super Profit Average annual net profitX Less: Reasonable remuneration to the owner X Reasonable return on the capital employed in the tangible assetsXX Super profitX

14 Example 2

15  Chan is leaving the partnership, and goodwill is to be revalued at 3 years ’ purchase of the super profit. The expected rate of return on net tangible assets is 10 %, after paying a management fee of \$500. The calculation of the super profit is to be based on the average profits of the last four years.  Net profit from 1994-1997 is \$5000, \$6500, \$6500, \$7000  Expected return on net tangible assets = Net tangible assets * 10%. Expected return is \$5000.

17 Accounting for Goodwill in Partnership

18 Accounting for goodwill in partnership  Only purchased goodwill is to be brought into the accounts. In sole trader ’ s accounts, goodwill is to be recognized and recorded in the books only if the business is acquired as a going concern  In partnerships, however, goodwill is brought into the books whenever there is a change in the partnership such as: Admission of a new partner Retirement of an old partner Change of the profit-sharing ratio

19  Each partner has a share of the profit-sharing ratio. At a change in the partnership, goodwill must be taken into account and shared among the existing partners, according to the existing profit-sharing ratio

20 Goodwill on the admission of a new partner

21 Goodwill on the admission of a new partner  The new partner is required to pay for his share of the tangible assets as well as the goodwill, according to the profit-sharing ratio  On the admission of a new partner, goodwill must be revalued  However, not all business keep a goodwill account in their books. Goodwill adjustments can be done: Goodwill account opened Goodwill account not opened

22 Goodwill account opened  The value of the goodwill will be credited to the old partners ’ capital accounts, which represents an increase in the resources they own, while the new partner will not have a share of the goodwill Dr Goodwill account Cr Capital account ( old partners only With the value of goodwill With their share of goodwill in old ratio Dr Goodwill account Cr Capital account ( old partner With the increase in the value of goodwill, share in the old ratio Dr Capital account (old partner) Cr Goodwill account With the decrease in the value of goodwill, share in the old artio

23 Goodwill account not opened  Goodwill is intangible in nature. It cannot be disposed of separately. Therefore, some businesses prefer not to maintain a goodwill account  The new partner may be required to pay extra cash, or have his capital balance reduced, for his share of goodwill Dr Goodwill account Cr Capital account (old partners only) Share goodwill among old partners in old profit-sharing ratio Dr Capital account ( all partners) Cr Goodwill account Written off goodwill among all partners in the new profit-sharing ratio

Goodwill on a change in the profit-sharing ratio

38 Goodwill on a change in the profit- sharing ratio  When there is a change in the profit-sharing ratio, the value of goodwill should also be re- assessed, so as to ascertain the amount of resources a partner has to give up ( in terms of a reduction in the relative capital balance) for the gain in his share of profits/loss.
