6 Methods of Valuation of Goodwill Average Profit MethodWeighted Average profit MethodSuper profit methodCapitalization of profit methodAnnuity Method
7 Average Profit MethodIn this method, past profits of a number of years are taken into consideration for calculating goodwill.Such profits are totaled up (amount of loss if any are deducted) and their average value is found out by dividing total profits of past few years.
8 Average Profit MethodAverage Profit = Total profits of past years less loss if anyNumber of Years
9 Weighted Average Profit Method This method is a modified version of the simple average method.Under this method, each year’s profit is multiplied by the respective number of weights i.e. 1,2,3,4 etc. in order to find out value of product and the total products is then divided by the total of weights in order to ascertain the weighted average profit.
10 Super Profit MethodUnder this method Goodwill is calculated on the basis of Super Profits i.e. the excess of actual profits over the average profits. For example if the normal rate of return in a particular type of business is 20% and your investment in the business is Rs.10 lakhs then your normal profits should be Rs.2 lakh. But if you earned a net profit of Rs. 2,30,000 then Rs.2,30,000 - Rs.2,00,000= Rs.30,000 are your super profits.
11 Super Profit MethodFor calculating Goodwill Super Profits are multiplied by the number of years of purchase.For calculating Goodwill:-i) Normal Profits = Capital Invested X Normal rate of return/100ii) Super Profits = Actual Profits - Normal Profitsiii) Goodwill = Super Profits x No. of years purchased
12 Calculation of Capital Employed Capital Employed= Fixed Assets+ Current Assets – All outside liabilities
13 Capitalization of Profit Method Under capitalization of profit method, capital value of business profit is to be found out.Capital value means to find out the capital needed for earning an annual/ average/ super profit and on the basis of this goodwill is valued.
14 Capitalization of Profit Method There are two ways of calculating Goodwill under this method:(i) Capitalisation of Average Profits Method(ii) Capitalisation of Super Profits Method
15 (i) Average Profits Method: Under this method we calculate the average profits and then assess the capital needed for earning such average profits on the basis of normal rate of return. Such capital is called capitalised value of average profits. The formula is:-Capitalised Value of Average Profits = Average Profits X (100 / Normal Rate of Return)Capital Employed = Assets - LiabilitiesGoodwill = Capitalised Value of Average Profits - Capital Employed
16 (ii) Capitalisation of Super Profits: As the name itself suggests this method tries to assess the capital needed for earning the super profit, This capital is known as goodwill.Goodwill = X Super ProfitNormal rate of return
17 Annuity MethodIf the present value of annuity is less than Re.1, then Goodwill= Super ProfitPresent Value of annuityIf the present value of annuity is less than Re.1then Goodwill= Super Profit X Present Value of annuity
