(c) Rs 3,000 of the debtors proved bad. A provision of 5% was to be created on Sundry Debtors for doubtful debts.
(d) Goodwill of the firm was valued at Rs 45,000.
Prepare Revaluation Account, Partner’s Capital Accounts and Balance Sheet of the reconstituted firm. Identify the value being conveyed in the question.

Working Notes:

1) Calculation of Gauri’s Share of Goodwill
Value of Firm’s Goodwill = 45,000
Gauri’s share of goodwill = 45000* 1 / 3 = 15,000

2) Calculation of new profit sharing ratio:
Old Ratio = 2:1
Gauri is admitted for 1/3rd share
Sahaj’s new profit share = 2 / 3 * 2 / 3 = 4 / 9
Nimish’s new profit share = 2 / 3 * 1 / 3 = 2 / 9
Gauri’s profit share = 1 / 3 = 3 / 9
New ratio =4:2:3

3) Calculation of Gauri’s Capital:
Sahaj’s Capital         = 142433
Nimish’s Capital       =   91217
Capital for 2/3 Share = 233650
Total Capital= 233650 x 3/2
Gauri’s Capital = 233650 x 3/2 x 1/3 = 116825

The following are the values involved
a. Valuing friendship and helping friends
b. Sympathy and sensitivity towards differently abled individuals.
