Question 11: Ram, Manu and Hari were partners in a firm. Hari died on 30th June, 2021. His share of profit from the closure of the last accounting year till the date of death was to be calculated on the basis of the average of three completed financial years of profits before death. Profits for the years ended 31st March, 2019, 2020 and 2021 were ` 1,10,000; ` 1,20,000 and ` 1,30,000 respectively. Calculate Hari’s share of profit till the date of his death and pass necessary Journal entry for the same.

Total profit previous three years = 1,10,000 + 1,20,000  + 1,30,000 = 3,60,000

Average Profit previous three years = 3,60,000/3 = 1,20,000

Hari died on 30th June, 2021 after 3 month of beginning of the year (from 1 April 2021 to 30th June, 2021)

Hari’s share of Profit for 3 month = 1,20,000 × 3 × 1 ÷ 12 × 3 = ` 10,000

Working Notes:
WN1: Calculation of Y’s Share of Profit

Y's share=Firm's Profit×Y's Profit Share

Y's share=3,60,000×2/6=1,20,000 to be borne by gaining partners in gaining ratio

WN2: Calculation of Gaining Ratio

Gaining Ratio = New Ratio − Old Ratio

X's gain=3/5−3/6=3/30

Z's gain=2/5−1/6=7/30

Gaining Ratio=3:7

X's share=1,20,000×3/10=36,000

Z's share=1,20,000×7/10=84,000
