VALUATION OF GOODWILL

AVERAGE PROFIT METHOD

GOODWILL = (AVERAGE PROFIT) (NUMBER OF YEARS PURCHASE)

WHERE : AVERAGE PROFIT = (Total Profit - Total loss)/Total No. of Years.
= (40000 + 60000 - 10000+ 50000 - 30000 + 80000)/6
= 190000/6
= Rs. 95000/3

GOOD WILL  = (95000/3) × 3

 GOODWILL  = Rs. 95000
