# Divya purchased Jyoti's business with effect from 1st April, 2019. Profits shown by Jyoti's business for the last three financial years were:2016-17: ₹1,00,000 (including an abnormal gain of ₹ 12,500).2017-18: ₹1,25,000 (after charging an abnormal loss of ₹ 25,000)2018-19: ₹1,12,500 (excluding ₹ 12,500 as insurance premium on firm's property - now to be insured).Calculate the value of firm's goodwill on the basis of two years' purchase of the average profit of the last three years

The information given in the question related to the past years' profits are to be adjusted for the non-operating or abnormal items before calculating the value of goodwill:

2016-17 = 100000 - 12500 (abnormal gain included is now removed) = 87500
2017-18 = 125000 + 25000 (abnormal loss charged now added) = 150000
2018-19 = 112500 - 12500 (insurance premium being an expense will now be reduced from the profits) = 100000

Average of Profits = (87500 + 150000 + 100000) / 3 = 112500

Goodwill = Average Profits x No. of years' purchase
= 112500 x 2
= 225000
