Answer: 

Working Notes:

Calculation of goodwill:

Profits

2013-14 ₹3,50,000 – ₹56,250 = ₹2,93,750

2014-15 ₹4,75,000 – ₹56,250 = ₹4,18,750

2015-16 ₹6,70,000 – ₹56,250 = ₹6,13,750

2016-17 ₹7,45,000 – ₹56,250 – ₹15,000 = ₹6,73,750

Goodwill of the firm = (₹2,93,750 + ₹4,18,750 + ₹6,13, 750 + ₹6,73,750)/4 x 2 = ₹10,00,000

Raghav’s share of goodwill = 1⁄4 x ₹10,00,000 = ₹2,50,000

OR

Answer: Calculation of goodwill:

Total Profits of four years = ₹3,50,000 + ₹4,75,000 + ₹6,70,000 + ₹7,30,000 = ₹22,25,000

Average Profits = ₹ 5,56,250 – ₹ 56,250 = ₹ 5,00,000

Goodwill of the firm = ₹ 5,00,000 x 2 = ₹10,00,000

Raghav’s share of goodwill = 1⁄4 x ₹10,00,000 = ₹2,50,000

                                                     2015 − 16(₹)              2016 − 17(₹)

Inventory on 31st March              7,00,000                17,00,000

Revenue from operations           50,00,000               75,00,000

(Gross profit is 25% on cost of revenue from operations)

In the year 2015 − 16, inventory increased by 2,00,000.

Answer:

Inventory turnover ratio = Cost of Revenue from operations/Average inventory

2015-16 :

Cost of Revenue from operations= ₹50,00,000 -₹10,00,000 = ₹40,00,000

Average inventory = Opening inventory + Closing inventory /2

= (₹5,00,000 + ₹7,00,000)/2 

= ₹6,00,000

Inventory turnover ratio = ₹40,00,000/₹6,00,000 = 6.67 times

2016-17 :

Cost of Revenue from operations= ₹75,00,000 – ₹15,00,000 = ₹60,00,000

Average inventory = Opening inventory + Closing inventory/2

= (₹7,00,000 + ₹17,00,000)/2

= ₹12,00,000

Inventory turnover ratio = ₹60,00,000/₹12,00,000 = 5 times

Q.23. ABC Ltd. operates in two cities  Bengaluru and Mangaluru. House Rent Allowance for Bengaluru is ₹ 5,000 and for Mangaluru is ₹ 4,000. Dearness Allowance is calculated on Basic Pay as follows :

15% of Basic Pay if basic pay is less than ₹ 15,000.

10% of Basic Pay if basic pay is greater than ₹ 15,000.

Standard number of days are taken as 30 days in a month.

Calculate the amount using Excel :

(i) Gross Salary of Mr. Mahesh, who is working in Bengaluru. He has availed leave without pay for 3 days and his Basic Pay is ₹ 25,000.

(ii) Gross Salary of Mr. Ranjan, who is working in Mangaluru. Basic Pay of Mr. Ranjan is ₹ 14,000.

Answer: 

Gross salary of Mr. Mahesh and Ranjan

Basic pay of Mahesh Column A1 = 25000

Basic pay of Ranjan column A2 = 14000

Basic pay earned for Mahesh column B1 = A1* 27/30 = 22500

Basic pay earned for Ranjan column B2 = A2 = 14000

HRA for Mahesh Column C1 = 5000

HRA for Ranjan Column C2 = 4000

DA for Mahesh Column D1 = IF (A1>15000, 10/100*B1, 15/100*B1)

DA for Ranjan Column D2 = IF (A2 > 15000, 10/100*B2, 5/100*B2)

D1 = 2250

D2 = 2100

Gross salary for Mahesh = Column E1 = SUM (B1,C1,D1)

Gross salary for Ranjan = Column E2 = SUM (B2,C2,D2)

Mr. Mahesh’s Salary E1 = 22500 + 5000 + 2250 = ₹29750

Mr. Ranjan’s Salary E2 = 14000 + 4000 + 2100 = ₹20100
