When two or more partner decides to change their capital according to their profit and loss ratio, then it is necessary to make capital adjustment in the form of cash.

For Example: Suppose one partner A who invested Rs. 100000 and other partner B invested Rs. 200000. If they decides to divide their capital in their profit sharing ratio and suppose their profit and loss sharing ratio is 1: 1 then we calculate total capital first that is Rs. 300000 and if we divide into ½ and ½ it will be 150000 and150000 to A and B so A will invest more 50000 Rupees and B will withdraw Rs. 50000 because his old capital excess Rs. 50000 from his new capital.

Then the journal entry will pass in the books of account

### Cash Account Credit

How can You calculate new and sacrifice ratio at the time of admission of new partner

Calculation of new and sacrifice ratio at the time of admission of new partner is very easy. If you want to calculate new profit sharing ratio, you should only calculate the difference between old and sacrifice ratio. Sacrifice ratio means total sacrifice of old partner for new partner.

It is given by old partner to new partner so if you want to calculate new profit sharing ratio, you just deduct this from old profit sharing ratio. But in different situation, partner can make condition at the time of admission, and fix his surrender share for new partner from his share then we first calculate sacrifice ratio and then calculate new profit sharing ratio.

For example Ram and sham are the two partners with profit sharing ratio are 3: 2. Sita enters in this partner ship. Both after that sita will take ¼ as new share, If agree that Ram will give 20% of his share and balance will give by Sham then we will calculate both new and sacrifice profit sharing ratio as bellow way.

Solution:

Ram's sacrifice = 3/5X20% = 0.12

Sham's sacrifice = ⅕-0.12 = 0.08

New profit share of Ram = ⅗-0.12 = 0.48

New profit share of Sham = ⅖ 0.08 = 0.32

New profit share of Sita = ⅕ = 0.20

### Adjustment of Capital at the Time of Admission of New Partner

When a new partner in partnership firm, he and other partner can agree for the capital adjustment on the basis of new profit sharing ratio and new partner's capital as base. In such condition, we first calculate total capital on the basis of new partner's capital.

Suppose Vinod is new partner in the firm of vijay and rajesh with 3: 2 and their capital are Rs. 10000 and Rs. 30000 but Vinod will ¼ share. He brings Rs. 10000 as capital. If all the partner agree to adjust their capital according to new profit sharing ratio, then calculate who invest more capital in cash form or who withdraw his excess capital Total capital = 10000 X 4/1 = 40000

Vijay's new capital = 40000 X 9/20 = 18000

Rajesh's new capital = 40000 X 4/20 = 8000

Vijay brings his external capital in cash because now he needs = 18000 − 10000 = 8000

But Rajesh withdraw his

excess capital = 30000 − 8000 = 22000

### Difference between Memorandum Revaluation Account and Revaluation Account

In the partnership accounting, at the time of retirement or admission, we either make revaluation account or make memorandum revaluation account but we should know the main difference between both

1. In memorandum revaluation account we make reciprocal entries in same account for covering double record system but in revaluation account we make only one side record.

2. In memorandum revaluation system of accounting, we can not change the value of assets or liabilities outside because all the procedure of double record is completed in memorandum revaluation account.

3. In memorandum revaluation account, first we divide profit or loss on revaluation is in old profit sharing ratio among all partners but after reciprocal entries recording we divide partner in new profit sharing ratio but in revaluation account we only divides in old profit sharing ratio

4. Making of memorandum revaluation account is not necessary but making of revaluation account is very necessary.

### Accounting Treatment at the Time of Retirement

In any partnership firm when a partner retires from a firm it is the duty of remaining partner to give him his share because he has to spend his remaining life. So at this time accounting treatment is very necessary in the books of firm.

### Tips for Easy Recording These Transactions

• Calculate the goodwill share of retiring partner and transfer to retiring partner's capital account credit side with his share

• Calculate joint life policy share and transfer to retiring partner's capital account

• Calculate General reserve share and transfer to retiring partner's capital account
