Change in profit sharing ratio

When there is a change in profit sharing ratio, it means that some of the partners will get higher profits based on the new ratios in the future while others will loose or will get lower profits.

Those who will get higher  profits therefore need to pay for the higher profits whereas those who will get lower profits thus need to be compensated for the reduction in their profit share.

To achieve this objective, goodwill is normally introduced in the accounts by crediting the partners capital accounts according to their old profit sharing ratio (PSR) and written off again by debiting the partners capital accounts according to their new PSR.
