Illustration of Retirement of a partner

A, B and C have been trading as equal partners having capital contributions of £500,000 and £400,000 and £300,000 respectively as at 1st January 2005.  On the same date, B Deared to leave the partnership and A and C were to continue trading as partners sharing profits in the ratio of 2:1.  The total amounts due to B could not be paid immediately and thus the remaining partners agreed with B that they will pay 25% of the total due in cash and the balance will be left as a loan earning interest at a rate of 8% per annum. 

Meanwhile, goodwill has agreed at £180,000 and B had a credit balance on his current account of £40,000.  Goodwill was not to be retained in the books.
