Calculation of Value of hidden goodwill:                                                                      
Capital brought by Chetan for 1/4th share = 200000
Capitalised value of share capital= 200000*4/1=800000
Combined Share capital of Abhay and Beena = Total assets – outsider’s liability
= 5,40,000-1,00,000= 4,40,000
Actual share capital = 4,40,000 + 200000 = 6,40,000
Hidden Good will= Capitalised value of share capital – actual share capital =
8,00,000- 6,40,000 = 1,40,000
Chetan’s share of goodwill = 1,40,000* 1 / 4 =  Rs 40,000.
