Adjustment of Accumulated Profit and Loss

If there are any accumulated profits or losses appearing in the books of the old firm at the time of admission of a new partner, then these are distributed among the old partners in their old profit sharing ratio. Such accumulated profits or losses are generally in the form of reserves such as Reserve Fund, General Reserve, Profit and Loss Account, Investment Fluctuation Reserves, Workmen’s Compensation Reserves, etc. The new partner is not entitled to any share of such accumulated profits as all these reserves and losses are accrued to the hard work and past efforts of the old partners.
