Brown and Coss have been operating a tax accounting service as a partnership for five years.
Their current capital balances are $92,000 and $88,000, respectively, and they share profits in a 60:40 ratio. Because of the growth in their tax business, they decide that they need a new partner. Moore is admitted to the partnership, after which the partners agree to share profits 40% to Brown, 35% to Coss, and 25% to Moore.

Prepare the necessary journal entries to admit Moore in each of the following independent conditions. If the information is such that both the bonus and goodwill methods are appropriate, record the admission using both methods.
1. Moore invests $90,000 in cash and receives a one-third capital interest.
2. Moore invests $120,000 cash for a 45% capital interest. Total capital after his admission is to be $300,000.
3. Moore agrees to invest $120,000 cash for a one-third capital interest, but will not accept a capital credit for less than his investment.
4. Moore invests $40,000 cash for a one-fourth capital interest. The partners agree that as sets and the firm as a whole should not be revalued.
5. Moore invests $35,000 cash for a one-fifth capital interest. The partners agree that total capital after the admission of Moore should be $225,000.
6. Moore invests land in the partnership as a site for a new office building. The land, which originally cost Moore $90,000, now has a current market value of $150,000. Moore is ad mitted with a one-third capital interest.
7. Moore is admitted to the partnership by purchasing a 30% capital interest from each partner.
A payment of $35,000 is made outside the partnership and is split between Brown and Coss.
