      You can’t. You can watch it free as often as you need. You can pause it and go have your dinner, watch television or go out with friends. But you can’t download it – it’s the only way we can continue to provide a free service.

      Sorry :-(

    My first visit post exams and the first thing i want to do is to say a BIG THANK YOU! Failed two times and didn’t attend the exam once due to fear. Then i came here, followed only your lectures this time and passed F7. Thank you mike :)

    1) If company “A” holds 33% shares in another company “B”, and the other 67% shares are spread over different shareholders and no one share holder has major stake in the company “B”. Will Company “A” make a consolidated financial statement?

    2) If Company “C” owns 30% stake in company “D” and a subsidiaries of Company “C” owns another 25% in company “D”. Will Company C prepare consolidated financial statements?

      In answer to your second question, yes, without doubt. Because company C owns 30% and controls another 25% giving total control. Ah! But what if the subsidiaries don’t vote in the way that company C wants them to? Well in a very short period of time the company C directors will find themselves jobless!

      Now, your first question! It really all depends upon on how well spread the remaining 67% is. If the next biggest shareholder has just 0.0000001% of company B shares / votes, then it would appear that company A has effective control. But if the next biggest shareholder has, say, 30% of company B’s shares / votes, then it would seem likely that company A does not have effective control

      Do you see trouble ahead? I do, for sure! Auditors claiming that the investee should be consolidated under the principles of effective control whereas directors of company A resisting denying effective control! Watch this space – it could be fun!!!

        At the end of the days , if the auditor says something, the company will have to follow them i guess.

        Thanks for clearing my doubts so fast :)

        Well, it’s not quite as easy as that! but there must be (and I’ve never experienced this) many heated discussions within the confines of the board room where auditors are claiming one thing and the directors are claiming the opposite.

    Hello Sir,

    I am planning to take f7 & f9 exam in June 2014. I am fully depends on your class and lectures. I am currently working so getting very less time to study, I hope your full support.

    Whether it is necessary to read the first five chapters before going to your classes.

    Thank you for the reply. I did not ask anything just an email from ACCA the also mention about the professional ethic module that I have to do. Does this mean I have to do all the four papers in one sitting or I can choose to do two per sitting?

      You don’t HAVE to do anything – literally, nothing.

      If you want to sit / attempt P1 in June, you will have to enter for all four F7, F8, F9 and P1.

      If you don’t want to attempt P1 in June, then enter 1, 2 or 3 F papers.

      The Ethics module has to be completed before you can become an affiliate. So even though you may have successfully got through all 14 F and P papers, you still have to complete the Ethics module.

      But you can attempt this at any time over however many hours / days / weeks that you want. There is no concept of pass / fail …. it’s just a question of having to have completed it before you can become an affiliate.

      My personal suggestion is that you should attempt it as part of your preparation for the P1 exam.

      Hope that helps

      Did you ask ACCA or did they just write to you with the information?

      Without the benefit of knowing any more about this, you are in fact eligible to enter for ONE of P1, P2 or P3 together with the 3 F level papers that are still outstanding

      Strange that ACCA should have written it and that they have specified P1 when in fact it could be any of those first 3 P papers

      Hi, I cannot guarantee that you will pass by just using the lectures. In fact, it’s a good chance that you won’t. What you MUST have available and be constantly using is a revision kit containing past exam questions and answers

      That revision kit will give you the opportunity to practice what you should have learned from the lectures.

      Do you need to attend college? That depends on many things including your own abilities, motivation, time available, resources available.

      Let me put it this way, there have been in the last 5 years many students who have passed F7 without having attended college

      Really, the choice is yours. The lectures are exactly as I give them in a college situation – the only thing that’s missing is my actual physical presence

    Although i am very grateful to O/Tuition for these lectures, i have to say this is the worst lecturer i have come across.

    Wheres the explaining ? I might as well be reading out of the text book. He doesnt make this very interesting, i think i would fall asleep in this lecture. And he talks like a news reporter……, quite monotone…..

    Rant over.

    Thanks anyway

    Does someone have a link to the relevant course notes used in this lecture? The only ones I could find are entitled F7_June2012, but it doesn’t seem to correspond exactly to this lecture, making it slightly difficult to follow.
