Chapter 10 Example 2. Would you be so kind as to explain why you have not accounted for dividends receivable from the subsidiary in W3 and W4. In example 1 you have.
May 30, 2016 at 8:11 am
OK, got it. Sorry 🙂
May 30, 2016 at 8:14 am
Sure? OK then 🙂
May 18, 2017 at 11:36 pm
Would you be so kind to explain the same to me ? I din get it.
May 19, 2016 at 11:20 pm
Its from BPP Study Text for exam up to June 2016, page 168 (the CSOPL & OCI)
Brodick Co and its Subsidiary Lamlash co.
May 20, 2016 at 5:53 am
I don’t have a BPP kit (nor a Kaplan kit either)
The question loses understandability when your post gets onto the page and I cannot see the connection between – well – any of the figures that you’ve given me
Do I assume that the first figure in each of the two lines is the dividend paid
and the second figure is retained earnings brought forward
so the third figure is retained earnings carried forward
And where / what is 52,000. Is that profit for the year or is it the subsidiary retained earnings as at date of acquisition (before or after dividend allocation?)
It’s too difficult to follow, sorry
May 20, 2016 at 6:12 am
I’ve found it on the internet
Which figure are you trying to prove to?
Ignoring the dividend from Lamlash, Brodick’s own results for the year were 200 (pre dividend)
Brodick’s share of Lamlash is 80% x 6/12 x 40 = 16
So combined the profit figure is $316
Brodick’s own (without the dividend from Lamlash) is 300
Lamlash consolidated figures are 6/12 x 40 = 20
Combined profits are $320 os which the nci want 20% x 6/12 x 40 = 4
Is that better?
May 29, 2016 at 5:34 pm
HI Mike, Yes much better! Thank you.
sorry had forgotten to reply.
May 14, 2016 at 4:32 pm
Mike need your help again please
Working with a Question to prepare SOPL to 30 April 2007
AQ = 1 Nov 06 (mid-year, 6 months), RE @ aq 52,000
Profit 30.4.07 Divid paid B/F RE
Parent 324,000 200,000 460,000
Sub 40,000 30,000 48,000
Can’t manage to tie W3 and consolidated profit again
as per Answer = Profit =320 with group’s share 316
May 15, 2016 at 6:30 am
I need the full question – where’s it from? And what reference number or name is it?
February 28, 2016 at 11:27 pm
I’m stuck on a question from BPP Study text, where they have given us an extract of the SOCIE, where we have O/B and Closing balance for RE but using your method I cannot tie back the RE to the Comp. income statement or Profit figure from W3
Do you think you will be able to help?
Thanks in advance,

Is it possibly a dividend that has been accounted for but not shown in an obvious way?
March 2, 2016 at 10:10 pm
don’t know, I’ll give it a go again. Thanks
December 5, 2015 at 6:32 am
In chapter 10 example 2
I dont understand why PUP is zero yet Lina sold to Sigimantas at goods worth 4000 at a mark up of 25%
December 5, 2015 at 6:40 am
sorry got it. its because all goods have been sold.
May 30, 2015 at 3:38 pm
In chapter 10 example 2 when you are working out group retained earnings why do you not add in proposed dividend receivable 60% x 5000?
November 25, 2014 at 3:16 pm
Sir, should we include NCI dividends ($2000) in statement of IC (not $3,920 but $1,920) as it is shown in statement of changes in equity?
November 25, 2014 at 3:55 pm
No, dividends are not an expense of a company. A dividend is an appropriation of profits, not an expense
October 31, 2013 at 5:40 pm
Instead of deducting 4000 from each revenue and COS..shouldn’t 5000 have been deducted? Surely the sale was made at 5000 so if I deduct 4000..wouldn’t that make my revenue overstated by 1000?
Please sir Mike need your help!
October 31, 2013 at 6:14 pm
which chapter, which example?
November 5, 2013 at 1:39 pm
chapter 10, example 2.
The line before the requirement, ‘During the year Lina sold $4000 worth of goods at a mark up of 25% to Sig…’
September 24, 2013 at 2:18 pm
Oooops, I had also worked out pup. I have only one question though, Mike, is it allowed if we just ignore inter group sale since they make no difference to arrive at Op profit?
September 24, 2013 at 2:57 pm
Sure it’s allowed. However!!!!!! You will lose the marks available for cancellation of the intra-group trade! Why would you want to ignore it – it must be one of the easiest bits of all the consolidation adjustments!
August 30, 2013 at 4:38 pm
OMG the easiest and simpliest way of explaining how to do the statement of changes in equity!
Thanks very much for tis video Sir!
April 19, 2013 at 9:43 am
I dont understand, in example 2 in the St. of changes in equity why does NCI reduces Retained Earning. Does it always happens like this?
Thanks in advance
August 30, 2013 at 7:12 pm
Yes, the full profit for the year goes into Retained Earnings but, of course, the nci want their share of these profits so the transfer from Retained Earnings to nci will reduce Retained Earnings (if the year’s results had shown a loss, the nci would have been charged with their share of that loss)
Hope that helps
April 17, 2013 at 2:08 pm
I finally understood that the figures in this Statement of Changes in Equity are the same figures that will appear in the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position. Thank you Sir Mike.
I would just like to ask whether it is possible that we will be asked to draw up a Consolidated Statement of Changes in Equity in the context of Question 1. Has this been asked before?
August 30, 2013 at 7:13 pm
No, Statement of Changes IS in your syllabus, but not for consolidations, so it will NOT appear in question 1 – but probably WILL be in question 2
December 1, 2012 at 9:29 pm
Mike, whats the trick is? While W3 you have not counted dividends receivables from Sigmantas. Why do we need to count it in, for instance, in Chapter 9 exercises? (Ch. 9 Ex. 1) Thank you.
December 1, 2012 at 9:57 pm
@biskarre, I got it 🙂
