    Hello Mike,
    I was of the of the opinion that we would need to add the $84k retained earning profit for the year to the $820k but you treated it otherwise. Please could you shed more light on this. Thanks. Regards . David

        @mizanm, David, you’re given the retained earnings figure to CARRY FORWARD. That’s 820. But included within that figure is this year’s profits so, when calculating retained earnings brought forward ( or even when calculating retained earnings at date of a mid-year acquisition ) we need to deduct “this year’s retained earnings” from the carry forward position to get back to the brought forward position.

        If it’s a mid-year acquisition, we need then to time apportion the 84
