Thanks a lot for the lecture and I have a question
How about dividends from associates? How do we have to deal with dividends, lets say, when associated company allocated all its retained earnings for the year and we also got dividends? Are these dividends our investing income or we have to add them to our investment in associate in the SFP? Thats a little bit confusing to me

Dealing with dividends from associates is not examined in Paper FA. It is examined in Paper FR 🙂
However dividends received from the associate is treated as income in both the parent company and as a result in the consolidated accounts. They do not affect the amount on the SOFP.

I do not say that it won’t show at all.
If there is no consolidation then the investment simply appears in the accounts of the company owning the shares, at cost as usual.

But in your lecture note it says that if no consolidation, associates will be treated as a trade investment; non current asset in the SoFP, so how do you say it won’t show at all? This is pretty confusing. Is it that the it won’t include retained profits to the figure or it won’t show at all? Pls reply. Thank you
