Sir, what do we do in case the fair value of NCI isn’t given and there is a case of goodwill. Suppose the subsidiary’s capital was 20,000 and the Parent purchases 60% of it for 20,000.
January 14, 2021 at 8:06 am
In that case you assume the fair value of the NCI was 40% x 20,000/60%

Dear Mr Moffat,
I have ,today, attempted the financial accounting exam paper and have succeed in it with 69%.
i wish to thank you for this, as it is all your lectures that have made it possible. i am trying the acca exams since a long time and have never been able to pass until i have come across all your fabulous lectures. In the past, i have used so many studytext and follow course with acca platinum providers but in vain. You have the art of making acca papers fully more comprehensive and easy than any other available study ways.
Many thanks to you Sir,

Do we have Mid-year acquisitions in our syllabus?

what do you mean by bought on incorporation?would you please explain it a bit
November 1, 2020 at 3:58 pm
The date of incorporation is the date that the subsidiary was created. The parent company will either buy on that date or on a later date (depending on what is written in the question).

why are we deducting 1200 profit from value of total inventory (13000+7000-1200). At 22:39 minutes.
Thank You .

It is the PURP – the unrealised profit on goods that were sold from S to P that the question says are left in inventory, so that the inventory is valued at the cost to the group.
I do explain this earlier in this lecture.
May 5, 2020 at 7:30 pm
Hello sir, I have watched your lecture but I’ve got a question regarding the PURP: 1- If the seller is the parent so the PURP must be deducted from the Retain Earnings of the parent.
2- If the seller is the subsidiary then the PURP must be deducted from the Retain earnings of the Subsidiary and does not affect the retain earning of the parent.
3- The final adjustment is that we have to deduct the Inventory at cost: (Inventory less PURP) on consolidated SOFP. .
Are the statements above are true and work for any Inter-Group Trading question??
May 6, 2020 at 7:46 am
1 & 2 are correct.
However to deal with the PURP in the SOPL, we add it to the cost of sales (which reduces the profit of the group).
May 4, 2020 at 7:10 pm
Hi John,a doubt regarding the deduction of the unrealised profit in the consolidated statements.Since the goods are sold on credit between P and S why are we deducting unrealised profit when there was no exchange of any money against the goods between the two companies.It was mere change in the ownership of the goods.
May 5, 2020 at 9:00 am
Sales are recorded when the sale is made – not when the cash is received. If P sells to S then P will have recorded the sale in their own accounts and will therefore have recorded the profit. P has made the profit, but if any of the goods were not sold externally then the profit on them needs removing in the consolidated accounts.

thank you for all your lectures. I just have a question. If a company is a Group e.g Sunshine Group ¨PLC will the financial statements be prepared same as in these chapters of GROUP ACCOUNTS
I would really appreciate your response,
April 5, 2020 at 3:34 pm
The individual companies are not groups and prepare their own accounts in the normal way.
If the companies are a group then they are required to also prepare group (or consolidated) accounts and this is explained in my free lectures on group accounts.

If we are deducting the profit of transfering goods from the selling company ,why not it adding back to the profit of purchasing company?.
August 31, 2019 at 11:13 pm
How to deal with the current accounts if it appears in the question?
September 1, 2019 at 10:19 am
It is explained in the next lecture!!
November 9, 2019 at 1:48 am
1. If the subsidiary sells goods the purp is deducted from retained earning at reporting date??
2. If the parent is the seller then the retained earning at acquisition is deducted from retained earning at reporting date?
November 9, 2019 at 7:56 am
Neither statement is correct as you have typed them.
How we deal with the PURP is explained in detail in the lectures.
