Is it possible to provide the amendment to the question as mentioned above. I tried the NCI at FV as $200,000 X 20% =$40,000. and it would not balance, yet according to the working #3 and #4 this is the correct calculation.
Please explain. I’m confused.
Thanks in advance.

I did same, my NCI was 40000 and it balanced. Check ur goodwill make sure its 340k and ur Net asset at acquisition shld be 300k. I am wondering why d total share is 200 and total nci is also 200. Its doesnt seem right

Hi Sir, In Kaplan, test your understanding 1 of consolidated statement of financial position it says that Dickens acquired 16,000 shares of $1 on 1 jan 20X8, but in the working 3 they are taking fair value as $60000, why?

Hello sir, I’m afraid I don’t understand why you assume FV of NCI to be the whole 200k USD. The phrase is “the FV of Jones’s equity was 200k at acq.”. And the equity share capital for Jones is 200k, so why don’t you consider the 200k for the total, making NCI FV at acquisiton only 20%of it (so 20%x200.000=40.000 instead of 200.000)? Thank you very much .

Yes, you are right. FV of NCI should be $40,000 instead of $200,000.

It will be clearer in the exam the far value of the NCI and I’ll make a minor amendment to the question to prevent any further confusion.
