Hi? I have a question in which “investment in subsi” does not equal to FV of consideration, so in finding out GW, which amount I should use?
The figure that you use in the goodwill calculation is the FV at the date of acquisition. If this has changed since the date of acquisition due to a change in the share price (say) then you will still use the FV at date of acquisition.
When you consolidate the SFP line-by-line then you will remove the value of the investment in the subsidiary in full but also remove any gain from reserves.
