Sir, for PYQ Sept 2018 Q1 (b)
“an exposure draft has been issued so that no business acquisition occurs where substantially all of the fair value of the gross assets acquired is concentrated in a single asset or group of similar assets. This is sometimes referred to as a screening test”
What is the mean ? totally no clue about it.
Thank you.May 14, 2020 at 8:26 pm
Whatever it was – I think it’s gone; the debate was that if you buy a company which owns a shopping centre but has no staff – then the entire acquisition is in substance PPE and not an investment is a subsidiary
I’m not sure whose exam kit you are using but I’m surprised they hadn’t taken this out of the answer

Thank you Sir,but can I know the result of the debate? is it the IFRS 3 being amended for the business definition?

Will this “screening test” still apply now?
