Q-Crash Co acquired 70% of Bang Co’s 100,000 $1 ordinary shares for $800,000 when the retained earnings
of Bang Co were $570,000.
Bang Co also has an internally developed customer list which has been independently valued at $90,000. The
non-controlling interest in Bang Co was judged to have a fair value of $220,000 at the date of acquisition.
What was the goodwill arising on acquisition?
my question is that I took 90000(customer list) as fair value adjustment of S.co at acquisition date while calculating goodwill ,but in the answer they have not taken it . why???June 19, 2021 at 7:26 am #625748P2-D2Keymaster

I think they are trying to catch you out (unfairly) by saying that it is independently valued, as I suppose that this is not technically the fair value of the customer list. There should be some explanation in the answer as to why they have not taken it and if there isn’t then it is disappointing.
