Assessment 1 Instructions: Accounting for Equity Investments

Complete three exercises in consolidating the financial statements of a subsidiary and parent company.
Introduction
Financial reporting in the business world has changed quite significantly over the years. The procedures used to consolidate financial information, specifically those generated by separate, distinct companies in a business combination are affected by several factors, including the amount of time that has passed since acquisition and the accounting method applied by the parent company in accounting for the subsidiary. As a result, no single consolidation process can be applied to all business combinations; these must be considered on an individual case-by-case basis.
Several factors can add complexity to the consolidation process, specifically when it occurs after the date that the subsidiary is acquired. In all combinations, however, the acquiring company will use a specific accounting method to related to its investment in the acquired company. For combinations being consolidated after the acquisition date, specific procedures are required.
