Case 2: Consolidation worksheet, previously held investment in subsidiary (5%)
On 1 August 2018, ITP Syd Ltd acquired 10% of the shares in Peters Ltd for $8000. ITP Syd Ltd used the fair value method to measure this investment with movements in fair value being recognised in profit or loss. At 1 July 2017, the fair value of this investment was $15 400. The original investment in Peters Ltd was due to the fact that Peters Ltd was undertaking research into particular microbiological elements that could influence the profitability of ITP Syd Ltd. With the continuing success of this research, ITP Syd Ltd decided to acquire the remaining shares (cum div.) in Peters Ltd.
On 1 July 2017, ITP Syd Ltd made an offer to buy the remaining shares in Peters Ltd for $151 000 cash. This offer was accepted by the shareholders of Peters Ltd. On 1 July 2017, immediately after the business combination, the statement of financial position of Peters Ltd was as follows:
ITP Syd Ltd Peters Ltd
Share capital 130,000 90,000
General reserve 56,500 12,000
Retained ea rnings 93,500 36,000
Total equity 280,000 138,000
Dividend payable 25,000 12,600
Other liabili ties 75,000 25,000
Total liabilities 100,000 37,600
Total equity and liabilities 380,000 175,600
Cash 11,000 20,600
Receivables 25,200 20,000
Other assets 10,000 8,000
Shares in Peters Ltd 153,800 -
Inventories 55,000 42,000
Plan and equipment 210,000 107,000
Accumulated depreciation - 85,000 - 22,000
Total assets 380,000 175,600
On analysing the financial statements of Peters Ltd, ITP Syd Ltd determined that all the assets and liabilities recorded by Peters Ltd were shown at amounts equal to their fair values except for:
The plant and equipment is expected to have a further 4-year life and is depreciated on a straightline basis. The inventory was all sold by 30 June 2018.
Peters Ltd had expensed all the outlays on research and development. ITP Syd Ltd placed a fair value of $12 000 on this asset. Peters Ltd also had reported a contingent liability at 30 June 2017 in relation to claims by customers for damaged goods. ITP Syd Ltd placed a fair value of $3000 on these claims. The research and development is amortised evenly over a 10-year period. The claims by customers were settled in May 2018 for $2800.
The company tax rate is 30%.
(a) Prepare the consolidated financial statements of ITP Syd Ltd at 1 July 2017, immediately after the business combination.
(b) Prepare the consolidation worksheet entries at 30 June 2018.
Case 3: Intragroup transactions (5%)
Ammi Ltd owns all of the shares of VStone Ltd. In relation to the following intragroup transactions, all parts of which are independent unless specified, prepare the consolidation worksheet adjusting entries for preparation of the consolidated financial statements as at 30 June 2019. Assume an income tax rate of 30%.
(a) On 1 January 2018, Ammi Ltd sold inventory costing $6000 to VStone Ltd at a transfer price of $9000. On 1 September 2018, VStone Ltd sold half these items of inventory back to Ammi Ltd, receiving $3000 from Ammi Ltd. Of the remaining inventory kept by VStone Ltd, half was sold in January 2019 to Goanna Ltd at a loss of $200.
(b) On 1 January 2019, VStone Ltd sold an item of plant to Ammi Ltd for $2000. Immediately before the sale, VStone Ltd had the item of plant on its accounts for $3000. VStone Ltd depreciated items at 5% p.a. on the diminishing balance and Ammi Ltd used the straight-line method over 10 years.
