Question Title: AICPA Newly Released 2014

Lecture to be assigned to: Financial 3

Topic to be assigned to: 2-Business Combinations/Consolidations

Page reference (page # and outline point): F3-10, II. Consolidated Financial Statements

ANSWER:

Choice "c" is correct. The liabilities of any company which is greater than 50% owned by Bard Co. should be included as liabilities in the consolidated financial statements at December 31. This would include the $4,000,000 liability of Brock Co., the $7,000,000 of Porter Co., and the $5,000,000 of Nortin Co., which totals to $16,000,000.

Choice "a" is incorrect. The investor should prepare consolidated financial statements with its investee when the investor has control (more than 50% ownership) of the subsidiary. Bard does not just include the liability of the 100% owned subsidiary, but should also include the liabilities of the 70% and 80% subsidiaries.

Choice "b" is incorrect. $12,000,000 is not the correct answer because it only reflects the

liabilities of the 80% owned subsidiary, Porter Co., and the 100% owned subsidiary, Nortin Co. The liability of the 70% owned subsidiary, Brock Co., should be also included.

Choice "d" is incorrect. The answer of $18,000,000 includes the liabilities of all subsidiaries

listed; however, only the liabilities of greater than 50% owned subsidiaries should be included in the consolidated financial statements.
