ACT 470 CSU Assessing & Preparing Consolidated Financial Statements Worksheet

I’m working on a Accounting exercise and need support.

Assessing and Preparing Consolidated Financial Statements

The second part is the preparation of a consolidated financial statement.

Part 2: Problem Solving – Consolidated Financials

Assume that on 1/1/X0, a parent company acquires a 70% interest in its subsidiary for a price at $480,000 over book value. The excess is assigned as follows:

Asset Fair Value Useful Life
Patent $320,000 8 years
Goodwill 160,000 Indefinite

70% of the goodwill is allocated to the parent.

Included in the attached Excel spreadsheet are the pre-consolidation financial statements for both the parent and the subsidiary.

Submission Requirements:

Using the ACT470_Mod08-Portfolio_Option01.xlsx Excel spreadsheet in the Module 8 folder:

  • Prepare the consolidated financial statements at 12/31/X6 by placing the appropriate entries in their respective debit/credit column cells.
  • Indicate, in the blank column cell to the left of the debit and credit column cells if the entry is a [C], [E], [A], [D] or [I]entry.
  • Use Excel formulas to derive the Consolidated column amounts and totals.
    • Using the “Home” key in Excel, go to the “Styles” area and highlight the [C], [E], [A], [D] or [I]entry cells in different shades.
