RETAINED PROFITS BROUGHT FORWARD

If we recall from the consolidated balance sheet, the group-retained profits should be made up of the holding companies retained profit plus the holding companie’s share of subsidiary companies post acquisition retained profits. The same case applies to computing the retained profits brought forward of the group. The group-retained profits brought forward should be made up of the holding companies retained profit brought forward plus the holding companie’s share of subsidiary companies post acquisition retained profits brought forward.

But we have to make adjustments to the holding companies retained profits brought forward and the subsiairy company’s profits before we get the holding companies sher. The adjustments are for transactions that took place previously that affect the profits of these two companies.

The holding companies retained profits brought forward will therefore be adjusted as follows:

£

Holding companies retained profit brought forward
