a) Positive goodwill to be carried in the accounts at cost and incase the management feels there’s been a loss of value (impairment), then it should be charged as an expense.

      DR.  Group retained profits
            CR.  Cost of control (with the impairment)


b) Negative goodwill should be reported as income immediately.

Relevant entries are;;

       CR. Group profit and loss/retained profits (with the full negative goodwill)
