Group accounts, Business Law and Ethics

Group Accounts:

Section 150 requires a company which has subsidiaries to lay before the company in general meeting accounts or  statements dealing with the state of affairs and profit or loss of the company and the subsidiaries at the time when the company's own balance sheet and profit and loss account are laid before the company's general meeting. The group accounts are to be prepared in accordance with the provisions of Sections 150 - 154 and paragraphs 17 - 18 of the Sixth Schedule to the Companies Act so as to appear "as the accounts of an actual company".

These provisions constitute what is regarded in a loose  sense as an instance of "lifting the veil" because a  member (the holding company) is obliged to incorporate into its balance sheet the assets and liabilities of the company of which it is a member (the subsidiary company) as if they were its own assets and liabilities. This is a modification of the general principle that a company's assets and liabilities are not a member's assets and  liabilities and would not therefore be incorporated into the member's own balance sheet.
