Minority interest (MI)

When the holding company owns less than 100% of the ordinary share capital of the subsidiary company then the other balance is held by minority interest. Therefore if the holding company owns 80% of the ordinary share capital of the subsidiary then the minority interest owns 20%. The minority interest (M.I) should be shown separately in the consolidated balance sheet but as part of shareholders funds and the figure to appear in the balance sheet will be made up of the following.

-Minority interest share of the ordinary share capital in subsidiary on balance sheet date
-Minority   interest share of capital reserves in subsidiary company on balance sheet date
-Minority interest share of revenue (retained profits) in subsidiary company on balance sheet date.

Alternatively, the total due to the minority interest can be prepared by opening the Minority Interest account whereby the Minority interest’s share of the osc, capital reserves and retained profits in subsidiary company is posted to the credit side.
