1) Pre-acquisition losses in subsidiary company on date of acquisition: If the subsidiary company has a loss on the date of acquisition i.e. a debit balance in the retained profits (profit and loss) account, then in computing good will, the entry to cost of control of profit and loss on acquisition

2) Acquisition during the financial period (particularly during the financial period): The holding company may acquire the subsidiary company partway through the financial period such that as at the balance sheet date, the subsidiary company has been held for a period of less than 12 months.

3) Group structures: A group structure is the relationship between the holding company and its subsidiaries. There are normally four main types of group structures (apart from the holding company and one subsidiary).
