Principle of calculation of goodwill, Financial Management

This question tested the core area of specifically gradually consolidation and acquisitions (control to control). The principle of calculation of goodwill at the date where control is gained was a key aspect of this question, in addition to the modification to parent's equity as the gaining of the additional 20% was a transaction between owners.

The most logical way to approach a statement of monetary position question of this sort was to increasing the balances on the face of the statement and then processes any modifications in the brackets. Time should have been devoted to considering the dates of control and the group structure preceding to and after the 20% additional purchase.
