Consolidated Accounts

When you are doing the calculation to find out how much of the subsidiary company the Parent owns do you use the amountof money the parent invested divided by the Share Capital of the Sub or do you use the amount of shares bought by the parent divided by the amount of shares that the Sub has?:confused:

    Second one! How many the parent owns divided by how many in sub ie. parent owns 70 out of 100 shares so owns 70%.

    if you look it will say how many shares bought you just divide that but the number of shares in the company e.g

    x ltd have 12000 share
    y purchased 10000 shares =


    Y Parent holding 83 percent
