Helloooo I am preparing for my fnst re sit on thurs and cant seem to work this one out...

Claw Plc acquired 90% of the issued share capital of Deer Ltd on 1 April 20X0.

Extracts from their statements of comprehensive income for the year ended 31 March 20X1 are shown below:

Claw Plc Deer Ltd
£000 £000
Continuing operations
Revenue 40,800 18,600
Cost of sales (24,200) (7,300)
Gross profit 16,600 11,300
Other income – dividend from Deer Ltd 1,800 -
Distribution costs & administrative expenses (2,500) (1,600)
Profit before tax 15,900 9,700

Additional data

I am not sure how to deal with the PURP on this?

    Have a look at my article on the consolidated income statement - this covers unrealised profits in inventory. If you still need help after reading this we'll work through it.

    The key to his question is to work out the UNREALISED Profit

    sold to parent/subsiduary 480,000
    cost to parent/subsiduary 100,000
    profit............................. 380,000 Only 50% sold - 50% unsold= UNREALISED PROFIT


    Unrealised profit = 380,000 x 50% = 190,000


    Workings

    sales 40,800 +18,600 - (inter company transfer) 480 = 58,920
    cost 24,200 +7300 - 480 .......................................= 31,020

    Gross profit ..............................................................27,900


    Note there should what ever adjustments you make to sales / purchases/ cost of sales (before adjusting for unrealised profits) the gross will remain the same

    now because we have un realised profits of 190,000 - our adjusted GP will go down to 27,900 - 190 = 27,710

    Thus

    Consolidated IS

    sales 40,800 +18,600 - (inter company transfer) 480 = 58,920
    cost 24,200 +7300 - 480 + 190................................= 31,210

    Gross profit ..............................................................27,710

    (note - to reduce profits increase costs by 190)

    less dist & admin costs 2500 + 1600 ...........................4,100

    Profit before tax .......................................................23,610

    Hi Amy

    Apologies for my delay but I have not been able to log on today. However SDV has sufficiently answered your query. The key point to remember (as I have touched on in my article above) is the whole point of group financial statements. They are prepared to show the group as a SINGLE reporting entity. This is the reason IAS 27 (shortly to become IFRS 10) requires elimination of all intra-group trading. Profits on sale of inventory can only be recognised once the goods have been sold to outsiders (i.e. the group's customers).

    If you were preparing both the consolidated income statement and consolidated statement of financial position, the double entry would be DR cost of sales (as the original credit containing the unrealised profit would have been to inventory in cost of sales when recognising the pre-adjusted inventory figure) and CR inventory in current assets to reduce the value of inventory in the consolidated financial statements to accord to IAS2 principles i.e. lower of cost and net realisable value.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards
    Steve
