    Hello Kayleighz

    To calculate goodwill you need to take the cost of the investment and deduct the net assets at acquisition.

    If there is a non-controlling interest (NCI) the calculation does differ slightly whereby you need to add the NCI then deduct the fair value of net assets acquired.

    Does this help?
