Hi @berty09090909
Answer:
Goodwill
Price paid = 1400
LESS: share capital (1,000 x 70%) = (700)
retained earnings (190 x 70%) = (133)
revaluation reserve (200 x 70%) = (140)
Consolidated Goodwill = 427
Hope this helps your answer.0

Retained earnings attributable to NCI (250x30%) =75
Revaluation reserve attributable to NCI (200x30%) =60
Total NCI= 300+75+60=435

Has anyone recently sat Financial Statement?
How was it compared with the AAT assesements online? Any area where you found something difficult? Anything about the written task?
Thanks in advanceBelieve you can and you're halfway there...0 
Hi, Im really struggling with consolidated statements on this exam. Im currently doing this question on the practice exam and its the retained earning figure that is confusing me. Why am I doing 190 x 70% instead od 250 x 70%. The only thing I can thing of is cancelling out the 60 inter company sale but I thought that would effect the parent not the subsidiary???

Hi Nicolle11,
I have just recently learnt this and as far as I can understand, you do not do 250x 70% or 190x70%, instead you have to think that at the date of acquisitions Hill Ltd's retained earnings were £190k, figure of £250 is of post acquisition, in simple English when beacon ltd acquired 70% of the share capital on 1 July 20x0, retained earnings of hill Ltd were£190,000. Therefore you have to take that amount out of £250k which relates to June 20x1. So (250190) = 60x70% would give you 42k.
I hope this has answered your question well, if not someone can explain this better here.0 
I am doing my exam today and cannot figure out how we get the retained earnings figure. please help!!0
