Complex groups p2

Complex group structures

 

Complex group structures exist where a subsidiary of a parent entity owns a shareholding in another entity which makes that other entity also a subsidiary of the parent entity.

 

Complex structures can be classified under two headings:

 

  • Vertical groups

 

  • Mixed groups.

 

2 Vertical groups

 

Definition

 

A vertical group arises where a subsidiary of the parent entity holds shares in a further entity such that control is achieved. The parent entity therefore controls both the subsidiary entity and, in turn, its subsidiary (often referred to as a sub-subsidiary entity).

 

Look at the following two situations:

In both situations, H controls S, and S controls T. H is therefore able to exert control over T by virtue of its ability to control S. All three companies form a vertical group.

 

Both companies that are controlled by the parent are consolidated.

 

The basic techniques of consolidation are the same as seen previously, with some changes to the goodwill, NCI and group reserves calculations.

 

Approach to a question

 

When establishing the group structure, follow these steps:

 

  • Control – which entities does the parent control directly or indirectly?

 

  • Percentages – what are the effective ownership percentages for consolidation?

 

  • Dates – when did the parent achieve control over the subsidiary and the sub-subsidiary?

 

Illustration 1 – Vertical group structure

Control

 

H controls S and S controls T. Therefore, H can indirectly control T.

 

Effective consolidation percentage

 

S will be consolidated with H owning 90% and the NCI owning 10%.

 

T will be consolidated with H owning 72% (90% × 80%) and the NCI owning 28% (100% – 72%).

 

These effective ownership percentages will be used in standard workings (W4) and (W5).

Dates

 

S will be consolidated from 31 December 20X0.

 

When H acquires control of S, it also acquires indirect control over T.

 

Therefore H will consolidate T from 31 December 20X0.

Illustration 2 – Vertical group structure

Control

 

H controls S and S controls T. Therefore, H can indirectly control T.

 

Effective consolidation percentage

 

S will be consolidated with H owning 70% and the NCI owning 30%.

 

T will be consolidated with H owning 42% (70% × 60%) and the NCI owning 58% (100% – 42%).

 

The effective ownership percentages will be used in standard workings (W4) and (W5).

 

Do not be put off by the fact that the effective group interest in T is less than 50%, and that the effective non-controlling interest in T is more than 50%.

 

Dates

 

S will be consolidated from 31 December 20X1.

 

However, S did not gain control of T until 30 April 20X2 meaning that H does not indirectly control T until this date. Therefore, T is consolidated into the H group from 30 April 20X2.

Indirect holding adjustment

 

Accounting for a sub-subsidiary requires an indirect holding adjustment.

 

  • Goodwill in the sub-subsidiary is calculated from the perspective of the ultimate parent company. Therefore, the cost of the investment in the sub-subsidiary should be the parent’s share of the amount paid by its subsidiary.

 

– The NCI’s share of the cost of the investment in the sub-subsidiary must be eliminated from the goodwill calculation.

 

  • The value of the non-controlling interest in the subsidiary includes the NCI’s share of the cost of the investment in the sub-subsidiary.

 

– The NCI’s share of the cost of the investment in the sub-subsidiary must be eliminated from the NCI calculation.

 

Illustration 3 – Indirect holding adjustment

 

On 31 December 20X1, A purchased 90% of the equity shares in B for $150,000 and B purchased 80% of the equity shares in C for $100,000.

 

At this date, the fair value of the net assets of B and C were $144,000 and $90,000 respectively. The fair value of the non-controlling interest in B and C was $17,000 and $15,000 respectively.

Note: In subsequent years, the NCI will be adjusted for its share of the post-acquisition net asset movement of each subsidiary.

 

The NCI % in B is 10% (100% – 90%).

 

The NCI % in C is 28% (100% – (90% × 80%))

The following information is also available:

 

  • David acquired 75,000 $1 shares in Colin on 1 January 20X4 when the retained earnings of Colin amounted to $40,000. At that date, the fair value of the non-controlling interest in Colin was valued at $38,000.

 

  • Colin acquired 40,000 $1 shares in John on 30 June 20X4 when the retained earnings of John amounted to $25,000. The retained earnings of John had been $20,000 on the date of David’s acquisition of Colin. On 30 June 20X4, the fair value of the non-controlling interest in John (both direct and indirect), based upon effective shareholdings, was $31,000.

 

  • Goodwill has suffered no impairment. It is group policy to use the full goodwill method.

(W1) Group structure

Control

 

David controls Colin and Colin controls John. Therefore, David can indirectly control John.

 

Effective consolidation percentage

 

Colin will be consolidated with David owning 75% and the NCI owning 25%.

 

John will be consolidated with David owning 60% (75% × 80%) and the NCI owning 40% (100% – 60%).

 

The effective ownership percentages will be used in standard workings (W4) and (W5).

 

Dates

 

Colin will be consolidated from 1 Jan 20X4.

 

However, Colin did not gain control of John until 30 June X4. Therefore, David does not indirectly control John until this date. As such, John is consolidated from 30 June 20X4.

 

 

(W2) Net assets

 

The acquisition date will be the date on which David (the parent company) gained control over each entity:

 

–   Colin: 1 January 20X4

 

–   John: 30 June 20X4

 

This means that the information given regarding John’s retained earnings at 1 January 20X4 is irrelevant in this context.

(W3) Goodwill

 

A separate goodwill calculation is required for each subsidiary.

 

For the sub-subsidiary, goodwill is calculated from the perspective of the ultimate parent entity (David) rather than the immediate parent (Colin). Therefore, the effective cost of John is only David’s share of the amount that Colin paid for John, i.e. $80,000 × 75% = $60,000.

Control

 

Daniel controls Craig and Craig controls James. Therefore, Daniel can indirectly control James.

 

Effective consolidation percentage

 

Craig will be consolidated with Daniel owning 75% and the NCI owning 25%.

 

James will be consolidated with Daniel owning 60% (75% × 80%)

 

and the NCI owning 40% (100% – 60%).

The effective ownership percentages will be used in standard workings (W4) and (W5). They will also be used in (W3) to calculate goodwill, as the group policy is to use the proportion of net assets method.

 

Dates

 

Craig will be consolidated from 30 June 20X4.

 

When Daniel acquires control of Craig, it also acquires indirect control over James. Therefore Daniel will consolidate James from 30 June 20X4.

The following are the statements of financial position at 31 December 20X7 for H group companies:

 

H S T
$ $ $
75% of the shares in S 65,000

All the shareholdings were acquired on 1 January 20X1 when the retained earnings of S were $10,000 and those of T were $8,000. At that date, the fair value of the non-controlling interest in S was $20,000. The fair value of the total non-controlling interest (direct and indirect) in T was $50,000. It is group policy to value the non-controlling interest using the full goodwill method.

 

At the reporting date, the recoverable amount of the net assets of S were $93,000. It was deemed that goodwill arising on the acquisition of T was not impaired.

 

Required:

 

Prepare the consolidated statement of financial position for the H group at 31 December 20X7.

 

 

 

Test your understanding 2 – Grape, Vine and Wine

 

The statements of financial position of three entities at 30 June 20X6 were as follows:

 

Grape Vine Wine

Sundry assets 350 200 120

Liabilities 150 100 40
–––– –––– ––––
460 260 120
–––– –––– ––––

 

Grape purchased 40,000 of the 50,000 $1 shares in Vine on 1 July 20X5, when the retained earnings of that entity were $80,000. At that time, Vine held 7,500 of the 10,000 $1 shares in Wine. These had been purchased on 1 January 20X5 when Wine’s retained earnings were $65,000. On 1 July 20X5, Wine’s retained earnings were $67,000.

 

At 1 July 20X5, the fair value of the non-controlling interest in Vine was $27,000, and that of Wine (both direct and indirect) was $31,500. It is group policy to value the non-controlling interest using the full goodwill method.

 

The equity share capital of Grape includes $20,000 received from the issue of 20,000 class B shares on 30 June 20X6. These shares entitle the holders to fixed annual dividends. The holders of these B shares can also demand the repayment of their capital from 30 June 20X9.

 

Included in the liabilities of Grape are $100,000 proceeds from the issue of a loan on 1 July 20X5. There are no annual interest payments and Grape therefore believes that no further accounting entries are required until the repayment date. The loan is repayable on 30 June 20X8 at a premium of 100%. The effective rate of interest on the loan is 26.0%.

 

Required:

 

Prepare the consolidated statement of financial position for the Grape group at 30 June 20X6.

 

3 Mixed (D-shaped) groups

 

Definition

 

In a mixed group situation the parent entity has a direct controlling interest in at least one subsidiary. In addition, the parent entity and the subsidiary together hold a controlling interest in a further entity.

 

For example:

  • H has 60% of the shares of S. S is therefore a subsidiary of H.

 

  • H has a 30% direct holding in T. H also controls S, who has a 30% holding in T. H therefore controls T through its direct and indirect holdings. This means that T is part of H’s group and must be consolidated.

 

Accounting for a mixed group is similar to accounting for a vertical group.

Approach to a question

 

Follow the same steps as with a vertical group when establishing group structure:

 

  • Control

 

  • Percentages of ownership

 

  • Dates of acquisition

 

Illustration 6 – Mixed group structure

P acquired a 70% interest in S on 1 April 20X4, and acquired a 25% interest in Q on the same date.

 

S acquired a 40% interest in Q on 1 April 20X4.

 

Control

 

P controls S. This makes S a subsidiary of P.

 

P is able to direct 25% + 40% = 65% of the voting rights of Q. Q is a sub-subsidiary of P.

 

Effective consolidation percentage

 

S will be consolidated with P owning 70% and the NCI owning 30%.

 

P’s effective interest in Q is calculated as follows:
Direct 25%
Indirect (70% × 40%) 28%
P’s effective interest in Q ––––
53%
––––

 

The NCI interest in Q is therefore 47% (100% – 53%).

 

Dates

 

The date of acquisition for S and Q is 1 April 20X4.

Illustration 7 – Mixed group structure

H acquired a 60% interest in S on 1 January 20X6, and acquired a 30% interest in T on the same date.

 

S acquired a 30% interest in T on 1 July 20X4.

 

Control

 

H controls S. This makes S a subsidiary of H.

 

H is able to direct 30% + 30% = 60% of the voting rights of T. T is a sub-subsidiary of H.

Effective consolidation percentage

 

S will be consolidated with H owning 60% and the NCI owning 40%.

 

H’s effective interest in T is calculated as follows:
Direct 30%
Indirect (60% × 30%) 18%
H’s effective interest in T ––––
48%
––––

 

The NCI interest in T is therefore 52% (100% – 48%).

 

Dates

 

The date of acquisition for S and T is 1 January 20X6.

 

Further detail on mixed groups

 

Note that the definition of a mixed group does not include the situation where the parent and an associate together hold a controlling interest in a further entity.

 

E.g.

 

H owns 35% of S, S owns 40% of W and H owns 40% of W.

 

This is not a mixed group situation. Neither S nor W is a member of the H group, although S and W may both be ‘associates’ of H.

 

H’s interest in W might be calculated as before as (35% × 40%) + 40% = 54%. Although H has an arithmetic interest in W that is more than 50%, it does not have parent entity control of W, as it does not control S’s 40% stake in W.

 

Consolidation

 

All consolidation workings are the same as those used in vertical group situations, with the exception of goodwill.

 

The goodwill calculation for the sub-subsidiary differs slightly from a vertical group. The cost of the sub-subsidiary must include the following:

 

  • the cost of the parent’s holding (the direct holding)

 

  • the cost of the subsidiary’s holding (the indirect holding)

 

  • the indirect holding adjustment.

On 1 January 20X3 S acquired 35,000 ordinary shares in R at a cost of $65,000 when the retained earnings of R amounted to $40,000.

 

On 1 January 20X4 T acquired 64,000 shares in S at a cost of $120,000 and 40,000 shares in R at a cost of $80,000. On this date, the retained earnings of S and R amounted to $50,000 and $60,000 respectively. S also had other components of equity of $3,000. The fair value of the NCI in S on 1 January 20X4 was $27,000. The fair value of the NCI (direct and indirect) in R was $56,000. The non-controlling interest is measured using the full goodwill method. At the reporting date, goodwill has not been impaired.

 

On 1 January 20X4, T entered into a lease agreement. T is the lessor and is leasing a machine to a third party for two years. The machine has a useful economic life of ten years. No receipt was due during 20X4 so no accounting entries have been posted. T is due a receipt of $10,000 on 31 December 20X5.

 

On 1 January 20X4, T granted 100 share appreciation rights (SARs) to 60 managers. These entitle the holders to a cash bonus based on the share price of T. The SARs vest if the managers are still employed by T at 31 December 20X7. Five managers left during 20X4 and it is expected that another 15 will leave prior to 31 December 20X7. The fair value of each SAR was $10 on 1 January 20X4 and $14 on 31 December 20X4.

(W6) Operating lease

 

The lease term is much shorter than the useful life of the asset so it appears to be an operating lease. The total lease receipts should be recognised as income in the statement of profit or loss on a straight line basis.

 

The annual operating lease income is $5,000 ($10,000/2 years).

 

The adjusting entry is:
Dr Current assets $5,000
Cr Profit or loss/Retained earnings (W5) $5,000

 

(W7) Share-based payments

 

This is a cash-settled share-based payment scheme.

 

The expense should be spread across the vesting period. The expense to be recognised is based on the fair value of the scheme at the period end and the number of SARs that are expected to vest.

 

(60 employees – 5 – 15) × 100 × $14 × 1/4 = $14,000
The adjusting entry is:
Dr Profit or loss/Retained earnings (W5) $14,000
Cr Liabilities $14,000
