The equity method is used whether or not the investor, because it also has subsidiaries, prepares consolidated financial statements. However, the investor does not apply the equity method when presenting separate financial statements. Under the equity method, an investment is initially recognised at cost, and the carrying amount is adjusted thereafter for:.
Adjustments to the carrying amount may also be necessary for changes in the investor's proportionate interest in the investee arising from changes in the investee's other comprehensive income such as the impact of property revaluations and some exchange differences.
The investor's share of those changes is recognised in other comprehensive income of the investor. The investor's share of the investee's profits or losses after acquisition is also adjusted to take account of items such as additional depreciation of depreciable assets based on their fair values at the acquisition date. Similarly, appropriate adjustments to the investor's share of the associate's or joint venture's profit or loss after acquisition are made for impairment losses such as for goodwill or property, plant and equipment.
IAS 28 specifies that the investment in an associate or joint venture accounted for using the equity method is initially recognised at cost. Generally, cost includes the purchase price and other costs directly attributable to the acquisition or issuance of the asset such as professional fees for legal services, transfer taxes and other transaction costs.
Application of the equity method Under the equity method, an investment is initially recognised at cost, and the carrying amount is adjusted thereafter for: The investor's share of the post-acquisition profits or losses of the investee, which are recognised in the investor's profit or loss; and Distributions received from the investee, which reduce the carrying amount of the investment.
Contact us Submit RFP. Did you find this useful? Yes No. I would gladly welcome an article on Derivatives, especially classification and subsequent measurement. The issue around when a derivative instrument is net settled and when it is gross settled. I have serious trouble understanding this.
So they are always measured at FV subsequently. Good work silvia I really appreciate your articles. I have a question for you though ,can a Not for Profit organization consolidate the results of a profit making subsidiary. Hi Kachana, thank you! To your question: yes, why not? But if you are required to prepare consolidated financial statements under IFRS, this is doable even in your situation.
This article is very helpful. I wish i could know you early enough with your articles! Thank you so much. And what happens to start-up costs? I need industry wide practice. Meanwhile, I want to say your intervention on IFRS issues has truly demystified it and made it user friendly.
Please keep it up. Hi Ibe, thank you for your comment. Hope it helps! I always wanted to ask for your time on Derivatives especially, recognition and measurement. Hi Silivia, Thanks for yet another article. By what name we call the statement of financial position and Statement of comprehensive income of a publicly listed company with a JV and have no subsidiary? Regards, John. Very nice. But I had a query. Before using equity method both the investor and invested companies need to have uniform accounting policies.
So if the accounting policies are different then necessary adjustments have to be made in investee books before applying equity method? Kindly, let me know how the associated company of a subsidiary is consolidated in the books of a parent? For Example, if a Company A Co. A very late reply I stand corrected, you first equity account the associate into the subsidiary and then you consolidate the subsidiary including its share in the associate into the parent.
Thank you very much for this article. Very informative. Wondering whether this standard applies to accounting for a not-for-profit associate as well? Now Islamic Finance is developing very fast and Musharakah investment is quite similar to such investment.
Can we adopt the same principles? If the investment in assoicate company figure is , the share of loss of associate company of previous year is and the loss of this year is , how do we do in double entries? You mention that the value of investment in assoicate can be under 0.
Will be put as impairment of loss in long term liabilities in Balance Sheet in this year? Not at all. You simply stop bringing futher losses into consolidated financial statements and keep the investment in associate at 0. It cannot be a liability. But to reply: in the consolidated financial statements, you need to present associate using the equity method as written above. Thank you so much for this article. It is very helpful for me….
But i have a question that 1st point of exemption that.. The parent is exempted from consolidation….. What does it meant….???? I was wondering whether a company, having investment in an associate, is liable to account for the investment under equity method in its separate financial statements?
For example, a company A has significant influence in company B, and there is no other company in the group. Will it have to present 2 separate financial statements? One in which investment is presented under IFRS 9 and one you can call it consolidated in which investment is presented under equity method? Or is it required to present only one set of financial statements with equity method?
Hi AK, IAS 27 permits 3 methods of accounting for investments in a separate financial statements and one of them is equity method. It was added in , I think. Your Article and explanations are very nice and making our work very easy. Please explain me. Thank you very much. Dear Kota, in this case, investment in B stopped being an associate and became a subsidiary. Have a question. What happens when an associate become a financial instrument i. Co A owns land.
At group level, JV Co will be equity accounted. In this case, the land value for our share of net assets of the JV co will be at the purchase price which is at market value? When an associate becomes a subsidiary. How do we treat the shares of profit recorded in previous years? Do we adjust the same with our retained earnings in the seperate financials so the we are left with our cost? How about in the separate fs of the investor, shall we apply it there as well?
Hi Cy, it depends on what method the investor applies for its investments in the separate financial statements under IAS If using the equity method, then yes. Hi, do you allow guest posting on ifrsbox. Hi Mark, yes, I do. Please contact me here. Debit Entry would be the Cost of investment in associate and what would be the credit entry? Thank you in advance. Dear Silvia, Trust you are well, Please advise the accounting treatment of the following statement of IAS The additional losses are provided for, to the extent the investor has incurred obligations or made payments on behalf of the associate, to satisfy obligations of associate which the investor has guaranteed or to which the investor is otherwise committed.
Well, if you guarantee that you will make some payments on behalf of your associate, you need to make a provision for that. Dear Silvia, You are very helpful!! I have a question. When as associate is valued using par 10 of IAS 27, at cost Exception is used , and in the following year wants to make change in policy and value the associate under IFRS 9.
My question is can he do that? And if in the years after this change, fair value cannot be reliably measured can he go back at cost?? If there is a difference what we can do? Hi Silvia, Keep up the great work!! This is truly IFRS made simple. The question I have is this: Can an investment entity which is public listed on a stock exchange elect to value its investments in associates at fair value through profit or loss instead of using the equity method?
Dear Sylvia, Please answer to my question…… please…………. Silvia, thanks for your articles. I can not understand how it will be after amendment IAS 28 from How to revalue investment to fair value? Cyrcul Dear Silvia, Thanks for the above article! Can you explain the other circumstance? Dear Silvia, I have an investment in associate at the end of the reporting period of lets say EUR The share of losses apportioned to my investment equal to EUR 3, The standard says that I cannot create a liability for my investment in Associate so my double entry will be DR Share of loss and Cr Investment in Ass.
My question is what happens with the rest of the amount to be apportioned as loss of EUR 3,? And what will happen if after lets say 2 years the Investment in Associate Incurred profits? You make accounting enjoyable and easier to understand those accounting standards. Keep up your excellent work. Many thanks for your relevant and sustainable coaching in IFRSs. Thank you. Questions, 1 if you are using the equity method, but you acquire the investment, I say, in middle of the year when the investee reports its full year net income, you have to adjust your investment for the full corresponding net income proportionally to your share and also considering the time you have owned the investee 6 months for example?
IAS 27 requires entities to account for investment in subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures in separate statement to use either: cost, or IFRS9 or equity method. This is very confusing as it does not state when cost method should be used. You can use it whenever you choose to in this situation. Hi Silvia! Thanks for the article. Hi anonymous, the standard IAS 28 prescribes this and I recommend reading basis for conclusion of IAS 28 — if there is any reasoning for that decision, the basis for conclusion is the best source to read.
Hi Silvia, I have a question regarding initial recognition. What if the asset contributed to the joint venture is a non-cash asset, what will be the cost of the investment? Hi Ms Silivia I need help with regards to accounting for unrealised losses from when an investor sells property to the associate for less than the carrying amount. Thanks for the notes.
Hi Sylvia, my question is related to initial recognition. If at initial recogntion, the fair value of the asset invested is diffent from its carrying amount, what cost are we going to consider? Hi Sylvia, thanks for this. I am being told this by a number of people in my organisation but I think they are wrong.
Assuming no impairment, the value of that associate would always be greater than the share of net assets because of the equity method. Conversely, in the case of a bargain purchase, the carrying value of the investment in associate would actually be equal to the share of net assets. The associate value would then rise up and down by the change in net assets of the business.
My entries are What if next year, the associate incurs losses again? Will it increase my provision balance again?
