Consolidation & Income Taxes

Advanced financial accounting PowerPoint presentation. In this presentation we’ll talk about consolidation and income taxes get ready to account with advanced financial accounting. For a non taxable acquisition, the tax basis of assets acquired and liabilities assumed is not changed from the acquisition. In this case, then the carrying basis is the acquire ease basis, the acquiring company needs to identify all assets and liabilities acquired and their fair market value when the acquisition takes place, and then the deferred tax assets or liabilities that are from the difference between the fair market value and the tax basis when allocating the purchase price must be recorded by the acquiring company. So we have the tax expense allocation. When consolidated return is filed. What are we going to do with this tax expense allocation, the parent company and subsidiaries can file a consolidated income tax return or they can choose to file separate returns. So this is one of the things that we kind of have to consider here we’ve got a controlling interest that’s going to be involved. So we have two entities, one has a controlling interest and the other obviously parents subsidiary type of relationship question, then should we report just one tax return? Or should we have two tax returns, this is going to be a decision that needs to be made. But if we file one tax return, then at least 80% of its stock must be held by the parent company or another company included in the consolidation return for a subsidiary to be eligible to be included in a consolidated tax return.
