NOTES:
What is to be consolidated?
If separate incorporation is maintained, only the financial statement (not the actual
records) is consolidated.
How are the accounting records affected?
If dissolution takes place, the surviving companys accounts are adjusted to
include appropriate balances of the dissolved company. The dissolved companys
records are closed out.
If separate incorporation is maintained, each company continues to retain its own
records. Using worksheets facilitates the periodic consolidation process without
disturbing the individual accounting systems.

***If the consideration is MORE THAN F.V. of the assets acquired the difference
is attributed to GOODWILL***

BARGAIN and WE WILL RECORD A GAIN on the acquisition***
