Inventory 16 000 20 000
Receivables 20 000 18 000
The machinery, which had a remaining useful life of 5 years, was adjusted to fair value after the
acquisition date in the consolidation worksheet. The machinery was sold by Lesnar Ltd on
1 January 2021 for $4000, with the related valuation reserve being transferred on consolidation to retained earnings. By 30 June 2017, receivables had all been collected and inventory sold. For the year ended 30 June 2021, the following information is available:

Required:
Prepare the acquisition analysis and consolidation worksheet journal entries for the preparation of the consolidated financial statements of Cena Ltd at 30 June 2021 using the partial goodwill method. (30 Marks) Question 2
The accountant for HHH Ltd, Ms Stephanie, has sought your advice on an accounting issue that has been puzzling her. When preparing the acquisition analysis relating to HHH Ltd’s acquisition of Orton Ltd, she calculated that there was an excess on acquisition of $10,000. Being unsure of how to account for this, she was informed by accounting acquaintances that this should be recognized as income. However, she reasoned that this would have an effect on the consolidated profit in the first year after acquisition date. For example, if Orton Ltd reported a profit of $50,000, then consolidated profits would be $60,000. She is unsure of whether this profit is all postacquisition profit or a mixture of pre-acquisition profit and post-acquisition profit.
Required:
How should the excess be accounted for? What is the effect of its recognition on subsequent consolidated financial statements? (10 Marks)
ALL THE BEST!
