Question

Politan Company acquired an 80 percent interest in Soludan Company on January 1, 2010. Any portion of Soludan’s business fair value in excess of its corresponding book value was assigned to trademarks. This intangible asset has subsequently undergone annual amortization based on a 15-year life. Over the past two years, regular intra-entity inventory sales transpired between the two companies. No payment has yet been made on the latest transfer.
Following are the individual financial statements for the two companies as well as consolidated totals for 2011:


a. What method does Politan use to account for its investment in Soludan?
b. What is the balance of the unrealized inventory gain deferred at the end of the current period?

f. What is the balance of the intra-entity liability at the end of the current year?
g. What unrealized gain was deferred into the current year from the preceding period?
