Question: Pop Company acquired 70 of Son Limited on January 1

Pop Company acquired 70% of Son Limited on January 1, 20X4, for $ 345,000. On the acquisition date, common shares and retained earnings of Son Limited were $ 100,000 and $ 200,000 respectively. The fair market values of Son’s identifiable net assets were equivalent to their carrying value except for capital assets, which were undervalued by $ 50,000, and long- term debt, which was overvalued by $ 100,000. The undervalued capital assets have a remaining life of 10 years. The long- term debt matures on December 31, 20X8. Any goodwill is tested for impairment on an annual basis. Both companies use the straight- line method of amortization.
