Prior to these transactions the balance sheets for the two
Prior to these transactions, the balance sheets for the two companies were as follows:

In Marshall’s appraisal of Tucker, it deemed three accounts to be undervalued on the subsidiary’s books: Inventory by $5,000, Land by $20,000, and Buildings by $30,000. Marshall plans to maintain Tucker’s separate legal identity and to operate Tucker as a wholly owned subsidiary.
a. Determine the amounts that Marshall Company would report in its postacquisition balance sheet. In preparing the postacquisition balance sheet, any required adjustments to income accounts from the acquisition should be closed to Marshall’s retained earnings. Other accounts will also need to be added or adjusted to reflect the journal entries Marshall prepared in recording the acquisition.
b. To verify the answers found in part (a), prepare a worksheet to consolidate the balance sheets of these two companies as of January 1,2015.
