Treatment in BOA

This query is : Resolved 

23 January 2023 B ltd is subsidiary company to A ltd and C ltd is associate to A ltd. B ltd has disposed a business unit under demerger to C ltd. now C ltd as purchase consideration issued its shares directly to share holders of B ltd. Since A limited is also share holder of B ltd it received shares of C ltd. Now what is the accounting treatment for the transaction in the books of A limited?.

Note: A ltd has recorded investment in subsidiary company B ltd at cost. Therefore there will be no change in value of investment of B ltd in the Books of A ltd after Demerger. But A ltd will receive shares of C ltd the resulting company.

24 January 2023 Credit investment in B limited and debit investment in C limit to the amount related to business disposed by B.

26 January 2023 I am asking from A ltd perspective sir

26 January 2023 The above entry is for the books of accounts of A.

28 January 2023 A has recorded investment in B ltd at cost therefore the the amount of investment in B ltd cannot be changed ?

28 January 2023 Part of investment has gone to C for which C has allotted shares to A.

29 January 2023 sir, how will A pass its investment to C? what I stated is there is demerger between B and C and as a consideration C ltd allotted its shares to shareholders of B ltd. Since A ltd is also shareholder of B ltd , shares of C ltd will be allotted to A ltd and A ltd recorded investment in B ltd at cost. so there is no scope of changing its value. Now how to bring shares of C ltd in to books of A ltd.

30 January 2023 Part of investment in B has gone to C so proportionately reduce investment in B and add investment in C.
Total value will not change.
