Where are the cost setting rules in 2009 paper?


The asset cost setting rules are the core of consolidation but there are surprises in their application. This paper reviews the fundamentals of the process with a focus on refreshing understanding and addressing issues that arise in practice including:

  • asset identification and allocation
  • goodwill and the accounting interface
  • what is a retained cost base asset?
  • revisiting previous settings
  • setting values on exit
  • emerging issues.
