Placid Lake Corporation acquired 80 percent of the outstanding voting stock of Scenic, Inc., on January 1, 2012, when Scenic had a net book value of $510,000. Any excess fair value was assigned to intangible assets and amortized at a rate of $4,000 per year.
Placid Lake's 2013 net income before consideration of its relationship with Scenic (and before adjustments for intra-entity sales) was $410,000. Scenic reported net income of $220,000. Placid Lake distributed $100,000 in dividends during this period; Scenic paid $51,000. At the end of 2013, selected figures from the two companies' balance sheets were as follows:
Corporation Scenic, Inc.
Inventory $ 250,000 $ 101,000
Land 710,000 310,000
Equipment (net) 510,000 410,000
During 2012, intra-entity sales of $130,000 (original cost of $64,000) were made. Only 20 percent of this inventory was still held within the consolidated entity at the end of 2012. In 2013, $200,000 in intra-entity sales were made with an original cost of $70,000. Of this merchandise, 30 percent had not been resold to outside parties by the end of the year.
Each of the following problems should be considered as an independent situation for the year 2013.
a. What is consolidated net income for Placid Lake and its subsidiary?
b.If the intra-entity sales were upstream, how would consolidated net income be allocated to the controlling and noncontrolling interest?
c.If the intra-entity sales were downstream, how would consolidated net income be allocated to the controlling and noncontrolling interest?
d. What is the consolidated balance in the ending Inventory account?
e.Assume that no intra-entity inventory sales occurred between Placid Lake and Scenic. Instead, in 2012, Scenic sold land costing $41,000 to Placid Lake for $72,000 . On the 2013 consolidated balance sheet, what value should be reported for land?
