Business combinations under common control

Date recorded:

Oral Update


The Technical Principal leading the project informed the Board of the discussions relating to Business Combinations under Common Control (BCUCC) held at the recent Accounting Standards Advisory Forum (ASAF) meeting. ASAF had mixed views about which approach should be pursued, with some ASAF members suggesting to use the unmodified acquisition method for BCUCC. There was some discussion on whether the presence of non-controlling interests (NCIs) played a role and whether the size of NCI mattered. Based on the discussion, as a next step the staff will explore accounting models for transactions that include NCI and transactions that do not.
