Course Description:

A ‘business combination involving entities or businesses under common control’ is a business combination in which all of the combining entities or businesses are ultimately controlled by the same party or parties both before and after the combination, and that control is not transitory. IFRS 3 Business Combinations scopes out common control transactions, but there is no specific IFRS standard which deals with these types of transactions. In this session, we will explore the guidance available for these transactions, considering the accounting in both the consolidated and separate financial statements.

Target Audience:

The session is aimed for accountants in practice, financial reporting specialists and auditors.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this session participants would be knowledgeable on common control transactions.
