Cons of Investment & Equity Holdings

Postby dans » Tue Oct 10, 2006 1:36 pm

I am uncertain about how Cons of Investment and BCS reporting handles Equity held (minority) entities.

It is my understanding that instead of including all of the line items as with majority owned entities, the equity held entities are only accounted for with the Investment and proportional share of earnings.

When the entity in included in BCs with the entire balance sheet and P&L accounts, how does the reporting/system know to exclude this, or is it eliminated as part of Cons of Investment?

Any light you can shed on this for me is greatly appreciated.

I have the answer. The BCS virtual infocube for reporting has logic that reads the accounting technique assignments to determine what to include and exclude for this.
