Assume that on January 1, 2009, a parent company acquired a 90% interest in a subsidiary's voting common stock. On the date of acquisition, the fair value of the subsidiary's net assets equaled their reported book values. On January 1, 2011, the subsidiary purchased a building for $486,000. The building has a useful life of 10 years and is depreciated on a straight-line basis with no salvage value. On January 1, 2013, the subsidiary sold the building to the parent for $420,000. The parent estimated that the building had an 8 year remaining useful life and no salvage value. The parent also uses the straight-line method of amortization. The parent's "stand-alone" income (i.e., net income before recording any adjustments related to pre-consolidation investment accounting) is $500,000. The subsidiary's recorded net income is $115,000.
