CALCULATION OF RETAINED EARNINGS.
As on 31.06.2017 $ 1,25,000
Less : W.D.V of Non Current Assets in excess $ 12,000
of fair value.
Net Earnings as on 30.06.17 $ 1,13,000
30 % share of I.Ltd $ 33,900
Carrying value is the initial amount invested in the equity share capital plus adjusted share of retained earnings.
Since I.Ltd will be holding less than 50 % shares, therefore the consolidation system of subsidiary company with that of holding company will not apply.
Revaluation Reserve is not a part of retained earnings and hence has been excluded.
