Partial VS Full Goodwill

December 14, 2015

U.S. GAAP requires full goodwill, but IFRS permits full or partial goodwill method.

  • Full goodwill: equals total fair value of subsidiary minus FV of net identifiable assets (NIA). Non controlling (minority) interest is % not owned times total fair value of subsidiary.
  • Partial goodwill: Goodwill is purchase price (of partial interest), minus the % owned times fair value of identifiable assets. Minority interest is % not owned fair value of NIA.
