Aimed at accountants moving into a group role or who feel they need a refresher. Others working in an accounting environment would also benefit from learning about consolidation processes.

Whilst a basic understanding of accounting is required, no knowledge or recollection of group accounting is needed, as the course will begin from first principles.

Learning outcomes include obtaining a greater understanding of:

  • Acquisitions and mergers.
  • Preparing consolidated financial statements.
  • Accounting for subsidiary undertakings.
  • Goodwill.
  • Minority interests.

  • Intra-group transactions.
