  1. On January 1, 2008, Line Corporation acquired all of the common stock of Staff Company for $300,000. On that date, Staffs identifiable net assets had a fair value of $250,000. The assets acquired in the purchase of Staff are considered to be a separate reporting unit of Line Corporation. The carrying value of Staffs investment at December 31, 2008, is $310,000. The fair value of the net assets (excluding goodwill) at that date is $220,000 and the fair value of the reporting unit is determined to be 260,000.

 

Required:

  • Explain how goodwill is tested for impairment for a reporting unit.
  • Determine the amount, if any, of impairment loss to be recognized at December 31, 2008.

 

  • To test for the impairment of goodwill, the fair value of the reporting unit is compared with its carrying amount. If the fair value of the reporting unit exceeds its carrying amount, the goodwill of that reporting unit is considered unimpaired. On the other hand, if the carrying amount of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, an impairment of the reporting units goodwill is implied. The amount of the reporting units goodwill impairment is measured as the excess of the carrying amount of the units goodwill over the implied value of its goodwill. The implied value of its goodwill is determined as the excess of the fair value of the reporting unit over the fair value of its net assets excluding goodwill.

 

  1. The $310,000 carrying value exceeds the $260,000 fair value, implying impairment. Implied goodwill = $260,000 $220,000 = $40,000.

 

Impairment loss = $50,000 $40,000 = $10,000.
