On 1 July 2016, Mutt Ltd acquired all the issued shares of Jeff Ltd for $174 800. At this date the

equity of Jeff Ltd consisted of share capital of $80 000 and retained earnings of $68 800. All the

identifiable assets and liabilities of Jeff Ltd were recorded at amounts equal to fair value except for:

 

                                                                                Carrying amount                              Fair value

Patent                                                                  $60 000                                                 $72 000

Plant (cost of $80 000)                                 40 000                                                     48 000

Inventory                                                            21 600                                                   28 000

The patent was considered to have an indefinite life. It was calculated that the plant had a further life of 10 years, and was depreciated on a straight-line basis. All the inventory was sold by 30 June 2017. In June 2017, Jeff Ltd conducted an impairment test on the patent, as it was considered to have an indefinite life, and the goodwill. As a result, the goodwill was considered to be impaired by $1200.

In May 2017, Jeff Ltd transferred $20 000 from the retained earnings on hand at 1 July 2016

to a general reserve. The tax rate is 30%.
