General course details
Merger can be defined as the operation whereby one or more companies, transfer to another pre-existing or new company, all their assets and liabilities in exchange of shares or corporate units of the acquiring company.
Although section XIV of the Commercial Company Law provides a set of legal rules concerning the mergers, the Accounting Law does not provide the accounting treatment applicable to merger operations.
Therefore, accounting for operations of a merger can be complex and raise questions such as:
- Do I record all elements part of the merger at their book value or at their fair value?
- Will a merger surplus/loss impact the profit and loss account or the equity?
- What about a possible retroactive effect?
This course addresses concretely those questions and will provide guidance on how to account for merger operations.
