How to specific minority interest and associate interests in a forecast

You can specify a minority or associate interest for each forecast in the consolidation as needed.


Minority Interest
After consolidating, a minority interest % is entered. We then add a line to display the minority share of profit deducted from the source forecast profit at the bottom of the P&L report.

If the minority interest is 25% then 25% of the net profit and dividend are deducted from the source forecasts net profit.


Associate Interest
This is where the subsidiary investment is a minority, and/or you have no control over the subsidiary.

In this case it is the reverse of minority interest. We calculate the share of profit % and report that only.
Revenues, Cost of Sales, Overheads etc. are not consolidated into the consolidation
