Annual report 2019

2.4. Recognition of jointly controlled operations

Business combinations under common control do not fall within the scope of IFRS regulations. In the absence of detailed IFRS regulations in this regard, in line with the guidelines specified in IAS 8 Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors, BNP Paribas Bank Polska S.A. adopted an accounting policy generally applied to any business combinations under common control within the Bank’s Group, whereby such transactions are recognized at their book value.

In accordance with the adopted accounting principles, the acquirer recognizes the assets, liabilities and equity of the acquiree at their present book value adjusted only for purposes of harmonizing the accounting principles of the acquiree with those of the acquirer. Goodwill and negative goodwill are not recognized.

The difference between the book value of the acquired net assets and the fair value of the payment is recognized in the Bank’s equity. A method based on book values is used, and therefore the comparative data are not restated.

If the business combination under common control involves acquisition of minority interests, the Bank recognizes them separately.
