2.4. Recognition of transactions under common control

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 recognised at their book value.

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

The difference between the book value of the acquired net assets and the fair value of the payment is recognised in the Group’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 Group recognizes them separately.
