At the moment, I am kind of stuck with how to deal with consolidated cash flow statement.
Before the way I did was as below, because all the subs are in the same currency as the parent.
- I combined all the parents and subs in balance sheet and P&L
- Eliminate the equities and investment in subsidiaries (including accounting for non controlling interest).
- Eliminate any intra-company transaction (payable and receivable).
Now I have two subs with foreign currency. I was told that I need to prepare separate a cash flow statement for those two.
My question is, if I do two separate cashflow for those subs with foreign currency, then how do I eliminate them on consolidated balance sheet level because if they are separate cash flow statements, then they wouldn't come from consolidated balance sheet.
