Consolidating journal entries
Intercompany eliminations (ICE) are made to remove the profit/loss arising from intercompany transactions.
No intercompany receivables, payables, investments, capital, revenue, cost of sales, or profits and losses are recognised in consolidated financial statements until they are realised through a transaction with an unrelated party.
In the event of consolidation or amalgamation of two companies, the loan is merely a transfer of cash, and thus the note receivable as well as the note payable is eliminated.
The elimination of intercompany revenue and expenses is the third type of intercompany elimination.

The risk of accounting errors in foreign-currency transactions has been compounded by significant volatility in the value of the U. dollar compared with some other currencies, especially in the past 18 months. companies expand their presence in global markets, it is more important than ever to understand and address the most common pitfalls associated with working with foreign currencies.A key factor raising the stakes in foreign-currency reporting is the fact that U. companies are increasingly looking offshore for growth. And this volatility will likely continue, given recent headlines, such as the spike in the yen’s value following Japan’s devastating earthquake last March, the rise of China’s yuan to a new high versus the U. dollar last summer, and runaway inflation in developing countries such as Venezuela. This article examines three frequent mistakes that accountants make regarding the reporting of foreign currencies.Avoiding these pitfalls can make a big difference to companies’ financial statements.Such a misclassification sounds benign, but it misstates net income and hides the gain or loss in an account that is normally presented as part of the statement of changes in equity.This mistake can arise when a company has an intercompany account (for example, a parent’s intercompany receivable from a subsidiary) recorded on the books of companies with different functional currencies. On that date, Parent Company A records a million receivable on its balance sheet, and the subsidiary records €6,961,000 on its balance sheet. Now assume that no other entries are recorded to this account, but that on March 31, 2011, Parent Company A must report its financial statements.
Thus, profit/loss will be visible to the parent’s shareholders only, and not to the minority interest’s.
