Part (a)

An acquisition can be defined as the difference between the price paid by the acquirer for purchasing another company and the original cost of the assets of the target company (Janice 2013).
Following entries or transaction is incorrect

Reference 1:

Adjustment in Share capital, general reserve, retained earning & BCVR is incorrect and not required.

Reference 2:

Sales revenue- The amount of $25,000 debited in the sales account and $ 22,000 credited in the cost of sales account is incorrect- because for unsold stock with Duck Ltd, to eliminate the unrealised profit of Grape Ltd. the sales should have been debited with $8250 and Inventories should have been credited with $8250

Reference 3:

Adjustment entry done in Proceeds from sales of equipment and carrying amount of sold equipment, the related depreciation & entry done in equipment ledger in asset side is incorrect. Since Duck has treated Inventory and sold to Grape for $28,000 which cost Duck ltd $20,000 Therefore, the sales account of Duck should have been debited to a tune of $8000 and Depreciation account needs to be credited by $8000*20%= $1600 (which is excess on account of group sales) and the carrying amount of the equipment plant) needs to be reduced by net $6400 to eliminate the effect of the sales.

Reference 4:

All the adjustment relating to reference 4 needs to be removed since the dividend entry has already been correctly recorded no further adjustment required. Since Duke ltd (subsidiary of Grape Limited) pays interim dividend so its post-acquisition profit so it should be recorded in the profit and loss of Grape Limited and the same has been correctly recorded (AASB 2021)

Reference 5:

The adjustment for service expenses of $90,000 is incorrect as we need to just eliminate the outstanding and payable rent expenses which are for 2 months @$700 per month. Thus the correct adjustment should be debiting other payables account and crediting other receivables account to the tune of $1400

Reference 6:

Sales of land by Grape Ltd to Duck Ltd. for $25,000 cost $32,000. Thus, the unrealised loss of $7000 needs to be eliminated.

Herein the application of AASB 10 is observed because it develops the principles for preparation, as well as presentation of the consolidated financial statement when the entity has a control over one or more than one entities (AASB 2021)
