Consolidation is intended to present the financial situation of a group of companies as if they were a single entity. The aim of consolidation is to provide a transparent and standardized financial and economic vision of all group companies. The concept of group is defined as a plurality of legally independent entities under a single management with the aim of maximizing the performance of the group. The preparation of consolidated accounts is a key area of accounting education. Like any technical field, consolidation requires the mastery of rules and specific techniques. The objectives of this course are: To know and to apply the principles of consolidation under IFRS; to know how to interpret the financial information that emerged from published consolidated accounts.
