Step by Step Solution

Step-by-Step SolutionStep 1: Calculation

The reporting unit’s fair value ($750,000) is less than its carrying value ($800,000), indicating an impairment. The loss is the difference between the $400,000 in recorded goodwill and the $350,000 in implied goodwill.

Step 2: Journal Entry





Loss on Impairment ($400,000 - $350,000)




(Being loss on impairment is recorded)
