Question: Waters Corporation purchased Johnson Company 3 years ago and at that time recorded goodwill of $400,000. The Johnson Division’s net assets, including the goodwill, have a carrying amount of $800,000. The fair value of the division is estimated to be $1,000,000. Prepare Waters’ journal entry, if necessary, to record impairment of the goodwill.
The debited amount is loss on impairment by $50,000 and credited amount is goodwill by $50,000.
The fair value of the reporting unit ($750,000) is less than the carrying value ($800,000)— an impairment has occurred. The loss is the difference between the recorded goodwill and the implied goodwill.
Loss on Impairment
(Being goodwill impairment is recorded)
