This is what i have worked out so far, is this correct?: How do you set the NCI credit amount in the NCI pre-acq entry that i have noted with a '?' if it isn't stated in the question (normally the question will state NCI interest is $...).


Acquisition analysis:


NFVIAL parent = $644,000x0.75



NFVIAL NCI = 644,000x0.25

                     = $161,000

Consid parent = $503,000

Goodwill parent = $503,000-483,000


                             = $20,000
