Preface
Introduction
This Standard makes amendments to the Australian Accounting Standards and Interpretation listed in paragraph 1 of the Standard.
These amendments arise from the following sources:
(a)      the issuance of International Financial Reporting Standard Consolidated Financial Statements, Joint Arrangements and Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities: Transition Guidance (Amendments to IFRS 10, IFRS 11 and IFRS 12) by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) in June 2012;
(b)      the decision of the AASB to defer the mandatory application of AASB 10 Consolidated Financial Statements and related Standards to not-for-profit entities until annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014;
(c)       editorial corrections made by the IASB to its Standards and Interpretations (IFRSs); and
(d)      editorial corrections made by the AASB to its pronouncements.
Main Features of this Standard
Main Requirements
The amendments to AASB 10 and related Standards revise the transition guidance relevant to the initial application of those Standards, to clarify the circumstances in which adjustments to an entity’s previous accounting for its involvement with other entities are required and the timing of such adjustments.  These amendments result from proposals issued in AASB Exposure Draft ED 224 Transition Guidance (December 2011).
Further amendments to AASB 10 and related Standards revise their application paragraphs, so that they apply mandatorily to not-for-profit entities for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014, with early application permitted for not-for-profit entities only from 1 January 2013.  The application of the amendments set out in AASB 2011-7 Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards arising from the Consolidation and Joint Arrangements Standards is similarly amended.  There is no change to the application date for for-profit entities, which are required to apply those Standards for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013, with early application permitted.
This Standard also makes various editorial amendments to a range of Australian Accounting Standards and to Interpretation 12 Service Concession Arrangements, including amendments to reflect changes made to the text of IFRSs by the IASB.
Application Date
This Standard applies to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013.  Early application is permitted, subject to conditions in relation to the amendments to AASB 10 and related Standards.  When those Standards are applied, this Standard is also required to be applied.
 
aCCOUNTING STANDARD AASB 2012-10
The Australian Accounting Standards Board makes Accounting Standard AASB 2012-10 Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards – Transition Guidance and Other Amendments under section 334 of the Corporations Act 2001.

(b)          if the investee is not a business (as defined in AASB 3), measure the assets, liabilities and non-controlling interests in that previously unconsolidated investee on the date of initial application as if that investee had been consolidated (applying the acquisition method as described in AASB 3 but without recognising any goodwill for the investee) from the date when the investor obtained control of that investee on the basis of the requirements of this Standard.

(ii)(b)  if the investee is not a business, apply the acquisition method as described in AASB 3 but without recognising any goodwill for the investee as of the deemed acquisition date.  The deemed acquisition date shall be the beginning of the earliest period for which the application of this paragraph C4(b) is practicable, which may be the current period.

C4B   When an investor applies paragraphs C4–C4A and the date that control was obtained in accordance with this Standard is later than the effective date of AASB 3 as revised in 2008 (AASB 3 (March 2008)), the reference to AASB 3 in paragraphs C4 and C4A shall be to AASB 3 (March 2008).  If control was obtained before the effective date of AASB 3 (March 2008), an investor shall apply either AASB 3 (March 2008) or AASB 3 (July 2004).
C4C   When an investor applies paragraphs C4–C4A and the date that control was obtained in accordance with this Standard is later than the effective date of AASB 127 as revised in 2008 (AASB 127 (March 2008)), an investor shall apply the requirements of this Standard for all periods that the investee is retrospectively consolidated in accordance with paragraphs C4–C4A.  If control was obtained before the effective date of AASB 127 (March 2008), an investor shall apply either:
(a)          the requirements of this Standard for all periods that the investee is retrospectively consolidated in accordance with paragraphs C4–C4A; or

The investor shall adjust retrospectively the annual reporting period immediately preceding the date of initial application.  When the date that the investor became involved with (but did not obtain control in accordance with this Standard), or lost control of, the investee is earlier than the beginning of the immediately preceding period, the investor shall recognise, as an adjustment to equity at the beginning of the immediately preceding period, any difference between:
(a)          the previous carrying amount of the assets, liabilities and non-controlling interests; and

C5A   If measuring measurement of the retained interest in the investee in accordance with paragraph C5 is impracticable (as defined in AASB 108), the an investor shall apply the requirements of this Standard for accounting for a loss of control at the beginning of the earliest period for which application of this Standard paragraph C5 is practicable, which may be the current period.
