Allison Corporation acquired 90 percent of Bretton on January 1, 2016. Of Bretton’s total acquisition-date fair value, $60,000 was allocated to undervalued equipment (with a 10-year remaining life) and $80,000 was attributed to franchises (to be written off over a 20-year period).

Since the takeover, Bretton has transferred inventory to its parent as follows:

On January 1, 2017, Allison sold Bretton a building for $50,000 that had originally cost $70,000 but had only a $30,000 book value at the date of transfer. The building is estimated to have a five-year remaining life (straight-line depreciation is used with no salvage value).
