Presentation of Consolidated Financial Statements :
A parent which presents consolidated financial statements should present these statements in addition to its separate financial statements.
Users of the financial statements of a parent are usually concerned with, and need to be informed about, the financial position and results of operations of not only the enterprise itself but also of the group as a whole. This need is served by providing the users –
(a) separate financial statements of the parent; and
(b) consolidated financial statements, which present financial information about the group as that of a single enterprise without regard to the legal boundaries of the separate legal entities.
