Subject 1. Basic Corporate Investment Categories PDF Download
Intercorporate investments refer to the ownership of the securities (debt or equity) of one firm by another firm. These investments may be made to temporarily invest excess funds or for strategic purposes such as alliances (R&D joint ventures, sharing of production facilities, and vertical or horizontal integration), or acquisitions (gaining control of another company in a parent-subsidiary relationship).

The problems of accounting for intercorporate investments involve classification (current or non-current), measurement (valuation) and disclosure (accounting methods used). All methods for accounting for investments in other securities recognize dividends and interests as income in the year they are earned.
