Purchase price allocation (“PPA”) is an exercise where the acquirer allocates the purchase price paid to the acquired assets and liabilities of the target company. PPA is usually carried out for accounting and financial reporting under Ind AS, IFRS and US GAAP , which requires companies to report the Fair Value of assets and liabilities acquired in their financial statements. PPA is also required for allocation of consideration paid in a ‘Slump sale’/ ‘Slump exchange’ transaction. PPA process allocates the purchase consideration paid for acquisition of an entity / business to the Fair Value of tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The difference between the purchase consideration and the fair value of the tangible and intangible assets is allocated to goodwill (subject to the impairment assessment).
