consolidation accounting
The presentation of the *financial statements of two or more organizations as one economic unit. Consolidation accounting techniques require the combining of the financial statements of the individual organizations of a *business combination (i.e. of a *parent organization and its *subsidiaries), subject to *adjustments like the elimination of profits on transactions between the consolidated entities.
