Push-Down Accounting, Push-Down Capital, Consolidated Balance Sheet On The Date Of Acquisition
Push-down Accounting has gained great popularity over the last decade with the resurrection of acquisitions and the increased global expansion of business activities.

The ending reported consolidated amounts are also identical whether this method is used or not.
