Allfoods Corp. (Allfoods) acquired 80 percent of the outstanding common stock of Baked Beans Corp. in a business combination. After value consideration transferred value of tangible and intangible assets acquired, libilities assumed, I recommend doing this consolidation general entry for the business combination: Dr.| Land| $ 21,000,000| | | |
