Abstract: The complex process of financial statement consolidation is impossible without calculation of paper profit. This procedure is covered by consolidation rules which are set by the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). As IFRS are recognized in today’s Russia, Russian enterprises should adopt the rules of paper profit calculation. In the article the scheme for calculating paper profit of a group of companies is provided.
