What is meant by associate in consolidated financial statements?



An associate is an entity over which the investor has significant influence. Significant influence is the power to participate in the financial and operating policy decisions of the investee, without having control or joint control over these policies.



 Significant influence is normally assumed to exist if the investor own between 20% and 50% of investee’s ordinary shares excluding joint control.
