--DEFINITION of 'Push Down Accounting' In accounting for mergers and acquisitions, the convention of accounting of the purchase of a subsidiary at the purchase cost rather than its historical cost.

1 Under U.S. GAAP, an acquirer of a business initially recognizes most of the acquired assets and liabilities at fair value. If the acquired business prepares separate financial statements, a question arises as to whether the historical basis of the acquired company or the “stepped-up basis” of the acquirer should be reflected in those separate financial statements. Pushdown accounting refers to the latter, which means establishing a new basis for the assets and liabilities of the acquired company based on a “push down” of the acquirer’s stepped-up basis. .2 Pushdown accounting typically results in higher net assets for the acquired company on the acquisition date because the assets and liabilities are “stepped-up” to fair value and goodwill is recognized. This in turn usually results in lower net income in periods subsequent to the acquisition due to higher amortization, higher depreciation, and potential impairment charges. Thanks

In accounting, when entities are preparing accounts for acquisitions and mergers, the subsidiaries are usually purchased at their purchase cost rather than their historical cost. This technique of accounting is known as push down accounting. This method is a requirement under “Generally Accepted Accounting Principles”.
