However, the directors are not sure how to do this and therefore has come to you for help. Which of the following correctly explains how the process should be carried out?

    • The unit (as a whole) should be impaired with goodwill first and then the others on pro rata basis.

    • An impairment cannot occur just for a single Reporting Unit, but for the whole business, therefore this is not applicable.
