1. Does IFRS require consolidated accounts to be reported for subsidiary companies pursuing dissimilar activities?
2. Do companies within the EU have to use IFRS as a standard?  Are other standards allowed?
3. It is common practice, according to a publication, that consolidated accounts are prepared from the point of view of the parent company, thus, separating the fair values of minority interests.  Is this practice being worked upon by IASB?
