2.8 Theoretical impact of goodwill capitalisations

The goodwill resulting from acquisitions is offset against consolidated equity at the time of acquisition. A theoretical amortisation period over five years would have the following effects on the result and the balance sheet:

in CHF thousand       2019   2018
Impact on income statement (previous year at 30 June 2018)       –10  
Impact on balance sheet (previous year at 31 December 2018)       111  

Retained earnings include CHF 27,932,000 (31.12.2018: CHF 27,932,000) of goodwill that is theoretically fully amortised.
