Accounting for Deferred Taxation under SFRS(I) 1-12 Income Taxes with Excel Illustrations


Accounting for income taxes requires proper understanding of current and deferred taxation. For many finance professionals, the concepts underlying current and deferred taxation are not intuitive. Applying these concepts requires a thorough knowledge of the relevant income tax laws as well as the requirements of SFRS(I) 1-12 Income Taxes. The concepts and application of deferred taxation under SFRS(I) 1-12 Income Taxeshave always been rather challenging even for the more experienced finance professionals.

Wolters Kluwer presents a one-day workshop to share some insights into the more challenging aspects of accounting for current and deferred taxation under SFRS(I) 1-12 Income Taxes. Through a combination of conceptual discussions and illustrative applications using Excel, the workshop will address key accounting issues and requirements of current and deferred taxation under SFRS(I) 1-12 Income Taxes
