The tax currently payable is based on taxable profit for the year. Taxable profit differs from profit as reported in the income statement because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or exempt in earlier years and it further excludes items that are never taxable or exempt. The liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date.

Deferred tax: Deferred tax is recognised on differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities in the financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in computation of taxable profit and are accounted for using the balance sheet liability method. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which deductible temporary differences can be utilised. Such assets and liabilities are not recognised if the temporary difference arises from assets and liabilities in a transaction that affects neither the taxable profit nor the accounting profit.

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each balance sheet date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the asset to be recovered.

Deferred Tax resulting from timing difference between book profits and taxable profits are accounted for to the extent deferred tax liabilities are expected to crystalise with reasonable certainty. However in case of deferred tax assets (representing minimum alternate tax) are recognised, if and only if there is virtual certainty that there would be adequate future taxable income against which such deferred tax assets can be realised. Deferred tax is recognised on adjustments to revenue reserves to the extent the adjustments are allowable as deductions in determination of taxable income and they would reverse out in future periods.

Income tax expense represents the sum of the tax currently payable. The tax currently payable is based on taxable profit for the year. Taxable profit differs from profit as reported in the income statement because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or exempt in earlier years and it further excludes items that are never taxable or exempt. The liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date. Provision for tax has been adequately made for the year under review.

Deferred Tax: Deferred tax is recognised on differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities in the financia statements and the corresponding tax bases used in computation of taxable profit and are accounted for using the balance sheet liability method. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that taxable proftis will be available against which deductible temporary differences can be utilised. Such assets and liabilities are not recognised if the temporary difference arises from assets and liabilities in a transaction that affects neither the taxable profit nor the accounting profit.

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each balance sheet date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the asset to be recovered.

Deferred Tax resulting from timing difference between book profits and taxable profits are accounted for to the extent deferred tax liabilities are expected to crystalise with reasonable certainty. However in case of deferred tax assets (representing minimum alternate tax) are recognised, if and only if there is virtual certainty that there would be adequate future taxable income against which such deferred tax assets can be realised.
