The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires estimates and assumptions to be made that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities on the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.

Deferred tax assets are recognised only to the extent that there is reasonable certainty that future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realized.
