stranger a. income tax expense is based on pre tax income b. no deferred tax calculation is done on permanent differences
kalps Deferred tax aseets/liabilities are temporary/timing differences that are expected to reverse out in the future
sarath NO deferred tax calculations done on permanent differences.
boddunah if def.tax liabilities are expected to reverse then def. tax liabilities are treated as equity and reflected in share holders equity directly.
ex: growth companies buying new equipment every year b4 DTL reversed.

permanent difference donot result in DTL & DTA.
No DTL & DTA means Inc. Tax xpense = tax payable.
boddunah i mean if def. tax liabilites are NOT expected to reverse then its treated as equity.
