cahiz84 What about temporary difference not likely to be realised?
adam08 then it's permanent difference.
Micha They are not permanent differences by definition (but economically).
clarelau permanent DEFERRED TAX, not permanent difference!!! I should be more careful
jpducros I think permanent deferred tax is somewhat an "exagerated" term since Deffered tax is by nature reversible, thus temporary. We tend to call them permanent only used when investments in the coming years are rising (therefore generating more temporary differences; more DTL) and that the company does not expect to use a Differed tax Liability so soon. Therefore, this DTL could be assimilated to Equity, since it is a form of Long-Term financing.
