CFunder Something may be recorded for tax purposes cash received on revenue and if you are recording it under the cost recovery method you wouldn't have recorded for financial statement purposes. Which would make A correct as well. Just a thought....
boddunah i think answer b is wrong, item B should lead to temporary diff.permanent diff = item is not recognised for tax purposes by tax authorities ,tax credit and if company buys plant and equipment on regular basis that results in replacement of def. tax liabilities every year.
