This report discusses the main principle of tax effect accounting and disclosures requirements as defined by AASB 112. It also provides a detailed analysis of Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA)’s annual report compliance with those disclosure requirements and relevance with shareholders and potential investors.
According to AASB 112, main principal of tax effect is to recognize deferred tax asset or deferred tax liability if it is probable that future recovery or settlement of asset or liability makes future tax payments larger or smaller. Requirements are to separately disclose main parts of tax expense, aggregate current and deferred tax relating to items recognized directly in equity, information demonstrating a relationship between tax expense & company’s accounting profit, and certain information relevant to temporary differences and deferred tax assets.
From the analysis, relevant requirements to CCA are AASB 112 para. 79 and 80 (a), (b), (c) and (e), which require expense components to disclose separately. Also, para. 81(ab), (c(1)), (g) and 82A, regarding separate disclosure of tax consequences of other comprehensive income, numerical representation clarifying the relationship between tax expense and accounting profit, disclosure of amount of deferred tax assets and liabilities in balance sheet and income tax expense in income statement, and potential tax consequences have been followed respectively.
