The trial balance of Highwood at 31 March 20X6 showed credit balances of $800,000 on current tax and $2.6
million on deferred tax. A property was revalued during the year giving rise to deferred tax of $3.75 million.
This has been included in the deferred tax provision of $6.75 million at 31 March 20X6.
The income tax charge for the year ended 31 March 20X6 is estimated at $19.4 million.
What will be shown as the income tax charge in the statement of profit or loss of Highwood at
31 March 20X6?
I have no idea why the Deferred Tax T- account have.
6,750 carried forward
I thought it was the DTL and the opening balance is credit
Please help me.
The closing balance is the $6.75 million as stated within the question. The $2.6 million is the opening balance and from this we can then look at the movement, including that on the revaluation.
Give it a try and see how you get on. Let me know if you’re still struggling.
