It should be recognised using the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date.
- Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for taxable temporary differences.
- Deferred tax assets are recognised for deductible temporary differences and unused tax losses and credits to the extent that a taxable profit will be available against which they can be utilised.
