Synopsis

SIC 25 concludes that a change in the tax status of an entity or its shareholders does not give rise to increases or decreases in amounts recognised in equity.

It therefore requires that the current and deferred tax consequences of a change in tax status are included in profit or loss for a period, unless they relate to transactions recognised directly in equity or as other comprehensive income. Where tax consequences do relate to transactions recognised directly in equity or as other comprehensive income, then they too are recognised directly in equity or as other comprehensive income.

The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) provides free access to the consolidated unaccompanied international accounting standards for the current year through its website. Free registration is required.

Which version of the interpretation?

Financial Reporting Faculty members who joined the faculty prior to 1 November 2022 have premium access to the consolidated edition of IFRS and amendments through the IASB's IFRS Standards Navigator service. Please log into IFRS Standards Navigator to access electronic versions of the standards through these links.

Please be aware that as part of the changes to ICAEW faculty membership, this service will be withdrawn after 31 December 2022.
