Temporary difference: a difference between the carrying amount of an asset or liability and its tax base. ─ Taxable temporary difference: a temporary difference that will result in taxable amounts in the future when the carrying amount of the asset is recovered or the liability is settled. ─ Deductible temporary difference: a temporary difference that will result in amounts that are tax deductible in the future when the carrying amount of the asset is recovered or the liability is settled.
In the aftermath of World War II, the United States enjoyed an easy
preeminence in the world economy. Neither the US education system, nor
the US tax system, nor American savings habits were criticized on
grounds of international competitiveness. During the 1980s, however,
Americans took notice of their faults as Japan and the European Union
both seemed destined to challenge US preeminence. For different reasons
neither Japan nor the European Union prospered during the 1990s but the
US economy thrived on a technology boom.

578 Making Key Strategic Decisions
Tax Savings Corporations in the U.S. pay billions each year in corporate income taxes. M&A activity may create tax savings that would not be possible absent the transaction. While acquisitions made solely to reduce taxes would be disallowed, substantial value may result from tax savings in deals initiated for valid business purposes. We consider the following three ways that tax incentives may motivate acquisition activity: 1. Unused operating losses. 2. Excess debt capacity. 3. Disposition of excess cash.
We interviewed experts to explain the growth of Luxembourg and Ireland. Tiny Luxembourg grew to
be a European mutual fund hub, fueled by favorable bank secrecy and tax laws as well as its central
location. The growth of Ireland (Dublin in particular) on the other hand, was driven by a tax advantage
given to management companies and a highly educated labor force. In particular, until recently, fund
management companies paid a tax of only 10% on their income (relative to a 32% corporate income tax
in Ireland) and they were allowed extra deductions for rental...

In early 1979 Martin Feldstein suggested that the general approach of
Mervyn King's Public Policy and the Corporation (1977) could be used to
compare effective marginal tax rates for several different countries.
Despite the mixed signals, the authorities are taking steps to improve the
business climate. Zimbabwe has eased business start-up by reducing registration fees and
initiated a process to speed up the name search process and company and tax registration. In
addition, the corporate income tax rate was reduced from 30% to 25%, the capital gains tax
was lowered from 20% to 5%, and the payment of corporate income tax was simplified by
allowing quarterly payment through commercial banks.
There are currently 15 states offering income-tax credits for renewable energy technologies,
with nine states offering both personal and corporate tax credits. These programs are
administered by state revenue departments or other state agencies. All but three of these 15
states consider both solar and wind technologies eligible for the incentive. Credits against
income tax range from 10% to 35% of equipment and installation costs for both personal and
corporate income-tax credits. Three states have performance-based credits.

This event is most important for the Social Network of Latin America and
the Caribbean. The network has allowed La Red Social to cooperate among
various countries in the struggle against poverty. It recently also completed
an important study of the potentials and the limitations of social funds.
Social funds, created as instruments of the social policy pursued by each
country, were designed to mobilize resources rapidly for the financing of
social action programs.
328 Planning and Forecasting
an arrangement would be disastrous to Brad, since the IRS would currently assess income tax to Brad on such an arrangement, using the much criticized “economic benefit” doctrine. Under this theory, monies irrevocably set aside for Brad grant him an economic benefit (presumably by improving his net worth or otherwise improving his creditworthiness) upon which he must pay tax.
This book introduces corporate financial management, based on the basic capital budgeting framework and the time value of money. It focuses on theoretical formulations and correct application of financial techniques that will help improve managerial and financial decisions. Based on fundamental principles of accounting and finance like time value of money and after-tax cash flows, it introduces readers to real-world constraints and complexities in the two fields.
The United States Constitution established the world’s first federal
system encompassing an economic union and a political union
whose central characteristic is dual sovereignty with Congress possess-
ing delegated powers and states possessing reserved or residual powers.
A federal system automatically raises questions pertaining to the nature
of appropriate relations between the national government and state gov-
ernments at the boundary lines of their respective authority and between
sister states each possessing equal powers.
Additional efforts are underway to further increase the attractiveness of capital market
investment in Brazil. The income tax exemption was extended to foreign investors’
investments in long term corporate bonds and infrastructure bonds.
The private sector is also
keen on this policy agenda. The private capital markets association (Anbima) launched a
“New Fixed Income Market” project to facilitate long-term financing operation.
The Corporation is a mutual fund corporation as
defined in the Income Tax Act (“Canada”) with a
September 30th tax year-end. All of the outstanding
share classes are aggregated in determining the tax
position of the corporation as a whole. Interest and
foreign income are taxed at corporate rates subject to
permitted deductions for expenses. The taxable
portion of net capital gains is subject to tax at
corporate rates applicable to mutual fund corporations,
but taxes paid thereon are refundable.
This is because the evidence is clear that open trade and investment, underpinned by
an effective framework of rules, delivers the best results for both developed and
developing countries. It is good economics. And it has been the UK’s own experience
too: increased trade with Europe since the early 1980s has added almost £3,300 a year
to the net income of the average British household. The fastest growing emerging
economies are now creating new opportunities for all to benefit further from trade and
Figure 8 shows our multiyear forecast

Account (EPA) revenues, including revenues
resulting from the two tax-related measures
that voters approved at the statewide election
on November 6, 2012. These two measures are
Proposition 30 (which increases personal income
tax [PIT] rates for higher-income Californians
through 2018 and raises the sales and use tax

The evidence does suggest that high-income households take tax increases into account
in decisions about the timing of income and the form in which they receive income. For
example, research on capital gains demonstrates that people may plan when they sell an
asset if a pending law change will affect their taxes on income from the sale. Similarly,
changes in the difference in tax rates between household and corporate income have
been shown to produce shifts in the type of compensation taken by corporate executives
and business owners....
