Expected tax changes in 2017: IFRS - Cafeteria - family benefit
Impact on corporate tax when you prepare financial statement according to IFRS in 2017
If a Company decided to change local GAAP to IFRS or would like to do that in the future should be aware of new law in corporate tax for 2017. In most cases the profit before tax according to local GAAP is different from PBE according to IFRS but during the first 2 years of using IFRS the corporate tax and advance for corporate tax cannot be less than it was in previous year when Company used local GAAP. There could be exceptions but it should be proved and documented that the PBE according to local GAAP would be also same as PBE per IFRS.
