The definition of deferred tax asset and liabilities are-

The deferred tax consequenes attributable to taxable temporary differences.


ABC Company pretax income BDT. 100000, Depreciation Charge in income statement is BDT. 30000 but tax purpose depreciation is BDT. 46000.


Rent income shown BDT. 120000, but Tax authority measure BDT. 22000 more.


Fine imposed for pullution shown as expenses BDT. 11000.


Tax Rate 30%

DTL = Deferred Tax Liability = Excess Depreciation to be charged as per tax authority.

Amount = BDT. 46000-30000 = 16000

DTA = Deferred Tax Asset = Excess Rent income Charged as per tax Authority.

Amount = BDT. 22000

So, Taxable income = (income as per book + non-allowable expenses) + Deferred tax asset (DTA) item – Deferred Tax Liability (DTL) item

=BDT.  (100000+11000)+22000-16000

= BDT. 116000

So, Journal Entry:

Dr. Income tax Expenses (100000+11000)*30%                             BDT. 33300

Dr. Deferred tax asset (22000*30%)                                                   BDT. 6600

Deferred tax liability (16000*30%)                                                           BDT. 4800

Income tax payable ( 116000*30%)                                                         BDT. 35100
