Learning Outcomes

The module International Accounting and Taxation introduces the issues of deferred taxes and an effective tax rate. Deferred taxes mean a future tax liability or asset, resulting from temporary differences between the accounting value of assets and liabilities and their value for tax purposes. Deferred taxes are used to calculate the effective tax rate, which shows the effective tax burden of a group of affiliated companies. After completion of the course on International Accounting, the students have at their disposal comprehensive knowledge of deferred taxes and the effective tax rate.
