The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) has published its feedback statement summarising the main comments received from constituents invited to respond to its draft comment letter in relation to the IFRS Interpretations Committee exposure draft DI/2015/1 'Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments'.

The IFRS Interpretations Committee observed diversity in practice regarding the recognition and measurement of current tax, deferred tax liabilities and deferred tax assets as defined by paragraph 5 of IAS 12 Income Taxes, when there are uncertainties in the amount of income tax payable (recoverable). As a consequence, the Interpretations Committee decided to develop an interpretation.  The draft interpretation proposes that the interpretation be applied to the determination of taxable profit (tax loss), tax bases, unused tax losses, unused tax credits and tax rates, when there is uncertainty over income tax treatments under IAS 12.

EFRAG published its draft comment letter in November 2015 and its final comment letter in February 2016.

The feedback statement summarises the main comments received by EFRAG in relation to the draft comment letter and explains how those comments were considered by EFRAG in reaching its final position on the DI set out in their final comment letter to the IASB.

The press release and full feedback statement are available on the EFRAG website.
