Basics of Tax Accounting
The Foundation tax course is designed to deliver tax accounting knowledge at a basic level.

It provides an understanding of the corporate income tax principles that form the basis of tax accounting, and works through the fundamentals of IAS 12 / ASC 740.

This tax training course caters to tax specialists and those with a general accounting background who want to improve their tax accounting knowledge.








This intensive one day tax training course provides:

  • A step-by-step guide on how to calculate current and deferred tax starting from basic principles under IFRS
  • A brief overview of the differences between IFRS and US GAAP
  • An understanding of the impact of current and deferred tax on the financial statements
  • The disclosures required under IFRS
  • A detailed case study exercise putting the theory into practice

The course is facilitated by Deloitte specialists who bring their own tax accounting experience to the training. It is a highly interactive session in which participants are encouraged to share their questions and experiences.

A prerequisite for the course is an understanding of the generic (i.e. non-country specific) principles used to calculate corporate income tax. Non-tax professionals can meet this prerequisite by completing the Introduction to Corporate Income Tax eLearning course.

This course is suitable for those who:

  • Are responsible for the preparation of tax accounting submissions to the Head Office for reporting units within a group
  • Are a Financial Controller, Financial Director or otherwise responsible for tax disclosures and calculations but not directly responsible for their preparation
  • Have limited or no knowledge of tax accounting and want to enhance your understanding of the underlying principles
