Financial income is interest income recognised in the income statement as it accrues, using the
effective interest method.
Current tax is the tax currently payable based on taxable profit for the year. Deferred income taxes
are calculated using the liability method on temporary differences.
Deferred tax is generally provided on the difference between the carrying amounts of assets and
liabilities and their tax bases. However, deferred tax is not provided on the initial recognition of
goodwill, nor on the initial recognition of an asset or liability unless the related transaction is a business
combination or affects tax or accounting profit. Deferred tax on temporary differences associated with
shares in subsidiaries is not provided if reversal of these temporary differences can be controlled by
the group and it is probable that reversal will not occur in the foreseeable future. In addition, tax losses
available to be carried forward as well as other income tax credits to the group are assessed for
recognition as deferred tax assets.
Deferred tax liabilities are provided in full, with no discounting. Deferred tax assets are recognised to
the extent that it is probable that the underlying deductible temporary differences will be able to be
offset against future taxable income. Current and deferred tax assets and liabilities are calculated at
tax rates that are expected to apply to their respective period of realisation, provided they are enacted
or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date.
