These examples support the commentary in the FRS 102 ― specific deferred tax issues guidance note.
Example 1 ― voluntary revaluation of property, plant and equipment
A company purchased a freehold property for use in its business during the year for £3 million. It has decided to adopt a policy of annual revaluation.
At the end of the year, the property has been depreciated to a book value of £2.9 million and at this date it is revalued to £3.2 million. Assume the retail prices index has increased by 1.5% since the property was purchased.
The corporation tax rate is considered to be 19% in this calculation.
The company must recognise a deferred tax liability, assuming a sale of the property at the reporting date. The unrealised capital gain is:
The corporation tax payable would be 19% on £0.155m = £29,450.
Indexation allowance is frozen from 1 January 2018, so the indexation allowance on the freehold property will only be available up to the end of December 2017 and assets acquired from 1 January 2018 will not attract indexation on disposal.
