What recognition criteria for deferred tax liabilities and assets must Wannon Water meet in order to recognise the net deferred tax liability of $36.879 million in its accounts?



At 30 June 2009 Fedyou Ltd undertook a comprehensive valuation of all of its PPE assets. The results of the revaluation exercise were as follows:


Asset                                                   Fair Value 30 June 2009


Land                                                         $140,000

Plant                                                           120,000

Computers                                                   45,000

Having regard to the requirements of Accounting Standard AASB116 Property Plant and Equipment and AASB136 Impairment of Assets prepare the journal entries required (including tax effects) if the assets were revalued to fair value at 30 June 2009



Under current accounting standards revaluation increments on PPE assets are credited to a revaluation surplus account in equity, whereas a revaluation decrement may be recognised as an expense under certain circumstances.
