The Company utilizes the asset and liability method to measure and record deferred income tax assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets and liabilities reflect the future income tax effects of temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and are measured using enacted tax rates that apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.
The Company had adopted the provisions of Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes, which clarifies the accounting for uncertainties in tax positions and requires that the Company recognizes in its financial statements the impact of an uncertain tax position, if that position has more likely than not chance of not being sustained on audit, based on technical merits of that position. The adoption of this standard did not have an impact on the Company’s financial statements.
