Profit and Loss, and Balance Sheet

Supplementary Notes

FY 2022 Corporate Tax – Carried Over into FY 2023

The FY 2022 had a profit, of which there resulted in $2,149.47 owed to the IRD as Corporate Tax.

Ideally this would have been a journal entry, effective 31 Mar 2022. However this was recorded on the balance sheet for FY 2022 has a liability.

Therefore this is reflected in FY 2023 expenses, resulting in a Loss of $2,947.86. Excluding this results in an adjusted Loss of $798.39.

Adjusted for Resident Withholding Tax of $1.76 this resulted in a Taxable Loss of $796.63. This taxable loss will be carried forward to the FY 2024 taxable period.

For future years which are profitable, resulting in Corporate Tax owed, these will be journaled effective 31 Mar.
