Their biggestargument was that as long as the tax man is happy and we are not cheating on our tax returns, thenwe are simply wasting money in accounting for temporary differences and deferred tax assets(DTAs) and deferred tax liabilities (DTLs) (which I must admit is a mystery to me). Do you have anyproblems if we do not account for the DTAs and DTLs and just account for the current tax liability?Issue 2: At our recent board meeting several directors raised concerns about an intangible assetrelating to the brand name Ezi Kleen which has been successfully developed by the business overthe past years. The directors want to recognize $900,000 for this asset as at 30 June 2020, being adirectors valuation. We also spent about $100,000 for branding research. Could you pleaseprovide advice on the correct presentation of such intangible assets?Please respond by letter (not email) as I would like to present this to the Board. I look forward tohearing from you shortly.RegardsAndrew DixonManaging Director, Dixon LtdLevel 6, 510 King William Street,Adelaide SA 5000Page 3 Kaplan Business School Assessment OutlineAssessment Instructions The assignment (both the word document and the video file) will need to be submittedelectronically through the student portal use the link under Assessments.Referencing Any sources that you use need to be acknowledged in order to avoid plagiarism.Information on referencing can be found in the Guidelines for Referencing andPresentation at the Kaplan website using the following address:(https://elearning.kbs.edu.au/mod/page/view.php?id=128881).InText Referencing and the Reference List Sources of information must be cited both in the body of the text (intext referencing) andthe end of the assignment (reference list).
