Included in the accounting profit before tax are dividends received of N$10 000 and a penalty of N$15 000 for the late submission of VAT returns. EPLS raised a provision for current tax payable of N$121 000 for the financial year ended 31 December 2017. EPLS realized that they had under-provided for current tax in the previous year when the final assessment issued by the Tax authorities on 30 April 2018 (relating to FY 2017), reflected income tax payable of N$126 000.

The company acquired a new bottling machine on 1 July 2017 for N$300 000 which has a four year useful life and a nil residual value. In terms of the Income Tax Act, an allowance of 40% is granted in the first year, with 20% granted per year for the subsequent three years, not apportioned for part of a year.
