Other income and expenses

The other income and expenses includes the annual fees received from the various Group companies for providing the partners work force for the company.


The company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries make up a fiscal unity and therefore jointly and severally liable for the tax liabilities of the fiscal unity as a whole. The corporate income tax is calculated as if the company and its subsidiaries were individually separately liable for tax and is offset against the current account of the parent company, Coöperatief Deloitte U.A. Corporate income tax is calculated at the applicable rate on the result for the financial year, taking into account permanent differences between profit calculated according to the financial statements and profit calculated for taxation purposes. Deferred tax is recognised in respect of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets (if applicable) are only valued insofar as their realisation is likely. Deferred tax assets are recognised on the balance sheet of the company until they are realised.
