Statements ISSUE



taxes in connection with a purchase business combination. The deferred taxes are recognized as part of the purchase price allocation and are not included in income in the period of the business combination. Statement 109 does not, however, provide specific accounting guidance for asset purchases that are not business combinations. Statement 109 also does not provide specific accounting guidance for payments made to obtain a future tax benefit that is in excess of the amount paid. Paragraph 16 of Statement 109 addresses recognition of deferred taxes and requires that an enterprise recognize a deferred tax liability or asset for all temporary differences. With certain specified exceptions, deferred tax expense or benefit for the year is measured as the change in an enterprise’s deferred tax assets and liabilities.
