The deferred tax liability relates for an amount of EUR 2.0 million to a taxable temporary difference following the tax losses incurred by the German branch over the period 2009 – 2011 amounting to EUR 8.1 million which have been offset against taxable income in the Triodos Dutch corporate income tax return over the same period. The Dutch corporate income tax act 1969 allowed income tax deduction on losses incurred by foreign branches of a Dutch resident taxpayer in so far that these tax losses could not be recovered in the country of residence till 2011. This Dutch income tax deduction is subsequently reversed when the branch recovers profitability and the incurred tax losses are offset in the local income tax return, resulting in a taxable temporary difference. Under the German corporate income tax code tax losses have no expiration date.

The deferred tax item further relates to temporary differences between the carrying amounts of intangible fixed assets for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for taxation purposes. The remaining duration is one to four years.

Prior year deferred tax have been adjusted. For further explanation see the general accounting principles.
