Bus/Financial - Accounting / Typo?
French term or phrase: amortissement des écarts d’amortissement
Hello all,

I've a feeling this is a typo and should read "amortissement des écarts d’acquisition"....

ie Are they talking about an inability to amortise/write off goodwill?

It's from a text on implementing new IFRS accounting standards.

Any feedback much appreciated.


"Le taux de fiscalité passera mécaniquement de X à Y du fait de l’impossibilité de déduire l’amortissement des écarts d’amortissement dans le compte de résultat."

more information would help to define the exact difference that is being referred to...difference in accounting method, difference in consolidation of goodwill...whatever..

Since this does exist and your text was impaired you shouldn\'t turn it down, right? Or not? ...Just wondering...

Thanks for the feedback Jane - turns out is was actually a 'coquille' in the source. Should have read "amortissement des écarts d’acquisition" (impairment of goodwill).
Thanks for your time.... ;-)
