German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Law: Taxation & Customs
German term or phrase:fiktive Umrechnungsergebnisse
A Swiss text on taxation.
To conversion of a profit and loss account into Swiss Francs my result in "fiktive Umrechnungsergebnisse." For the purposes of the "nationalen und kantonalen Einkommenssteuerberechnung", these results will not be taken into account.
Here, a literal translation of the sentence is no problem. However, it does seem strange to me that it could be OK to leave out certain amounts from a tax return. Maybe the clue is that "national" is something different from "federal". Especially an explanation of what is happening here, would be very welcome.
