１. Taxation (Source: “Zeimu Tsushin Magazine”)
Under the Revised Corporate Tax Circular of 2010, due to the abolition of the taxation on liquidation income, if it is determined that a corporation has no remaining assets for each fiscal year during the course of liquidation, its expired unused tax losses are deductible for income tax purposes. (Corporation Tax Act 59-3)
Whether a corporation has no remaining assets is determined at the end of each fiscal year during the course of liquidation. (Corporate Tax Circular 12-3-7)
The case with “no remaining assets” is defined as the corporation has become insolvent. (Corporate Tax Circular 12-3-8)
In addition, the actual balance sheet measured at the disposal value would be an example document explaining that the corporation has no remaining assets. (Corporate Tax Circular 12-3-9)
As a result, for instance, if a corporation with Assets 100 and Liabilities 500 liquidates and obtains a discharge of its debts during the first year of liquidation, it has debts in excess of 400 just before the discharge, but not insolvent at year-end.
In this situation, the utilization of its expired unused tax losses would not be allowed at year-end. Therefore, the timing of debt discharge should be an important issue.

３. This Week’s Words of Wisdom (Source: “English words of wisdom to enrich life”)
“Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. I like fun.” – Colleen Barret
There are two kinds of people, who enjoy their work or who don’t.
The latter share certain characteristics as follows:
(1) Late for work
(2) Can’t cheerfully say “Good morning!”
(3) Can’t nicely say “Thank you!”
(5) Act high and mighty
(6) Lack of responsibility
(7) Happy on payday only
(8) Worry about salary rather than team, organization or company
(9) Can’t take care of subordinates or train and develop junior co-workers
Such persons don’t have the motivation to make their work more interesting.
On the other hand, what kinds of people enjoy their work?
(1) Try to make a positive effort
(2) Prefer capable workers
(3) Punctual, responsible and keep a promise
(4) Cheerful and willing to help others
(5) Set a vision and goal
These things hold true regardless of the era we live in.
