    Hi Sir Vic,

    If I were to file my FS with the BIR (for income tax purposes), should it be in a comparative form or not?
    Please assume that I am a sole proprietor.

    Hi Sir Vic,

    I have seen an Income statement without provision for Income tax expense and the Income before tax is the Net Income already. Is this allowed in presentation of Income Statement for sole proprietor? I am thinking maybe the reason behind this is because the owner is under Cash basis. Am I right? Please help. Thanks.
