Dear Friend, as discussed below, MAT Credit Credit does not result in any timing difference since it does not give rise to any difference between the accounting income and taxable income. Kindly refer Guidance Note on MAT credit entitlement as issed by the ICAI for proper accounting treatment and disclosure requirements.

Hi Friend According to the terms of AS-22 MAT Credit does not result in any timing difference since it does not give rise to any difference between the accounting income and taxable income.According to AS 22 Deferred Tax Asset arise on account of differences in the items of income and expenses credited in the P&L a/c. In view of this, it is not appropriate to consider MAT Credit as Deferred tax asset for the purposes of AS 22. However journal entries as suggested by other friend are valid as far as accounting is concerned.
