4. Changes in accounting policies (a) Overview
From 1 January 2013, consequent to the adoption of new and revised TFRS as set out in note 2, the Group has changed its accounting policies in the following areas: Accounting for income tax Presentation of information on operating segments Details of the new accounting policies adopted by the Group are included in notes 4(b) to 4(c) below. Other new and revised TFRS did not have any impact on the accounting policies, financial position or performance of the Group.
(b) Accounting for income tax
The principal change introduced by TAS 12 is the requirement to account for deferred tax liabilities and assets in the financial statements. Deferred tax liabilities and assets are the amounts of income taxes payable and recoverable, respectively, in future periods in respect of temporary differences between the carrying amount of the liability or asset in the statement of financial position and the amount attributed to that liability or asset for tax purposes; and the carry-forward of unused tax losses. The accounting policy for deferred tax is described in note 5(n). The Group adopted TAS 12 with effect from 1 January 2013. The effects of the change are recognised retrospectively in the financial statements. The impact of the change on the financial statements is as follows: Statement of financial position as at

Presentation of information on operation segments
From 1 January 2013, the Group has adopted TFRS 8 Operating Segments. The new policy for presentation of information on operating segments, together with information on the previous policy, is given below. The change in policy only impacts presentational aspects and has no impact on the Group’s reported assets, liabilities, results or earnings per share. TFRS 8 introduces the “management approach” to segment reporting. It requires a change in the presentation and disclosure of segment information based on the internal reports regularly reviewed by the Group’s Chief Operating Decision Maker in order to assess each segment’s performance and to allocate resources to those segments. Previously the Group presented segment information in respect of its business and geographical segments in accordance with TAS 14 Segment Reporting.
