|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
NOTE 11 - INCOME TAXES
The Company has adopted FASB ASC Topic 740 Income Taxes which requires the recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statement or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between financial statements and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. Temporary differences between taxable income reported for financial reporting purposes and income tax purposes are insignificant.
For income tax reporting purposes, the Companys aggregate U.S. unused net operating losses $28,256,404 which expire through 2029, subject to limitations of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended. The deferred tax asset related to the carry forward is $9,607,177. The Company has provided a valuation reserve against the full amount of the net operating loss benefit, because in the opinion of management based upon the earning history of the Company, it is more likely than not that the benefits will not be realized.
For income tax reporting purposes, the Companys aggregate UK unused net operating losses $4,364,843, with no expiration. The deferred tax asset related to the carry-forward is approximately $1,823,000. The Company has provided a valuation reserve against the full amount of the benefits, because in the opinion of management based upon the earning history of the Company, it is more likely than not that the benefits will not be realized.
