报告人：Cheng Jiang(Lingnan University, Hong Kong)
How does a financial accounting standard for tax accruals affect loss provisioning of PC insurers?Loss reserves, which accounted for approximately 57% of the total liabilities of PC insurers in 2012, are the largest liability in a typical property-casualty (PC) insurer’s book and are tax deductible.Statement of Statutory Accounting Principles No. 101 (SSAP 101), Income Taxes, became effective in January 2012. We predict that SSAP 101 will decrease insurers’ loss reserves by reducing their tax incentives in overstating loss reserves.
