2. Recent accounting pronouncement

In March, 2018, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs issued the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) (Amendments) Rules, 2018 via notification dated 28 March, 2018 to further amend Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015, notifying a new revenue recognition standard Ind AS 115, ‘Revenue from Contracts with Customer’. This amendment replaces Ind AS 18, ‘Revenue’ and Ind AS 11, ‘Construction Contracts’. Also notifying an insertion of Appendix B, ‘Foreign currency transaction and advance consideration’ to Ind AS 21, ‘The effect of change in foreign exchange rate’, amendment to Ind AS 40, ‘Investment property’ and amendment to Ind AS 12, ‘Income taxes’. The amendments are applicable to the Company from April 01, 2018.

Notification of Ind AS-115 “Revenue from Contract with Customers”: The core principle of the new standard is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Further the new standard requires enhanced disclosures about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from the entity’s contracts with customers.

The standard permits two possible methods of transition: Retrospective approach - Under this approach the standard will be applied retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented in accordance with Ind AS 8-Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors. Retrospectively with cumulative effect of initially applying the standard recognized at the date of initial application (Cumulative catch - up approach). The effective date for adoption of Ind AS 115 is financial periods beginning on or after April 1, 2018. The impact on adoption of Ind AS 115 is expected to be insignificant.

Insertion of Appendix B to Ind AS-21, “Foreign currency transactions and advance consideration”: Appendix B to Ind AS 21, Foreign currency transactions and advance consideration which clarifies the date of the transaction for the purpose of determining the exchange rate to use on initial recognition of the related asset, expense or income, when an entity has received or paid advance consideration in a foreign currency.

The amendment will come into force from April 01, 2018. The Company has evaluated the effect of this on the financial statements and the impact is not material.

Amendment to Ind AS-40: An entity shall transfer a property to, or from, investment property when, and only when, there is a change in use. A change in use occurs when the property meets, or ceases to meet, the definition of investment property and there is evidence of the change in use. In isolation, a change in Management’s intentions for the use of a property does not provide evidence of a change in use. When an entity decides to dispose of an investment property without development, it continues to treat the property as an investment property until it is derecognized (eliminated from the balance sheet) and does not reclassify it as inventory. Similarly, if an entity begins to redevelop an existing investment property for continued future use as investment property, the property remains an investment property and is not reclassified as owner-occupied property during the redevelopment.’’ The Company is evaluating the requirements of the amendment and its impact on the financial statements.

Amendment to Ind AS-12: The amendment to Ind AS 12 requires the entities to consider restriction in tax laws in sources of taxable profit against which entity may make deductions on reversal of deductible temporary difference (may or may not have arisen from same source) and also consider probable future taxable profit. The Company is evaluating the requirements of the amendment and its impact on the financial statements.
