Key audit matter

How our audit addressed the key audit matter


Refer note 2.9 for accounting policy and note 12 for financial disclosures in relation to inventory.

At the Standalone Balance Sheet dated 30 June 2021, the Company held inventories comprising of raw materials and components, finished goods, work-in-progress and stores and spares worth X 2,051 millions detailed in note 12 to the accompanying standalone financial statements.

During the year ended 30 June 2021, the management has performed 100% physical verification for the inventory between 28 June 2021 and 15 July 2021 in multiple intervals with the assistance of management experts and has performed roll forward/roll back workings based on system generated reports.

The raw material and other components of inventory are valued based on weighted average cost. The Company follows standard costing for Hard Metal Products segment and actual costing for Machining Solutions Group segment to arrive at the inventory value. At the end of each reporting period, price variance and various production related overheads are allocated on actual basis and manually adjusted, as necessary, to value the inventory.

Owing to its nature, with respect to manufacture of engineering products specific to the needs of the customers, valuation of inventory involves preparation of specific bill of materials (BOM) for each product being manufactured.

In addition to the above, the complexities involved in this assessment include:

• Identification of products where specific production overheads and other allocations such as labour cost, depreciation on machineries, etc. to be added to the cost of inventory.

Our audit procedures around inventory to assess valuation and

allowance for inventories included, but were not limited to the following:

Existence, Completeness, Cut-off and Accuracy of Inventory:

• Obtained understanding of management process of inventory management and inventory physical verification performed at various intervals during the year and near to the reporting date;

• Evaluated the design effectiveness of controls over inventory management process/inventory physical verification and tested key controls for their operating effectiveness;

• Observed physical count carried out by the management.

• Obtained the report of the expert and verified the treatment of count difference in the books of accounts. Independently verified the physical quantities of inventory on test check basis to the physical count report provided by the management and performed roll back procedures from date our physical verification till the balance sheet date.

• On test check basis, tested the roll forward/back procedures from the date of management count to the balance sheet date.

• Performed cut-off procedures to ensure completeness of the inventory recorded in the books of accounts and completeness of goods-in-transit as at reporting date.

Valuation of inventory:

• Obtained an understanding of the management’s process of valuation of inventory.

• Assessment of the completion percentage of products.

• Allocation of price variance on raw materials to inventories in work-in-progress and finished goods.

The management of the Company reviews the list of aged stocks and provides for aged inventory basis policy set forth by the management. Inventories of general use are reviewed further and any provision on these stocks are reversed. Further, at the end of each reporting period, the management of the Company also assesses whether there is any objective evidence that net realisable value of any item of inventory is below the carrying value. If so, such inventories are written down to their net realizable value in accordance with Ind AS 2, Inventories. Such specific identification performed by management to ascertain slow moving and obsolete inventories, and assessment of net realisable value of such slow moving and obsolete inventory items require significant judgement and estimation.

Considering the complexities and materiality of amounts involved, this matter is considered to be a key audit matter for current year audit.

controls around valuation including estimates such as stage of completion, overhead computations, and determination of net realizable value of inventory items.

• Discussed with management the rationale supporting assumptions and estimates used in carrying out the inventory valuation, and corroborated the same to our understanding of the business.

• On a sample basis, recomputed the cost of the inventory by applying management’s valuation model, testing underlying cost of acquisition of raw materials consumed, and testing overheads and labour cost allocation to such inventory items. This also included testing of BOM on sample basis for specialised inventory to ensure the BOM is approved as the internal process of the Company.

• Evaluated the appropriateness of the Company’s accounting policy and valuation method of inventory in accordance with the accounting standards.

Inventory allowance:

Obtained and understood management process for identification of slow moving, non-moving or obsolete inventories and ensured that the same is consistently applied.

Performed an independent analysis of the ageing of inventory line items leading to specific inquiries with the management to ensure the completeness of the inventory identified as slow moving, nonmoving and obsolete.

On sample basis, tested the ageing of inventory items obtained through system reports, as applicable.

For slow and non-moving inventories as at 30 June 2021 identified by the management, recomputed the allowance created by the management using management’s model which has been consistently applied. Further, tested the net realisable value of finished goods inventory on a sample basis to average of 6 months historical selling prices less costs to sell, to identify allowance required, if any, for finished goods.

Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit ofthe Financial Statements

10. Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with Standards on Auditing will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements.

11. As part of an audit in accordance with Standards on Auditing, we exercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

• Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, orthe override of internal control;

• Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section 143(3)(i) of the Act, we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the Company has adequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements in place and the operating effectiveness of such controls;

• Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management;

• Conclude on the appropriateness of management’s use of the going concern basis of accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to the related disclosures in the financial statements or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to modify our

opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor’s report. However, future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern;

• Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the financial statements, including the disclosures, and whether the standalone financial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation;

12. We communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, including any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during ouraudit.

13. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence, and to communicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on our independence, and where applicable, related safeguards.

14. From the matters communicated with those charged with governance, we determine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the standalone financial statements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditor’s report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when, in extremely rare circumstances, we determine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
