Notes to the Financial Statements for the year ended March 31, 2018

1.1 Corporate Information:

West life Development Limited is a public limited company having its registered office at Mumbai. The Company focuses on putting up and operating Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) in India through its wholly owned subsidiary Hard castle Restaurants Private Limited.

1.2. Summary of significant accounting policies: a) Basis of Preparation

The financial statements of the Company have been prepared and presented in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles in India (Indian GAAP) under the historical cost convention on an accrual basis. The financial statements have been prepared to comply in all material respects with the accounting standards prescribed in the Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2006 notified under Section 133 of the Companies Act 2013, read together with Rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules 2014 and Companies (Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2016.

The accounting policies adopted in the preparation of financial statements are consistent with those of the previous year.

(b) Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Indian GAAP requires the management to make judgment, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and the disclosure of contingent liabilities on the date of balance sheet and reported amounts of revenue and expenses for the period. Although these estimates are based on the management''s best knowledge of current events and actions, actual results could differ from the estimates.

(c) Revenue recognition

Revenue is recognized to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Company and the revenue can be reliably measured.

Sale of goods

Revenue is recognized when significant risks and rewards of ownership of goods have passed to the buyer, usually on delivery of the goods and are shown net of taxes.

Interest and dividend income

Interest income is recognized on a time proportion basis taking into account the amount outstanding and the rate applicable.

Dividend income is recognized when the Company''s right to receive dividend is established by the balance sheet date.

(d) Property, plant and equipment and depreciation

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, if any. Cost comprises purchase price and any attributable cost of bringing the asset to its working condition for its intended use.

Depreciation on Property, plant and equipment is provided on straight line basis based on useful lives of the assets prescribed in Schedule II of the Companies Act, 2013.

(e) Intangible fixed assets and amortization

Intangible assets are carried at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment losses, if any.

Software is depreciated over a period of 5 years.

(f) Impairment of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets

The Company assesses at each reporting date whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired. If any indication exists, or when annual impairment testing for an asset is required, the Company estimates the asset''s recoverable amount. An asset''s recoverable amount is the higher of an asset''s or cash-generating units (CGU) net selling price and its value in use. The recoverable amount is determined for an individual asset, unless the asset does not generate cash inflows that are largely independent of those from other assets or groups of assets. Where the carrying amount of an asset or CGU exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset is considered impaired and is written down to its recoverable amount. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset.

(g) Inventory

Inventory of traded goods is valued at lower of cost and net realizable value. Cost includes all expenses incurred to bring the inventory to its present location and condition.

Cost is determined on a First-In-First-Out (FIFO) basis. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price in ordinary course of business, less estimated costs of completion and estimated costs necessary to make the sale.

(h) Investments

Investments which are readily realizable and intended to be held for not more than a year are classified as current investments. All other investments are classified as long-term investments. Current investments are carried at lower of cost and fair value determined on an individual investment basis. Long-term investments are carried at cost. However, provision for diminution in value is made to recognize a decline other than temporary in the value of long-term investments.

(i) Foreign currency transactions

i) Initial Recognition

Foreign currency transactions are recorded in the reporting currency, by applying to the foreign currency amount, the exchange rate between the reporting currency and the foreign currency at the date of a transaction.

ii) Conversion

Foreign currency monetary items are retranslated using the exchange rate prevailing at the reporting date. Non-monetary items, which are measured in terms of historical cost denominated in a foreign currency, are reported using the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. Non-monetary items, which are measured at fair value or other similar valuation denominated in a foreign currency, are translated using the exchange rate at the date when such value was determined.

iii) Exchange differences

Exchange differences arising on settlement of monetary items or on reporting such monetary items at rates different from those at which they were initially recorded during the year, or reported in previous financial statements, are recognized as income or as expense in the year in which they arise.

(j) Income tax

Tax expense comprises of current and deferred tax. Current income tax is measured at the amount expected to be paid to the tax authorities in accordance with the Income-tax Act, 1961.

Deferred income tax reflects the impact of current year timing difference between taxable income and accounting income for the year and reversal of timing differences of earlier years. Deferred tax is measured based on the tax rates and the tax laws enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date. Deferred tax assets are recognized only to the extent that there is reasonable certainty that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realized. In situations where the Company has unabsorbed depreciation or carry forward tax losses, all deferred tax assets are recognized only if there is virtual certainty supported by convincing evidence that they can be realized against future taxable profits.

At each balance sheet date, the Company re-assesses unrecognized deferred tax assets. It recognizes unrecognized deferred tax assets to the extent that it has become reasonably certain or virtually certain, as the case may be, that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realized.

Carrying amount of deferred tax assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date. The Company writes-down the carrying amount of a deferred tax asset to the extent that it is no longer reasonably certain or virtually certain, as the case may be, that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which the deferred tax asset can be realized. Any such write-down is reversed to the extent that it becomes reasonably certain or virtually certain, as the case may be, that sufficient future taxable income will be available.

(k) Employee benefits

The Company is not covered under the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 and the Employees'' Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952. The liability towards employee benefits is provided based on contractual terms with employees, if any.

(l) Operating leases

Where Company is lessee:

Leases where the lessor effectively retains substantially all the risks and benefits of ownership of the leased assets are classified as operating leases. Operating lease payments are recognized as an expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

Where Company is lessor:

Leases in which the Company does not transfer substantially all the risks and benefits of ownership of the assets are classified as operating leases. Assets subject to operating leases are included in Property, plant and equipment. Lease income on an operating lease is recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss. Costs, including depreciation are recognized as an expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss. Initial direct costs such as legal costs, brokerage costs, etc. are recognized immediately in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

(m) Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing net profit or loss for the period attributable to equity shareholders by the weighted average number of equity shares outstanding during the period.

For the purpose of calculating diluted earnings per share, the net profit or loss for the year attributable to equity shareholders and the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year are adjusted for the effects of all dilutive potential equity shares, except where the results would be anti-dilutive.

(n) Provisions

A provision is recognized when the Company has a present obligation as a result of past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation and in respect of which a reliable estimate can be made. Provisions are not discounted to their present value and are determined based on best estimate required to settle the obligation at the balance sheet date. These are reviewed at each balance sheet date and adjusted to reflect the current best estimates.

(o) Contingent liabilities

A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events whose existence will be confirmed by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events beyond the control of the Company or a present obligation that is not recognized because it is not probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation. The Company does not recognise a contingent liability but discloses its existence in the financial statements.

(p) Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents for the purpose of cash flow statement comprise of cash at bank and in hand and short-term investments with an original maturity of three months or less.

(q) Employee stock option cost

In accordance with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Share Based Employee Benefits) Regulations, 2014 and the Guidance Note on Accounting for Employee Share-based Payments issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (''ICAI''), the cost of equity-settled transactions is measured using the intrinsic value method. The cumulative expense recognized for equity-settled transactions at each reporting date until the vesting date reflects the extent to which the vesting period has expired and the Company''s best estimate of the number of equity instruments that will ultimately vest. The expense or credit recognized in the statement of profit and loss for a period represents the movement in cumulative expense recognized as at the beginning and end of that period and is recognized in employee benefits expense.

Where the terms of an equity-settled transaction award are modified, the minimum expense recognized is the expense as if the terms had not been modified, if the original terms of the award are met. An additional expense is recognized for any modification that increases the total intrinsic value of the share-based payment transaction, or is otherwise beneficial to the employee as measured at the date of modification.

Employee stock compensation cost related to options granted to the employees of the Company''s subsidiary is recovered from the subsidiary.

(r) Measurement of EBITDA

As permitted by the Schedule III of the Companies Act, 2013, the Company has opted to present earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) as a separate line item on the face of the Statement of profit and loss. The Company measures EBITDA on the basis of profit from continuing operations. In its measurement, the Company does not include depreciation and amortization expenses, finance costs and tax expense but includes other income.

ii) Terms/ rights attached to equity shares :

The Company has only one class of Equity Shares having par value of H2 per share. Each holder of equity shares is entitled to one vote per share. The Company declares and pays dividends in Indian rupees. In the event of liquidation of the Company, holders of equity shares will be entitled to receive remaining assets of the Company, after distribution of preferential amounts if any. The distribution will be in proportion to the number of equity shares held by the shareholders.

In addition, the Company has issued total 54,350 equity shares (Previous Year 35,910) during the period of five years immediately preceding the reporting date on exercise of options granted under the employee stock option plan (ESOP) wherein part consideration was received in the form of employee services.

iv) Details of Shareholders holding more than 5% shares in the Company
