In this month’s call, we aim to cover following topics:
Ind AS 21, The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates
An entity may carry on foreign activities in two ways. It may have transactions in foreign currencies or it may have foreign operations. In addition, an entity may present its financial statements in a foreign currency. The objective of this standard is to prescribe how to include foreign currency transactions and foreign operations in the financial statements of an entity and how to translate financial statements into a presentation currency.
The principal issues are which exchange rate(s) to use and how to report the effects of changes in exchange rates in the financial statements.
On the call, we will examine the key requirements of the Ind AS 21 along with practical insights into some of the implementation issues when transitioning from current Indian GAAP.
