Issue no. 9/2016 | Transport, Logistics and Leisure
This month the Accounting and Auditing Update focusses on the transport, logistics and leisure sector and highlights key matters relating to accounting, financial reporting and regulatory areas relevant to this sector. This sector encompasses various sub-sectors. In this edition, we cast our lens on six sub-sectors: maritime, logistics, ports, rail, aviation and leisure.
For the sub-sectors discussed in this publication, the Ind AS guidance relevant to revenue recognition and property, plant and equipment is likely to throw up potential challenges following the adoption of Ind AS and our articles elaborate those implementation challenges.
The publication carries the results of a survey that we ran with a number of leading transport and logistics companies on the key regulatory changes that they face. These include Ind AS, the Companies Act, 2013, Income Computation and Disclosure Standards (ICDS) and proposed Goods and Services Tax (GST).
This publication also highlights direct and indirect tax issues, such as the treatment of service tax collected as part of gross income, ports facing ambiguity on claiming tax holiday and certain withholding tax issues, etc. Additionally, the article on GST highlights its expected impact on the supply chain, shipping, and logistics sub-sectors.
Finally, our publication carries a regular synopsis of regulatory updates including the guidance note on CARO 2016 issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and a summary of the clarifications given by the Ind AS Transition Facilitation Group in its second bulletin.
