The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), through its notification dated 16 February 2015, issued Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS), which are converged with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).
In order to deal efficiently with amendments to IFRS on account of inconsistencies in the standards or to provide further clarifications, the IASB along with the IFRS Interpretations Committee considers interpretation issues on IFRS either as part of its annual improvement process or as specific amendments to IFRS. In 2016, as part of its process, the IASB issued amendments to certain IFRS.
With Ind AS being applicable to large Indian corporates from 1 April 2016, there is a need to keep Ind AS updated with revisions made to IFRS in order to maintain convergence. Accordingly, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) on 29 March 2017 issued exposure drafts on the following:
The last date for comments on the exposure drafts is 28 April 2017.
This issue of IFRS notes provides an overview of the amendments proposed by the ICAI.
