Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has notified amendment to Ind AS 21 (The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange rates) and Ind AS 115 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers) on March 28, 2018 as part of the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2018 effective from April 1, 2018.

Appendix B to Ind AS 21 “Foreign Currency Transactions and Advance Consideration” clarifies the date of the transaction for the purpose of determining the exchange rate to use on initial recognition of the related asset, expense or income, when an entity has received or paid advance consideration in a foreign currency.

Ind AS 115 - Revenue from Contract with Customers: The new standards replaces existing revenue recognition standards Ind AS 11 (Construction Contracts) and Ind AS 18 (Revenue).

Under Ind AS 115 revenue shall recognize when control over goods & services is transferred to customer and in respect of contracts when performance obligation is satisfied over a period, the revenue shall recognize over the period at transaction price. The core principle of the new standard is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Further the new standard requires enhanced disclosures about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from the entity’s contracts with customers. The standard permits retrospective approach in accordance with Ind AS 8 or retrospectively with cumulative effect of initially applying the standard (cumulative catch-up approach)

The Company is in the process of examining and evaluating the impact of the said changes on the Company’s financial statements.
