IFRS now reality – Get Ready!!!

On February 16, 2015, the ministry of corporate affairs notified the Indian version of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), to be referred as Ind AS. 39 IND AS are issued aimed at convergence of the Indian accounting framework with globally recognised IFRS. It is not full adoption of IFRS, but only convergence.

These set of accounting and reporting standards is required to be applied by prescribed class f companies effective April 1, 2016, with a mandatory comparative period for the year ended March 31, 2016. So, essentially covered companies will be required to transition to Ind AS as on April 1, 2015 itself.
