Subject:    Final Report of the Committee constituted for formulating
Accounting Standards for the purposes of notification under section 145(2) of the
Income-tax Act, 1961.

       Section 145 (1) of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (`the Act') provides that the
income chargeable under the head "Profits and gains of business or profession" or
"Income from other sources" shall [subject to the provisions of sub-section (2)] be
computed in accordance with either cash or mercantile system of accounting
regularly employed by the assessee. Section 145 (2) provides that the Central
Government may notify Accounting Standards (`AS') for any class of assessees or for
any class of income.

2.     The Central Board of Direct Taxes (`CBDT') constituted a Committee
comprising of departmental officers and professionals in December, 2010 to inter alia
suggest AS for the purposes of notification under section 145 (2) of the Act.

discussion paper containing the main recommendations of the Committee was issued
in October, 2011 for inviting comments/suggestions from all stakeholders.

Committee recommended that the AS notified under the Act should be made

notification of AS on 14 issues under the Act and formulated drafts of AS on these
issues. The Committee has termed them as "Tax Accounting Standards" (TAS) to
