Announcement on renumbering of already issued ASLBs
February, 28th 2013
Committee on Accounting Standards for Local Bodies
The Committee on Accounting Standards for Local Bodies (CASLB), since its inception, has
issued the following seven Accounting Standards for Local Bodies (ASLBs):
1. ASLB 1, `Presentation of Financial Statements'
2. ASLB 3, `Borrowing Costs'
3. ASLB 4,'Revenue from Exchange Transactions'
4. ASLB 5, `Property, Plant & Equipment'
5. ASLB 6,'Events after the Reporting Date'
6. ASLB 11, `Construction Contracts'
7. ASLB 12, `Inventories'
The Standards mentioned at sl. no. 2, 3, 4 and 5 above have been numbered based on the
sequence of issuing the Standards as per the decision taken by the CASLB earlier.
Subsequently, the Council of the ICAI has taken a decision that the endeavour of the CASLB is
to formulate the ASLBs on the basis of International Public Sector Accounting Standards
(IPSASs) issued by the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) of
IFAC. Therefore, in order to maintain consistency with the IPSASs, the number corresponding
to that of IPSAS should be given to a relevant ASLB. Accordingly, the following ASLBs are
renumbered as follows:
Old number New Number
ASLB 3, `Borrowing Costs' ASLB 5
ASLB 4, 'Revenue from Exchange Transactions' ASLB 9
ASLB 5, `Property, Plant & Equipment' ASLB 17
ASLB 6, 'Events after the Reporting Date' ASLB 14
ASLB 1, ASLB 11 and ASLB 12 have already been numbered according to the new numbering
