                               PRESS RELEASE

  CBDT PUBLISHES DISCUSSION PAPER ON TAX ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

      The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has made public the
discussion paper on accounting standards, to be known as Tax Accounting
Standards (TAS), for feedback from all concerned. The discussion paper is
available on the following web-sites:




finmin.nic.in ; incometaxindia.gov.in ; www.irsofficersonline.gov.in ;

2.    The proposed TAS, while enabling smooth transition to International
Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), will provide certainty on accounting
issues for tax purposes as it removes alternatives and will cover all tax
accounting issues.

3.     The TAS, applicable only to computation of taxable income under the
Income Tax Act 1961, will be different from accounting standards issued by the
Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) and notified by the Ministry
of Corporate Affairs under the Companies Act 1956. However, separate books
of account are not required to be maintained under TAS, thus reducing
compliance burden on businesses.




4.     A Committee of experts from the government and professionals was
constituted by the CBDT in December 2010 to suggest accounting standards for
tax purposes that could be notified under section 145 of the Income Tax Act
1961. The Committee submitted its interim report in August 2011, suggesting
the above measures. At present, section 145 provides that the method of
accounting for computation of income under the head "Profits and gains of
business or profession" and "Income from other sources" can either be the cash
or mercantile system of accounting. The Finance Act, 1995 empowered the
Central Government to notify Accounting Standards for any class of taxpayer
or for any class of income.
