ICAI to work govt, industry to formulate accounting norms
April, 09th 2009
The ICAI today said it will work in close co-ordination with the government and industry in framing and revising accounting standards in the wake of the deferring of norms for provisioning of losses and gains on the basis of prevailing market prices of financial assets.
The ICAI had a meeting with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and discussions were held with its council members, ICAI President Uttam Prakash Agarwal said in a statement.
The institute had set up a working group for reviewing the accounting treatment of monetary items under the Accounting Standard 11, which deals with the provisioning of forex losses and gains on the mark-to-market (MTM) basis.
The statement added that the National Advisory Committee on Accounting Standards (NACAS) in a meeting held on March 24, was apprised of the issues arising in case of the amendment of AS11."The institute has played a proactive role in the matter (of AS11) so that problems of industry could be resolved," the statement added.
