Accounting Standards Board The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India 3rd November, 2020
Sub: Exposure Draft of upgraded Accounting Standards for Public Comments
The Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS), as notified by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in February, 2015, and as amended from time to time are applicable to the specified class of companies as per Ind AS Roadmap. Accounting Standards notified under Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules 2006 and those issued by the ICAI are applicable to entities to whom Ind AS are not applicable. However, on the basis of the discussions held at various standard setting forums, such as, NACAS (now replaced by NFRA), Ministry of Corporate Affairs, and Accounting Standards Board (ASB) of ICAI, it has been decided to revise Accounting Standards (AS). Accordingly, ASB has initiated the process of revision of these standards which will be applicable to all entities to whom Ind AS are not applicable. While formulating these Accounting Standards, the ASB decided to maintain the consistency with the numbering of Standards of Ind AS numbering.
In this direction, the Exposure Draft of revised AS 21, The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates, has been issued by the ASB for comments with the last date being December 3, 2020, which can be assessed at the below link: https://www.icai.org/resource/61666asb031120.pdf
