illustrative tax considerations fundamental matters
Illustrative tax considerations – Fundamental matters

Base financial statements for computation of taxable income – Adjusted IFRS financial statements or Indian GAAP financial statements

Subsequent to the convergence to IFRS, for the purpose of computing the taxable income, Government would need to consider whether the taxable income will be computed based on the IFRS financial statements or financial statements prepared in accordance with Indian GAAP accounting standard (Part II standards).

Treatment of one-time adjustments

  • On transition to IFRS, certain one-time adjustments will have to be recorded in the financial statements

The Government would need to clarify the tax implications of such adjustments under the Act.

Phased adoption of IFRS

  • As per roadmap to convergence prescribed by MCA, some companies will mandatorily need to follow IFRS converged standards from 1 April 2011, while other companies will have to follow it from a later date or would have a choice to adopt early

The Government would need to clarify the inconsistency in income tax treatment created due to such a phased approach to IFRS

conclusion 1 2
Conclusion (1/2)
  • IFRS will be adopted in India by different companies in a phased manner
  • Complicated tax structure in India

- Regular Tax

- Current Laws

- DTC & Proposed Changes

- MAT

- Book Profit Based

  • Several Complex Issues under IFRS on recognition of Income and liability (expenses)
  • Both Corporate and Revenue department will need time & experience to gain clarity on various issues.
  • It appears that, in all possibility , even for financial and commercial reasons, companies may have to prepare two sets of accounts i.e IFRS and Indian GAAP, basically to have comparative data.
conclusion 2 2
Conclusion (2/2)
  • Current Indian GAAP and Tax Law are having Inter-face for several years. Law has been settled through series of court pronouncement. Even then large number of litigation are continuing worry for the corporates. Use of IFRS based financial statements for tax computation is bound to give rise to large scale tax litigation.

Given the above scenario , it will appropriate to recommend as follows

  • Tax and Taxable Income should be continued to computed based on Indian GAAP Accounts at least for 2-3 years.
  • Revenue Authorities should not take any cognizance of IFRS based FS for the purpose of tax proceedings.
  • The group should continue to explore IFRS based taxable Income computation example: IFRS – Indian GAAP – Taxable Income on revenue neutral concept.
annexure 1 1 2
Annexure 1 – (1/2)

Example:

Solution:

annexure 1 2 2
Annexure 1 – (2/2)
