Dear Professional friends

As per AS 18 available on icai.com, AS 18 is applicable to following companies:
1.       Enterprises whose equity or debt securities are listed whether in India or outside India.
2.       Enterprises which are in the process of listing their equity or debt securities as evidenced by the board of directors’ resolution in this regard.

9.       Holding and subsidiary enterprises of any one of the above at any time during the accounting period.
 
The enterprises which do not fall in any of the above categories are not required to apply this Standard.

Mr. Aditya

thanks for reply.

My Statutory Auditor says AS 18 is applicable to all the Companies. My company have turnover less than 50 crores and no borrowings. We are neither listed  nor a bank nor Financial institution nor insurance business nor we are subsiduary of any company.

Then is AS 18 is applicable to us. Our Auditors says it is applicable.

Please provide your opinion.

Regards

Malav

Your Statutory Auditor is correct in saying that AS 18 is applicable. As per companies accounting standard rules 2006, AS 18 is applicable for all the companies, Which is in contradiction of AS 18. Users of account is restricted in case of level 2 and level 3 enterprise, but still you will be requiring to diclose as it is mandated by Companies rule.
