Not Only loan Given to Related Parties.

All transactions with Related parties to be mentioned in Register.

Difinition of Related party is as per Companies act and not as per AS 23.

Section 209 (1) says maintaing cost records - It allplies to manufacturing unit and all this record are to be kept at plant where manufacturing activity is done.

This Record inclueds everything related to cost of manufacturing product i.e. Material,Labour and overhead and method of allocationg overhead etc.

It is also to be audited by Cost Accountants i.eI CWA

Thank you Ravi. but kindly explain in simple terms point 3(b)

 Section 297(2)(c) States that the board's sanction shall not be required in respect of a contract in which a director is interested where contract is entered into by a in banking or insurance company for any transaction in the ordinary course of business of such company with any director, relative, firm, partner or private company.

Simply it means that such contracts can be entered into by the company without prior approval of Board, and its particulars need to be mentioned in the register maintained under Section 301.

 

Further Section 209(1)(d) mandates the companiesin certain industries fulfilling certain criteria to maintain particulars relating to utilisation of material or labour or to other items of cost as may be prescribed. List of such industries is mentioned at http://mca.gov.in/MinistryWebsite/dca/mcaoffices/RecordRules44.htm

The audit of such cost accounts is not mandatory and is required to be conducted only if ordered by Central Government
