Analysis:

With the onset of Ind-AS applicability, subsidiary companies of Unlisted companies who are covered under Phase II of Ind-AS are now mandatorily required to prepare their financials under Ind-AS from Mar'18 year

Further to contrary, XBRL reporting has been amended to include 'all Companies who prepare their financials under Ind-AS” in the XBRL reporting ambit.

Based on the above, despite of Companies having:

  1. turnover less than Rs. 100 crores, or
  2. paid-up capital of less than Rs. 5 crores, or
  3. neither Holding Company is listed

will now be mandatorily required to file their annual financials with ROC in XBRL format if they have prepared their financials in Ind-AS for Mar'18 year.

Penalty for non-compliance:

If a company fails to file AOC-4 along with a copy of the financial statements before the due date, the company will be punishable with fine of one thousand rupees for every day during which the failure continues up to a maximum amount of Rs.10 lakhs. Further, the Managing Director, Directors and the Chief Financial Officer of the company, could be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to six months or with fine which will not be less than Rs.1 and upto Rs.5 lakhs.
