Please tell us if it is a Speculative Forward Contract or Non Speculative Forward Contract? Speculative Forward Contract should be carried (either as an Asset / Liability) based on the Forward Rate existing on the reporting date for the corresponding expiry date. (Corresponding Debit / Credit will go to Profit and Loss Account)
Note: This accounting treatment is now covered by AS 30 for all types of Forward Contracts, including Foreign CUrrency Forwards / Futures.
Non Speculative Forward Contracts are to be restated based Closing Spot Rate.
