Accordingly ouraudit included the performance of procedures designed to respond to our assessment of therisks of material misstatement of the standalone Ind AS financial statements. The resultsof our audit procedures including the procedures performed to address the matters belowprovide the basis for our audit opinion on the accompanying standalone Ind AS financialstatements.
|Key audit matters ||How our audit addressed the key audit matter |
|Recoverability of trade receivables (as described in Note 7.3 of the standalone Ind AS financial statements) || |
|The gross balance of trade receivables as at 31 March 2020 amounted to Rs38163 lakhs against which the Company has recorded expected credit loss provision of Rs6752 lakhs. The collectability of trade receivables is a key element of the Company's working capital management. ||As part of our audit procedures: |
| || We obtained an understanding of the Company's policies and processes relating to monitoring of trade receivables and review of credit risk of customers evaluated the design and tested the operating effectiveness of financial controls in this area relevant to our audit. |
|The Company has a formal policy for evaluation of recoverability of receivables and recording of impairment loss which is applied at every period-end. In accordance with Ind AS 109 the Company applies expected credit loss (ECL) model for measurement and recognition of impairment loss on trade receivables which is based on the credit loss incurred in the past current conditions and forecasts of future conditions. In calculating expected credit loss the Company has also considered customer accounts as well as experience with collection trends and current economic and business conditions and has taken into account estimates of possible effect from the pandemic relating to COVID -19. || |
| || Examined the management's assessment of the customers' financial circumstances and ability to repay the debt. |
| || Circularized requests for balance confirmations on sample basis and examined responses. |
| || Obtained evidence of receipts from customers. |
| || Inspected relevant contracts and correspondence with the customers on sample basis assessment of their creditworthiness with reference to publicly available information where applicable. |
| || Evaluated management's estimates and the inputs used by management for development of the ECL model analysis of ageing of receivables assessment of material overdue individual trade receivables including specific customer balances and sector exposure. |
|The Company's disclosures are included in Note 2.2(e) Note 2.2(r) and Note 7.3 to the financial statements which outlines the accounting policy for determining the allowance for doubtful debts and details of the period on period movement in gross and net trade receivables. || We tested the mathematical accuracy and computation of the allowances by using the same input data used by the Company. |
|Income Taxes - recoverability of deferred tax assets (as described in Note 8 of the standalone Ind AS financial statements) || |
|At March 312020 the Company had net deferred tax assets of Rs3746 lakhs which include Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) of Rs10889 lakhs paid in accordance with the income-tax provisions. MAT is recognized as deferred tax asset in the balance sheet based on a judgment that it is probable that the future economic benefit in the form of availability of set off against future income tax liability will be realized. Some of the Company's units are located in tax-free zone/ area from which the profit earned is not subject to income- tax and this results in the Company being subject to paying MAT. The recognition of MAT and its subsequent assessment of recoverability within the allowed time frame involves significant estimate of the financial projections availability of sufficient taxable income in the future and significant judgements in the interpretation of tax regulations and tax positions adopted by the management based on which we determined MAT to be a key audit matter. ||As part of our audit procedures: |
| || We evaluated the Company's accounting policies with respect to recognition of tax credits in accordance with Ind AS 12 "Income Taxes". |
| || We obtained an understanding of the process relating to recognition and assessment of recoverability of deferred tax asset and evaluated the design and tested the operating effectiveness of financial controls in this area relevant to our audit. |
| || |
| || We have evaluated the Company's assumptions and estimates in relation to the likelihood of generating sufficient future taxable income based on most recent budgets and plans prepared by management principally by performing sensitivity analysis and evaluated and tested the key assumptions used to determine the amounts recognized. |
| || We assessed the reasonableness of management's business plans considering the relevant economic and industry indicators. |
|The Company's disclosures are included in Note 2.2(f) and Note 8 to the financial statements which outlines the accounting policy for taxes and details of the period on period movement in deferred tax assets and liabilities. || |
| || We involved our tax specialists who evaluated the Company's tax positions. |
| || We have tested the mathematical accuracy of tax calculation and the MAT balance. |
| || We assessed the disclosures in accordance with the requirements of Ind AS 12 "Income Taxes". |
|Provisions and contingent liabilities including taxation related matters (as described in Note 26 of the standalone Ind || |
|AS financial statements) || |
|The Company is contesting direct tax indirect tax and legal cases and management exercises judgment in estimating the likelihood of any liability crystalizing on the Company. The evaluation of management's judgments including those that involve estimations in assessing the likelihood that a pending claim will succeed or a liability will arise and the quantification of the potential financial settlement have been identified as key audit matter during the current year audit. Evaluation of the outcome of the direct tax indirect tax and legal cases and whether the risk of loss is more likely than not or remote requires significant judgment by management. ||As part of our audit procedures: |
| || We evaluated the Company's policy and processes for direct tax indirect tax and legal cases. |
| || We evaluated the design and tested the operating effectiveness of the Company's controls over the assessment of litigation and disclosures thereof. |
| || We examined regulatory correspondence to assess development in all pending cases against the Company. |
| || We discussed the status and potential exposures in respect of significant litigation and claims with the Company's internal legal team including their views on the likely outcome of each litigation and claim and the magnitude of potential exposure and sighted any relevant opinions given by the Company's advisors. |
|The Company's disclosures are included in Note 2.2(o) 2.2(p) and Note 26 to the financial statements which outlines the accounting policy for contingent liabilities and details of pending legal and direct and indirect tax litigation disclosed as contingent liabilities. || |
| || For tax matters we involved our tax specialists to assess management's application and interpretation of tax legislation affecting the Company and to consider the quantification of exposures and settlements arising from the disputes with the tax authorities in the various tax jurisdictions. |
|Impact on adopting India Accounting Standard 116 Leases (as described in Note 3 and Note 32 of the standalone Ind AS financial statements) || |
|Ind AS 116 replaces the existing standard Ind AS 17 and specifies how an Ind AS reporter will recognize measure present and disclose leases. The standard provides a single lessee accounting model requiring lessees to recognize assets and liabilities for all leases unless the lease term is 12 months or less or the underlying asset has a low value. ||As part of our audit procedures: |
| || We assessed the management evaluation of the application of Ind AS 116 and tested the resulting impact on the balance sheet and income statement. We have assessed whether the accounting regarding leases is consistent with the definitions of Ind AS 116 |
|The Company has adopted Ind AS 116 "Leases" with effect from April 01 2019 using modified retrospective method and has recognised Right-of-Use (ROU) asset in Property Plant and Equipment (PP&E) amounting to Rs8422 lakhs and a corresponding lease liability of Rs8149 lakhs as on date of transition i.e. April 12019. Operating lease expenses which were recognised as other expenses in previous year are now recognised as depreciation expense for the ROU and the finance cost for interest accrued on lease liability in the financial statement for the year ended on March 312020. ||including factors such as lease term discount rate and measurement principles. |
| || We assessed the design and operating effectiveness of key financial controls pertaining to the determination of the Ind AS 116 transition impact disclosures. |
| || We assessed the Company's evaluation on the identification of leases based on the contractual agreements and our knowledge of the business. |
| || We read a sample of contracts to assess whether leases have been appropriately identified agreed the inputs used in the quantification to the lease agreements the discount rate applied and performed computation checks. |
|As at March 31 2020 the Company had ROU of Rs6906 lakhs and lease liability of Rs6966 lakhs. || |
|The implementation of Ind AS 116 is considered a key audit matter due to judgment required in the assumptions and estimates made related to assessment of lease term and determination of appropriate discount rates. || |
| || We assessed the discount rates applied. |
| || We assessed the disclosures with the requirements of Ind AS 116 including disclosures relation to transition. |
|The Company's disclosures are included in Note 2.2(m) Note 3 and Note 32 to the financial statements which outlines the accounting policy for leases and details of the period on period movement in ROU and lease liability. || |
|Accounting for the Business Transfer Agreement (BTA") and subsequent divestment (as described in Note 37 of the standalone Ind AS financial statements) || |
|During the year the Company transferred its warehouses and other assets of Logistics Park Business ('Business Undertaking") to some of its wholly owned subsidiaries ('WOS') by way of a Business Transfer Agreement (BTA) under slump sale arrangement. Accordingly the financial statements include gain arising on account of transfer of Business Undertakings under the BTA of Rs8858 lakhs net of cost of transfers. ||As part of our audit procedures |
| || We read the BTA SSPA and framework agreement. |
| || We evaluated management assessment in relation to conditions precedent. |
| || We obtained the bank statement to verify the receipt of consideration. |
| || We tested the reconciliation of the net assets disposed to underlying accounting records. |
|Further the Company entered into a framework agreement and securities subscription and purchase agreement ('SSPA") with BRE Asia Urban Holdings Limited ('Investor") for divestment of its stake in the identified WOS. The divestment is expected in a phase manner over the next 12 months subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions and achievement of certain milestone as prescribed in the transaction documents. || |
| || We evaluated the recognition of divestment gain and the gain recorded on fair valuation of the balance investment held by the Company in the divested WOS. |
| || We obtained the put option valuation report prepared by the valuation specialist engaged by the management. We have also involved our valuation specialist to assess the valuation methodology and assumptions used. |
|The framework agreement specified that if certain Conversion Conditions Precedent specified in the relevant SSPA are not satisfied within the period stipulated therein the Company together with the identified WOS shall acquire the debentures and equity held by the Investor in the specified WOS in accordance with the terms and conditions of Agreement and in the event of failure of which the Investor will be entitled to exercise the Investor's Put Option as set out in framework agreement. || We assessed the disclosures included in the financial statements in accordance with the applicable accounting standards. |
|On satisfaction of the condition precedent as specified in the relevant SSPA the Company has divested its control in certain WOS. The financial of the Company includes gain arising of Rs677 lakhs on account of equity stake sold and Rs75 lakhs on account of fair valuation of remaining equity stake in respect of these WOS. || |
|We considered the above transaction to be a key audit matter as these divestments had a significant effect on the Financial Statements. In addition Company is exposed to contingencies on account of the Investor Put Option which cannot be estimated with certainty and the assessment as to whether or not a liability should be recognised and whether amounts can be reliably estimated requires management to form significant judgment. || |
|The Company's disclosures are included in Note 37 to the financial statements which outlines the accounting policy for divestments and details of the said transaction. || |
