Key Audit Matters

5. Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment wereof most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. Thesematters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a wholeand in forming our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on thesematters.

Key audit matter How our audit addressed the key audit matter
Deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary differences and the carry forward of unused tax credits and unused tax losses can be utilised. Our audit procedures to test the recognition of deferred tax assets included the following:
The Company's ability to recognise previously unrecognised deferred tax assets is assessed by the management at the end of each reporting period taking into account forecasts of future taxable profits and the applicable tax laws. As at March 31 2021 the Company has recognised total deferred tax assets of Rs. 17.61 Lakhs. Read and understood the Company's accounting policies with respect to recognition of deferred taxes and for assessing compliance with Ind AS 12 Income Taxes.
The recognition of deferred tax asset is a key audit matter as its 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 Company. Involved tax specialists who evaluated the Company's tax positions assessing the prevalent tax laws and compared the current position with prior years past precedents.
Assessed the consistency of data used in the deferred tax assets amount calculation with the financial budgets approved by senior management of the Company.
We compared the projections with past trends and enquired for the significant variations.
