Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters ('KAM') are those matters that in our professional judgment were ofmost significance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of the currentperiod. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalonefinancial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not providea separate opinion on these matters.
We have determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to beCommunicated in our report. For each matter below the description of how our auditaddressed the matter is provided in the above context.
|Key Audit Matter description ||How the scope of our audit addressed the key audit matter |
|1 Evaluation of Provision and Contingent Liabilities : || |
|As at the Balance Sheet date the Company has significant open litigation and other contingent liabilities as disclosed in note no. 34(a). The assessment of the existence of the present legal or constructive obligation analysis of the probability or possibility of the related payment require the management to make judgement and estimates in relation to the issues of each matter. ||We have reviewed and held discussions with the management to understand their processes to identify new possible obligations and changes in existing obligations for compliance with the requirements of Ind AS 37 on Provisions Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets. |
|The management with the help of opinion and advise of its experts have made such judgements and estimates relating to the likelihood of an obligation arising and whether there is a need to recognize a provision or disclose a contingent liability. ||We have also discussed with the management significant changes from prior periods and obtained a detailed understanding of these items and assumptions applied. We have held regular meetings with the management and key legal personnel responsible for handling legal matters. |
|Due to the level of judgement relating to recognition valuation and presentation of provision and contingent liabilities this is considered to be a key audit matter. || In addition we have reviewed: the details of the proceedings before the relevant authorities including communication from the advocates / experts; |
| || legal advises / opinions obtained by the management if any from experts in the field of law on the legal cases; |
| || status of each of the material matters as on the date of the balance sheet. |
| ||We have assessed the appropriateness of provisioning based on assumptions made by the management and presentation of the significant contingent liabilities in the financial statements. |
|2 Valuation of inventory: || |
|Inventory comprises of Raw Materials Finished Goods Stock in process and Stores and Spares. There is an inherent risk around the accuracy of the valuation of the closing stocks. ||We have reviewed the stock records and held discussions with the management with regard to determination of slow moving and obsolete items and valuation of realizable values of such items. We verified arithmetical accuracy of valuation records / reports. |
|Inventories are valued at lower of cost and net realisable value. These involve significant management judgement to determine the obsolete or slow moving items of inventory and to evaluate the realisable values. Further Amoxicillin Trihydrate is the main raw material for the Company which is partly imported and is subject to high price fluctuation risk as well as foreign currency risk. ||For a sample of inventory items we have verified that the First in First out (FIFO) Method for valuation in case of inventory is appropriate. |
|The volatility in the prices of Amoxicillin Trihydrate may significantly impact the valuation of not only Raw material but also other items of inventory. ||We have reviewed the price movement of Amoxicillin Trihydrate with respect to cost to the Company. |
|In determining the net realizable value the management uses data of sales of finished good available which is a management estimate. ||Compared such prices with the recent selling prices. Compared the value of Finished Goods with the last selling prices of the respective product to determine the basis of valuation adopted. |
|We have considered this as a key audit matter due to the significance in the amount of inventory and volatility in the prices of Amoxicillin Trihydrate. || |
|3 Estimated allowance of trade receivables: || |
|The Trade receivables forms a significant part of the Group's total assets. The estimated allowance of trade receivables is identified key audit matter due to the use of significant judgement and estimates with respect to the recoverability of overdue trade receivables. As detailed in note no. 52(b) of financial statements the management reviews and assesses the recoverability of the carrying value of all overdue trade receivables individually by considering the credit history including default or delay in payments settlement records and subsequent settlements. ||Our audit procedures in relation to the estimated allowance of trade receivables included: |
|Allowance for doubtful debts will be provided for the amount of trade receivables that are considered as irrecoverable. || Understanding how allowance for doubtful debts is estimated by the management; |
| || Testing the subsequent settlements of trade receivables on a sample basis to the source documents including bank statements and bank-in slips/ remittance advices. |
| ||Discussing with the management and evaluating the basis of trade debtors that are overdue and without/with little settlements subsequent to the end of the reporting period identified by the management and their assessment on the recoverability of overdue trade receivables. |

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone Financial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements canarise from fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in theaggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of userstaken on the basis of these standalone financial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:
Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalonefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatementresulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involvecollusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internalcontrol.
Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under Section 143(3)(i)of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company hasadequate internal financial controls with reference to standalone financial statements inplace and the operating effectiveness of such controls.
Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.
Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basisof accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures inthe standalone financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify ouropinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of ourauditors' report. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease tocontinue as a going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalonefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalone financialstatements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalone financial statementsthat individually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced. We considerquantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of our auditwork and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of anyidentified misstatements in the financial statements.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matters theplanned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have compliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with themall relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the standalone financial statementsof the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these mattersin our auditors' report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about thematter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonablybe expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
