The results of ouraudit procedures including the procedures performed to address the matters below providethe basis for our audit opinion on the accompanying standalone Ind AS financialstatements.
|Key audit matters ||How our audit addressed the key audit matter |
|(a) Revenue recognition for Engineering Procurement and Constructions contracts || |
|(refer note 21(c) of the standalone Ind AS financial statements) || |
|The Company's Significant portion of business is undertaken through Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts. Revenue from these contracts is recognized over a period of time in accordance with the requirements of Ind AS 115 Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Due to the nature of the contracts revenue is accounted over a period of time (using input method) which requires identification of contractual obligations Significant judgement with regards to determining contract costs incurred to date compared to estimated total contract costs the Company's rights to receive payments for performance completed till date changes in scope and consequential revised contract price and recognition of the liability for loss making contracts/ onerous obligations. Revenues and Profits for the year under audit may deviate Significantly on account of change in such judgements and estimates. ||Our audit procedures included the following |
|Revenue from such contracts amounted to Rs. 2590.29 crores (including Rs. 873.48 crores pertaining to discontinued operations). || We understood the Company's policies and processes control mechanisms and methods in relation to the revenue recognition for these contracts and evaluated the design and operative effectiveness of the financial controls from the above through our test of control procedures. |
| || We evaluated management's estimates and assumptions for a selected (risk-based method) sample contracts and inspected the underlying documents which form the basis of revenue recognition under the input method. We evaluated the management's process to recognize revenue over a period of time total cost estimates status of the projects and re-calculated the arithmetical accuracy of the same. |
| || Amongst others for a sample of contracts we performed the following procedures: |
| || Provision for liquidated damages: Our procedures involved discussions with management and project teams to understand the status of the project and on-going discussions with the customers in terms of likelihood of imposing any contractual penalties and analyzed the above through inspection of the relevant documents and correspondences. |
| || Contingency provisions: We understood the management's estimate and rationale for provision movement during the year. We analyzed the movement throughout the life of the contract and discussed progress to date with individual project teams to determine whether the remaining contingency was sufficient to cover residual risks of those projects. |
| || Assessment of costs-to-complete: We performed procedures on balance cost estimation tested the historical accuracy of previous forecasts and discussed variances with project teams. We tested that the costs incurred were accrued at year end and also tested the assumptions for balance costs- to-complete. |
| || We understood the management's assessment of the impact due to the lockdown and other restrictions caused by COVID-19 in relation to the above |
| || We performed analytical procedures and checked exceptions for contracts with low or negative margins loss making contracts/ onerous contracts contracts with Significant changes in cost estimates and Significant overdue net receivable positions for contracts with marginal or no movement to determine the level of provisioning required. |
| || We read and tested the presentation and disclosure of such EPC contracts in the standalone Ind AS financial statements. |
|(b) Impairment of investment in subsidiaries || |
|(Refer note 5 note 6 (a) and 40 note of the standalone Ind AS financial statements) || |
|During the current year impairment indicators were identified by the management on the investments of Rs 930.19 crores. Management's assessment for impairment of investments in subsidiaries requires estimation and judgement around assumptions used including the recoverable value of underlying tangible assets. ||Our audit procedures for investment balances included the following: |
|Furthermore the value in use is highly sensitive to changes in some of the inputs used for forecasting the future cash ows. Changes to assumptions could lead to material changes in the estimated recoverable amount impacting both potential impairment charges and also potential reversals of impairment taken in prior years. Accordingly this is considered as a key audit matter. || We understood the management's process of forecasting the future Cash flows evaluated the assumptions and compared the estimates to externally available industry economic and financial data wherever available and necessary; |
| || We assessed that the methodology used by management to estimate the recoverable value of each investment is consistent with accounting standards; |
| || We assessed the assumptions used by the management to determine the recoverable amount of the investment in subsidiaries; |
| || We compared the carrying values of the Company's investment in these subsidiaries for which audited financial statements were available with their respective net asset values and discussed with management about their performance and future outlook; |
| || We considered the potential impact of reasonably possible downside changes in these key assumptions as part of sensitivity analysis; |
| || We read and assessed the presentation and disclosure of such impairment in the standalone Ind AS financial statements. |
|c) Impairment of financial and contract assets: || |
|(refer note 7 and note 9(b) of the standalone Ind AS Financial Statements) || |
|Impairment of financial assets and contract assets is covered through Expected Credit Losses (ECL) method under Ind AS 109 and is expected to re ect the general pattern of deterioration or improvement in the credit quality of financial instruments. Impairment of financial assets is a key audit matter as the Company has devised a model to recognize impairment through ECL method using individual receivables or homogeneous group of receivables with similar credit risk characteristics. The calculation of the impairment allowance under expected credit losses is highly judgmental as it requires management to make Significant assumptions on customer payment behaviour and other relevant risk characteristics when assessing the Company's statistics of historical information and estimating the level and timing of expected future Cash flows. The timing of future Cash flows may also vary to some extent due to COVID-19. As at the March 31 2020 the Company recorded an impairment provision of Rs 286.68 crores for its receivables and unbilled revenue. ||Our audit procedures included the following: |
| || We evaluated the management's key data sources and assumptions used in the Expected Credit Loss (ECL) model to determine impairment provisions including any updates to such assumptions due to COVID 19; |
| || We understood the management's basis to consider the associated risks for identifying homogeneous group of receivables; |
| || We evaluated the process followed by the Company's for determination of credit risk and the resultant basis for classification of receivables into various stages; For a sample of receivables we tested the ageing of the receivables considered for impairment calculation; |
| || We assessed the completeness of financial assets included in the ECL calculations as of the reporting date; |
| || We considered the consistency of various inputs and assumptions used by the Company's management to determine impairment provisions; |
| || We assessed the adequacy of related disclosures in the notes to standalone Ind AS financial statements. |
We have determined that there are no other key audit matters to communicate in ourreport.
