IFRS Standards - International Financial Reporting Standards - EY - India.

Companies should use the additional time to prepare fully for Ind AS and update finance systems. India's commitment to convergence with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") moved a step closer with the publication of 35 Indian IFRS standards ("Ind AS") by the Ministry for Corporate Affairs (MCA) in late February 2011. However, Ind AS are different from IFRS in several important areas. All companies are likely to be affected by changes in respect of first-time adoption and presentation: a high level summary to Ind AS can be found here . A detailed guide to Ind AS is forthcoming. It will take some time for companies to analyze these changes. Furthermore, the respective bodies need to decide whether interpretations on leasing and infrastructure would be ultimately included in Ind AS, and how companies reporting under Ind AS will be taxed.

India has now finally opened a new chapter in its accounting reforms initiative with the formal notification of Indian Accounting Standards (Ind-AS) issued by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) on 20 February 2015. Nearly 39 new accounting standards have been notified bringing them in convergence with the globally recognised International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Even though most of Ind-AS are very close to IASB IFRS, there are few areas where MCA has carve-outs from principles laid down in IASB IFRS.

Transition to Ind-AS is not a mere accounting change but has significant business consequences like: Modification to Transaction modules required in Corporate IT system.

Many countries have perceived the relevance of adopting BEPS as these reports include recommendations for significant changes in key elements of the international tax architecture. India is actively following the BEPS recommendations and has been bringing amendments in the domestic law to be in line with BEPS regulations. A number of proposals in Indian Finance Act, 2016, are influenced from the recommendations emanating from the final reports of the OECD under its Action Plan on BEPS.

These include implementation of Master File and Country-by-Country (CbC) Reporting ( in compliance with Action 13), introduction of equalization levy which requires withholding on gross basis for all payments in relation to certain specified digital services (Action 1) and a “Patent Box” tax regime for royalty income (Action 5).

Take a closer look: Health Care Industry | Health Care Sector - EY - India. Health care around the globe is embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime transformation — the move to “Health 2.0,” the consumer-centric, outcomes-driven, prevention-focused future of health care. There are two catalysts for this shift. First, with aging populations and emerging market growth, chronic disease is becoming a global epidemic and driving health care cost inflation to unsustainable levels. To tame costs, payers and governments are realigning incentives around value and outcomes. At the same time, health is finally entering the digital age — unlocking information, empowering patients, enabling real-time analytics and bringing much-needed focus on prevention.

Budget 2016: Smart funding for Smart City initiatives - EY - India.

Business Today By Shrinivas Kowligi Partner, Government and Transaction Advisory Services, EY India Many 'Smart City Watchers' (a catchphrase for all those who are following India's Smart City Mission closely) may have been dismayed by the absence of even mention of core urban sector schemes in the Finance Minister's speech. They can take heart that the Union Budget FY 16-17's allocation of Rs. 7296 Cr for Smart City Mission and AMRUT finds mention in the annex, and it is just marginally higher than the previous year. GoI's Smart City Mission and AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation) are the two flagship schemes in the urban sector, which support creation of world-class urban environments in select cities to make them competitive, and for a larger set of cities and towns target creation of basic infrastructure services in water supply, sanitation and transport.

These two complement the Swacch Bharat Mission and other schemes.
