Download Indian Accounting Standard (Ind AS) 110 Consolidated Financial Statements
The objective of this Indian Accounting Standard (Ind AS) is to establish principles for the presentation and preparation of consolidated financial statements when an entity controls one or more other entities.
To meet the objective, this Ind AS:
(a) requires an entity (the parent) that controls one or more other entities (subsidiaries) to present consolidated financial statements;
(b) defines the principle of control, and establishes control as the basis for consolidation;
(c) sets out how to apply the principle of control to identify whether an investor controls an investee and therefore must consolidate the investee;
(d) sets out the accounting requirements for the preparation of consolidated financial statements; and
(e) defines an investment entity and sets out an exception to consolidating particular subsidiaries of an investment entity.
This Ind AS does not deal with the accounting requirements for business combinations and their effect on consolidation, including goodwill arising on a business combination (see Ind AS 103, Business Combinations).
An entity that is a parent shall present consolidated financial statements. This Ind AS applies to all entities, except a parent need not present consolidated financial statements if it meets all the following conditions:
(i) it is a wholly-owned subsidiary or is a partially-owned subsidiary of another entity and all its other owners, including those not otherwise entitled to vote, have been informed about, and do not object to, the parent not presenting consolidated financial statements;
(ii) its debt or equity instruments are not traded in a public market (a domestic or foreign stock exchange or an over-the-counter market, including local and regional markets);
(iii) it did not file, nor is it in the process of filing, its financial statements with a securities commission or other regulatory organisation for the purpose of issuing any class of instruments in a public market; and
(iv) its ultimate or any intermediate parent produces financial statements that are available for public use and comply with Ind ASs, in which subsidiaries are consolidated or are measured at fair value through profit or loss in accordance with this Ind AS.
This Ind AS does not apply to post employment benefit plans or other long-term employee benefit plans to which Ind AS 19, Employee Benefits, applies.
