  9. 9. Cash Basis 9          Cash comprises cash on hand, demand deposits and cash equivalents (short-term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash, with minimum risk) Entity controls the cash (tax/other revenue collected, appropriated, grants receipt, loans) when it can use or benefit from it in pursuit of its objectives and can exclude or regulate the access of others to that benefit Temporary control for a period for money received or collected on behalf of another entity Recognizes transactions and events only when cash is received or paid by the entity Sources of cash, purpose for which used, balance & change over previous periods Bank overdrafts which are repayable on demand are included as a component of cash Cash movements between items within the agency does not form part of cash flow Expenditures of departments and entities from a single bank account of one Government each department/ entity will report on the face of statement of cash receipt and payment a separate column headed “treasury account” for appropriation from single account, classifying source of funding, purpose for which allocated and amount utilized for respective purpose, reappropriated within the department and inter-department from one classification to another Central Entity in charge of the Single Account shall recognize the cash receipt & payment on net basis

  15. 15. General Considerations contd 15  Entity amends presentation and Classification of FS,     Comparative Information for all numerical information of the previous period     reclassifies its comparative information of previous years If impracticable to reclassify comparative amounts, disclose reason E.g. major restructuring of service delivery arrangements; the creation of a new, or termination of a major existing, government entity; a significant acquisition or disposal with description, when required for understanding current FS Not figures of FS for years prior to adoption of the standard Unresolved legal dispute, notes of previous FS to be repeated with steps Identification of FS     FS distinguished from other information in the GPFS Each component of FS clearly identified Highlights & repeats name of the reporting entity & whether the FS is of individual or economic entity, reporting date & period of FS, reporting currency & level of precision followed Electronic Accounting Systems takes care of the requirement of this standard

Depts, agencies & GBEs    Controlled Entity operating under severe external long term restrictions excluded Wholly owned (>90% voting power) controlled entity need not present consolidated FS in the capacity of a controlling entity    Hence, reporting entity often notified by Legislation However, if such entity represent key sectors or activities of a government, it may present consolidated FS by notification of legislature notes & disclosures required by Part 1 of this Standard will also be presented on a consolidated basis additional statements & disclosures made under Part 2 of this Standard will be presented on consolidated basis
  18. 18. Consolidated Financial Statements contd. 18  Consolidation Procedures       Cash balances and cash transactions between entities eliminated, presented on net basis In case of large number of entities and foreign locations, transitional transfers may not be eliminated Consolidation of financial statements of varying reporting dates will make adjustment of significant cash transactions of entities after their reporting dates, before the last reporting date Difference will not be more than 3 months Uniform accounting policies for like transactions, if not possible, disclose items to which not applied Consolidation Disclosures    listing of name, jurisdiction of significant controlled entities reasons for not consolidating a controlled entity apply the transitional provision as all transactions not eliminated
