No. 4/2/2014-CL-I
Government of India
Ministry of Corporate Affairs

5th Floor, “A” Wing, Shastri Bhavan,
Dr R.P. Road, New Delhi.
Dated: 14th October, 2014


All Regional Directors,
All Registrars of Companies,
All Stakeholders.

Subject: Clarification on matters relating to Consolidated Financial Statement.


Government has received representations from stakeholders seeking clarifications on the manner of presentation of notes in Consolidated Financial Statement (CFS) to be prepared under Schedule III to the Companies Act, 2013(Act). These representations have been examined in consultation with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) and it is clarified that Schedule III to the Act read with the applicable Accounting Standards does not envisage that a company while preparing its CFS merely repeats the disclosures made by it under stand-alone accounts being consolidated. In the CFS, the company would need to give all disclosures relevant for CFS only.

2. This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

Yours faithfully,

(KMS Narayanan)
Assistant Director (Policy)
