Accounting Policies of B N Rathi Securities Ltd. Company

Mar 31, 2015

Use of estimates

The preparation of Financial Statements requires estimates and assumptions to be made that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities on the date of financial statements and the reported amount of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Difference between the actual results and estimates are recognized in the year in which results are known / materialized.

Although these estimates are based upon management''s best knowledge of current events and actions, actual results could differ from these estimates. Any revision to accounting estimates is recognized prospectively in the current and future periods.

a) Change in accounting policy

Depreciation on fixed assets

The Schedule XIV to the Companies Act, 1956, prescribed requirements relating to depreciation of fixed assets till the year ended March 31,2014. From the current year, Schedule XIV has been replaced by Schedule II to the Companies Act, 2013. The applicability of Schedule II has resulted in the following changes related to depreciation of fixed assets.

Useful lives/ depreciation rates

Depreciation rates prescribed under Schedule XIV were treated as minimum rates and the Company was not allowed to charge depreciation at lower rates even if such lower rates were justified by the estimated useful life of the asset. Schedule II to the Companies Act 2013 prescribes useful lives for fixed assets which, in many cases, are different from lives prescribed under the erstwhile Schedule XIV. However, Schedule II allows companies to use higher/ lower useful lives and residual values if such useful lives and residual values can be technically supported and justification for difference is disclosed in the financial statements.

Considering the applicability of Schedule II, the management has re-estimated useful lives of all its fixed assets. The management believes that depreciation rates currently used fairly reflect its estimate of the useful lives and residual values of fixed assets, though these, in certain cases are different from, the lives prescribed under Schedule II.

The Company has used transitional provisions of Schedule II to adjust the impact of useful lives/ depreciation rates arising on its first application. If a fixed asset has zero remaining useful life on the date of Schedule II becoming effective, i.e., April 01, 2014, its carrying amount, after retaining any residual value, is charged to the opening balance of retained earnings. The carrying amount of other fixed assets, i.e., fixed assets whose remaining useful life is not Nil on April 01, 2014, is depreciated over their remaining useful life. The Company has adjusted Rs. 3,13,598 (net of deferred tax of Rs. 1,50,613) with the opening balances of retained earnings and i.e. Surplus in the statement of profit and loss. Had the Company continued to follow the earlier useful life, the depreciation expense for the year would have been higher by Rs. 4,64,211, profit before tax would have been lower by Rs.4,64,211 and the impact on net block of fixed assets would have been immaterial.

b) Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Company and the revenue can be reliably measured. The following specific recognition criteria must also be met before revenue is recognized:

Income from Brokerage: Brokerage income on securities is recognised as per contracted rates at the execution of transactions on behalf of the clients on the trade date

Other operating revenue: Other operating revenue includes income from business related to brokerage and is recognized based on the terms agreed with the clients when the services are rendered.

Interest Income: Interest income is recognized on a time proportion basis taking into account the amount outstanding and the applicable interest rate. Interest income is included under the head "Other income" in the statement of profit and loss.

Dividends: Dividend income is recognized when the unit holder''s right to receive dividend is established by the reporting date.

c) Fixed Assets

Tangible Assets:

Tangible assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Subsequent expenditure related to items of tangible assets is added to its book value only if it increase the future benefits from the existing assets beyond its previously assessed standard of performance. Losses arising from the retirement of, and gains or losses arising from disposal of tangible assets which are carried at cost are recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

f) Leases

A provision is recognized when the Company has a present obligation as a result of past event, it is probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. Provisions are not discounted to their present value and are determined based on the best estimate required to settle the obligation at the reporting date. These estimates are reviewed at each reporting date and adjusted to reflect the current best estimates.

j) Contingent liabilities

A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events whose existence will be confirmed by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events beyond the control of the Company or a present obligation that is not recognized because it is not probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation. A contingent liability also arises in extremely rare cases where there is a liability that cannot be recognized because it cannot be measured reliably. The Company does not recognize a contingent liability but discloses its existence in the financial statements.

k) Impairment

Assets are reviewed for impairment at each balance sheet date. In case, events and circumstances indicate any impairment, the recoverable amount of these assets is determined. An asset is impaired when the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its recoverable amount. An impairment loss is charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss in the period in which an asset is defined as impaired. An impairment loss recognized in prior accounting periods is adjusted/ reversed if there has been a change in the estimate of the recoverable amount and such loss either no longer exists or has decreased.
