    2. If your networth is greater than 500 crore for the respective preceeding 3 financial years, you have to prepapre your financial statements as per IND-AS for the next financial year 2016-17.
      2013-14 - NA ( Base year to calculate net worth)
      2014-15 - NA ( Base year to calculate net worth)
      2015-16 - NA ( Base year to calculate net worth)
      2016-17 - Applicable

  3. Sir,

    Is revaluation Reserve can be considered for calculation of Net Worth for applicability of Ind-AS? As per companies Act,2013 Revaluation reserve is not considered for computation of Net Worth.

  4. NO Revaluation Reserve is not created out of profits so you cannot consider it for net worth calculations
