Key Feature:-

1. ICDS applicable for income under head of PGBP or IFOS and not for maintenance of Books of Accounts.

2. In Case of Conflict between ICDS and Provision of Income Tax Acrt then the provision of Act prevail.

Main Aspect of Difference comparing to Income Tax Provision:-

1. ICDS -1

– ICDS Specifically De-recognized concept of “Prudence and Materiality”in selection of accounting Policy.

– Due to this under ICDS Market to Market Loss or any expected Loss is not allowed unless actually occurred or allowed by other ICDS.

2. ICDS -3

– Specifically focused on Percentage of Completion Method for Recognition of Revenue and Cost under Construction Contract.

3. ICDS -6

– In case of Non-Monetary items, Exchange difference arising on conversion shall not be recognized as Income or Expense.

4. ICDS 7

– ICDS allowed recognition of Grant on receipt basis if condition fulfilled, Unlike in AS which allows recognition of Grant on Mercantile basis where there is certainty that grant will received and condition attached complied.

5. ICDS 8

– Allow Subsequent Valuation of Security through Category wise and not for each security as allow in AS.


Security Price NRV Lower of NRV or Cost Valuation
A 100 90 90 AS
B 100 120 100 AS
Total 200 210 200 ICDS

> Note: –

However it is to be noted that there is no such difference in Accounting Standard and ICDS in case of ICDS 2/4/5/9/10.

>Major Points for Discussion:-

1. ICDS applicable to Non-Corporate assessee covered by Presumptive Taxation.(ICDS 3 and 4)

2. ICDS shall not apply while computation of MAT. How ever it shall apply while computation of AMT.

3. Net effect on income due to application of ICDS is to be disclosed under Return of Income and Tax Audit Report Form 3CD.
