Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) are based on the IFRS Standards issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) of IFRS Foundation.

The Indian stakeholders’ knowledge of the preparations needed for Ind AS implementation in accordance with adherence to global timelines is also helpful.
Recently, the IASB has issued the following Exposure Draft for public comments:
Exposure Draft on International Tax Reform- Pillar Two Model Rules (proposed amendments to IAS 12)
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released its Pillar Two model rules in December 2021, which implement a top-up tax system to implement a global minimum tax for large multinational enterprises. IASB released the aforementioned Exposure Draft in response to concerns regarding the accounting for deferred taxes uncertainty brought on by the rules and the urgent need for clarity in light of the impending enactment of tax law to implement the rules in some jurisdictions. The ideas in this Exposure Draft would establish a temporary exemption from the targeted disclosure requirements and the accounting for deferred taxes resulting from the application of the aforementioned rules.
