In the Abridged Cost Statement (Para 5) of the Cost Audit Report pertaining to my company, I want to report more than 10 numbers of materials / utilities / industry specific operating expenses? However, the taxonomy supports only reporting 10 numbers of materials / utilities / industry specific operating expenses in the corresponding link tables? How do I report additional cost elements under these heads?
The materials/utilities/industry specific operating expenses link tables in the Abridged Cost Statement have a provision for reporting only 10 different cost elements respectively. In case, a company has more than 10 numbers of materials/utilities/industry specific operating expenses, 9 nos. of such materials/utilities/industry specific operating expenses, whose value is in descending order need to be reported separately and the balance may be clubbed together as “others” so as to ensure that the total value of such materials/utilities or industry specific operating expenses is equal to the materials cost or the utilities cost or the industry specific operating cost [as the case may be] reported in the main part of the Abridged Cost Statement. Since the “others” category would be an amalgamation of different elements, the unit, quantity and rate in the “others” category may be kept blank.
