Hi I am Kiran. I am preparing for CA exam. I want to know about cost accounting. May I know, Whether maintenance of cost accounting records and cost audit thereof, subject to threshold limits prescribed?
The Companies (Cost Records and Audit) Rules, 2014 has specified different products and services for which maintenance of cost accounting records and cost audit thereof, subject to threshold limits prescribed, is mandatory. In case a product is manufactured and 100% captively consumed for production of some other product which is also covered under these Rules and is subject to cost audit, then the cost of such captively consumed product would form part of the final product which is also under cost audit and as such a separate cost audit report for the captively consumed product will not be necessary. However, if the product is partly for captive consumption and partly sold, or if the product is 100% captively consumed for production of some other product which is not covered under these Rules, then cost audit would be applicable for such captively consumed product(s).
