Shouldn't the cutt off date be 31st March 2017 Why is it given 31st May 2017?
As per AS 4 - The events occuring after balance sheet date but prior to Date of approval of FINANCIAL STATEMENTS by BOD, if they r adjusting events then they can be recorded in the FS as on Balance Sheet date. So the cut off date is the date on which FS are approved by BOD.
No the accounting period ends as on 31.03.20xx. For adjusting events the conditions already exists on the balance sheet date. The events occuring after balance sheet date is just confirmatory in nature.so as to comply with the matching concept(as there were conditions for such event to be occurred as on Balance Sheet date) we adopt AS-4.
