Part - II

Certification of Borrowal Companies by Chartered Accountants / Company Secretaries

i. Terms of reference for stock audit are to be spelt out clearly by the Banks, so that the Chartered Accountants can give focused attention to such areas.

ii. End-use verification of funds lent, if certified by Statutory Auditors, will be a good comfort to the Banks.

iii.  As Banks quite often deal with unlisted companies, disclosure requirements for such companies above a specific turnover may be made akin to those for listed companies, viz. consolidated balance sheet, segmental reporting etc. Information on large shareholding also will be useful.

iv. Further, the following additional certification either from Chartered Accountant or Company Secretary may also be thought of :-

(a) Company Directors not figuring in defaulters list (RBI / ECGC) / willful defaulters list etc.)

(b) Details of litigation above a specified cut off limit.

(c) A specific certificate, probably from the Company Secretary, regarding compliance with Sec. 372 (a) of the Companies Act.

(d) Details of creation / modification / satisfaction of charges on the assets of the company, position regarding insurance, show cause notices received, finds and penalties awarded.

v. As regards rotation of Auditors, for the sake of operational convenience, it is suggested they may be changed once every 5 years instead of every 3 years.

vi.  In order to avoid concentration, group companies may have different Statutory / Internal Auditors in case group turnover exceeds Rs.100 crores.
