Manual - ICDS I : Accounting Policies

Under the Act, ’reasonable cause is an existing concept and has evolved well over a period of time conferring desired flexibility to the tax payer in deserving cases. The expression “reasonable cause” has not been defined and would have to be examined on a case to case basis.

Any change in accounting policy should be adjudged as ‘reasonable’ if it satisfies the criterion of AS 5. As per AS 5, a change in an accounting policy should be made only if the adoption of a different accounting policy is required by statute or for compliance with an accounting standard or if it is considered that the change would result in a more appropriate presentation of the financial statements of the enterprise.
