In case the entity has given out advances to the suppliers, you can consider this checklist to verify whether they are true and fair or not.

  • Obtain schedule of debit balances in trade payables’ account and pay particular attention to the age of the balances. Also scrutinise the Bought ledger.
  • Enquiry should be made for long unadjusted outstandings and check as to whether any of them would require provisioning.
  • Examine that the advances have not been shown as deposits in balance sheet as per Section 143(1) of the Companies Act, 2013.
  • Confirmation of balances should be obtained and reconciliation be done in case of any discrepancies.
