The Company offsets tax assets and liabilities if and only if it has a legally enforceable right to set off current tax assets and current tax liabilities and the deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities relates to income taxes levied by the same tax authority.

In assessing the realisibility of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is probable, that some portion, or all, of the deferred tax assets will not be realised. The ultimate realisation of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the years in which the temporary differences become deductible. Management considers the projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. Based on the level of historical taxable income and projections for future taxable incomes over the years in which the deferred tax assets are deductible, management believes that it is probable that the Company will be able to realise the benefits of those deductible differences in future.

*Balances with banks on current accounts includes balance in cash credit facility account. No utilisation of cash credit facility as at March 31, 2021 (March 31, 2020: NIL).

(iii) Performance obligations

Information about the Company's performance obligations are summarised below:

Consumer platform

The performance obligation is satisfied at a point in time and payment is generally due within 30 to 90 days of completion of services and acceptance of the customer. In some contracts, short-term advances are required before the advertisement services are provided.

Enterprise platform

The performance obligation is satisfied over time and payment is generally due within 30 to 90 days of

completion of services and acceptance of the customer. In some contracts, short-term advances are required before the software development services are provided.

As the duration of the contracts for consumer and enterprise platform is less than one year, the Company has opted for practical expedient and decided not to disclose the amount of the remaining performance obligations.

Other operating revenue

The performance obligation is satisfied at a point in time and payment is generally due within 60 to 180 days of completion of services and acceptance of the customer.


Due to the adoption of Ind AS 115, there is no impact on the revenue recognised by the Company. Hence, the reconciliation of the amount of revenue recognised in the statement of profit and loss with the contracted price is not required.

27 Significant accounting judgements, estimates and assumptions

The preparation of the Company's financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying disclosures, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. Uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of assets or liabilities affected in future periods.

Other disclosures relating to the Company's exposure to risks and uncertainties includes:

- Capital Management (refer note 36)

- Financial risk management objectives and policies (refer note 35)

- Sensitivity analysis (refer note 28, note 35 and note 38)

This note provides an overview of the areas that involved a higher degree of judgement or complexity. Detailed information on each of these estimates and judgments is included in relevant notes together with information about basis of calculation for each of the line item in the financial statements. Areas involving critical estimates and judgments are:

(a) Impairment of non-financial assets

Impairment exists when the carrying value of an asset or Cash Generating Unit (“CGU”) exceeds its recoverable amount, which is the higher of its fair value less costs of disposal and its value in use. The fair value less costs of disposal calculation is based on available data from binding sales transactions, conducted at arm's length, for similar assets or observable market prices less incremental costs for disposing of the asset. The value in use calculation is based on a Discounted Cash flow (“DCF”) model. The cash flows are derived from the budget for the next five years and do not include restructuring activities that the Company has not yet committed to or significant future investments that will enhance the asset's performance of the CGU being tested. The recoverable amount is sensitive to the discount rate used for the DCF model as well as the expected future cash-inflows and the growth rate used for extrapolation purposes. These estimates are most relevant to goodwill recognised by the Company. Refer note 38 for further disclosures.

(b) Provision for expected credit losses of trade receivables and contract assets

Trade receivables and contract assets do not carry any interest and are stated at their nominal value as reduced by appropriate allowances for estimated irrecoverable amounts. Estimated irrecoverable amounts are based on the ageing of the receivable balances and historical experience adjusted for forward-looking estimates. Individual trade receivables are written off when management deems them not to be collectible. For details of allowance for doubtful debts please refer note 10.

(c) Defined benefit plans (gratuity benefits)

The cost of the defined benefit gratuity plan and other post-employment medical benefits and the present value of the gratuity obligation are determined using actuarial valuations. An actuarial valuation involves making various assumptions that may differ from actual developments in the future. These include the determination of the discount rate, future salary increases and mortality rates. Due to the complexities involved in the valuation and its long-term nature, a defined benefit obligation is highly sensitive to changes in these assumptions. All assumptions are reviewed at each reporting date.

The parameter most subject to change is the discount rate. In determining the appropriate discount rate for plans operated in India, the management considers the interest rates of government bonds in currencies consistent with the currencies of the post-employment benefit obligation.

The mortality rate is based on publicly available mortality tables for India. Those mortality tables tend to change only at intervals in response to demographic changes. Future salary increases and gratuity increases are based on expected future inflation rates for India. Further details about gratuity obligations are given in note 28.

(d) Intangible assets under development

The Company capitalises intangible asset under development for a project in accordance with the accounting policy. Initial capitalisation of costs is based on management's judgement that technological and economic feasibility is confirmed, usually when a product development project has reached a defined milestone according to an established project management model. At March 31, 2021, the carrying amount of capitalised intangible asset under development was INR 87.24 million (March 31, 2020: INR 48.00 million).

This amount includes significant investment in the development of platforms.

(e) Fair value measurement of derivative instruments

The Company uses valuation techniques including the DCF model for the fair valuation of derivative instruments recorded in the balance sheet. The inputs to these models are taken from observable markets where possible, but where this is not feasible, a degree of judgement is required in establishing fair values. Judgements include considerations of inputs such as liquidity risk, credit risk and volatility. Changes in assumptions about these factors could affect the reported fair value of derivative instruments. See note 44 for further details.

(f) Leases- estimating the incremental borrowing rate

The Company cannot readily determine the interest rate implicit in the lease, therefore, it uses its incremental borrowing rate (IBR) to measure lease liabilities. The IBR is the rate of interest that the Company would have to pay to borrow over a similar term, and with a similar security, the funds necessary to obtain an asset of a similar value to the right-of-use asset in a similar economic environment. The IBR therefore reflects what the Company 'would have to pay', which requires estimation when no observable rates are available or when they need to be adjusted to reflect the terms and conditions of the lease. The Company estimates the IBR using observable inputs (such as market interest rates) when available.

28. Employee benefitsA. Defined contribution plans Provident fund:

The Company makes contribution towards employees' provident fund. The Company has recognised INR 9.86 million (March 31, 2020: INR 8.97 million) as an expense towards contribution to this plan.

B. Defined benefit plans

Gratuity: The gratuity plan is governed by the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. Under the Act, employees who have completed five years of service are entitled to specific benefit. The level of benefit provided depends on the member's length of service and salary retirement age. The employee is entitled to a benefit equivalent to 15 days salary last drawn for each completed year of service with part thereof in excess of six months. The same is payable on termination of service or retirement or death whichever is earlier.

The present value of the obligation under such defined benefit plan is determined based on an actuarial valuation as at the reporting date using the projected unit credit method, which recognizes each year of service as giving rise to additional unit of employee benefit entitlement and measures each unit separately to build up the final obligation. The obligations are measured at the present value of the estimated future cash flows. The discount rate used for determining the present value of the obligation under defined benefit plans is based on the market yields on Government bonds as at the date of actuarial valuation. Actuarial gains and losses (net of tax) are recognised immediately in the other comprehensive income (OCI).

This is an unfunded benefit plan for qualifying employees. The scheme provides for a lump sum payment to vested employees at retirement, death while in employment or on termination of employment. Vesting occurs upon completion of five years of service.

The following tables summaries the components of net benefit expense recognised in the statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income and amounts recognised in the balance sheet for the gratuity plan:

Note: The Company has applied practical expedient in Indian Accounting Standard (Ind AS 116) notified vide Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2020 by Ministry of Corporate Affairs ('MCA') on July 24, 2020 to all rent rebate received as a direct consequence of COVID-19 pandemic. Accordingly, the Company recognized an amount of INR 4.78 million as other income. The Company has further got rent waivers for other premises taken on lease and it has resulted in cost saving of INR 3.30 million during the year ended March 31, 2021.

a. Capital commitments

As at March 31, 2021, the Company has commitments on capital account and not provided for (net of advances) of INR 9.51 million (March 31, 2020: INR 15.35 million).

b. Contingent liabilities

(i) Claims against the Company not acknowledged as debts includes the following:

- Income tax demand from the Income tax authorities for assessment year 2017-18 of INR 64.88 million on account of disallowance of bad debts written off, advances written off, amortization of goodwill and certain expenses under various heads as claimed by the Company in the income tax. The matter is pending before Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals), Mumbai.

- Income tax demand from the Income tax authorities for assessment year 2015-16 of INR 2.95 million on account of disallowance of availment of cenvat credit and write off of certain advances in the income tax. The matter is pending before ITAT.

The Company is contesting the demands and the management, including its tax advisors, believes that its position will likely be upheld in the appellate process. No tax expense has been accrued in the financial statements for the demand raised. The management believes that the ultimate outcome of these proceedings will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position and results of operations. The likelihood of the above cases going in favour of the Company is probable and accordingly has not considered any provision against the demands in the financial statements.

(ii) The Company has issued Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) amounting to INR 695.74 million (equivalent of USD 9.5 million) in favour of Axis Bank Limited, Singapore in lieu of term loan taken by Affle International Pte. Ltd, wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

Terms and conditions of transactions with related parties

The sale and purchase from related parties are made on terms equivalent to those that prevail in arm's length transaction. Outstanding balances at the year end are unsecured and interest free and settlement occurs in cash. For the year ended March 31, 2021 and year ended March 31, 2020, the Company has not recorded any impairment of trade receivables relating to amounts owed by related parties. This assessment is undertaken each financial year through examining the financial position of the related party and the market in which the related party operates.

32. Segment information

Ind AS 108 establishes standards for the way that companies report information about operating segments and related disclosures about products and services, geographic areas, and major customers.

The Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM) being the Board of Directors (Board) evaluates the Company's performance and allocates resources based on analysis of various performance indicators pertaining to advertisement and software development segment.

The “Consumer platform” segment provides mobile advertisement services to its customers and is a reseller of advertisement space for online publishing companies.

The “Enterprise platform” segment provides customized mobile app development services.

Transfer prices between operating segments are on an arm's length basis in a manner similar to transactions with third parties.

The accounting principles used in preparation of the financial statements are consistently applied to record revenue and expenditure in segment information, and are as set out in the significant accounting policies.

The management assessed that cash and cash equivalent, other bank balances, trade receivables, loans, other financial assets, trade payables, lease liabilities and other financial liabilities approximate their carrying amounts and fair value of the Company's financial instruments.

The fair value of the financial assets and liabilities is included at the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. Further, the subsequent measurements of all assets and liabilities (other than investments) is at amortised cost, using effective interest rate (EIR) method.

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair values

Receivables are evaluated by the Company based on parameters such as interest rates, specific country risk factors, individual creditworthiness of the customer and the risk characteristics of the financed project based on this evaluation, allowances are taken into account for the expected credit losses of these receivables.

The fair value of unquoted instruments is estimated by discounting future cash flows using rates currently applicable for debt on similar terms, credit risk and remaining maturities.

For other financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value, the carrying amounts are equal to the fair values.

34. Fair value hierarchy

All financial instruments for which fair value is recognised or disclosed are categorised within the fair value hierarchy, described as follows, based on the lowest level input that is insignificant to the fair value measurements as a whole.

• Level 1 : Quoted (unadjusted) prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

• Level 2 : Valuation techniques for which the lowest level inputs that has a significant effect on the fair value measurement are observable, either directly or indirectly.

• Level 3 : Valuation techniques for which the lowest level input which has a significant effect on fair value measurement is not based on observable market data.

The following table provides the fair value measurement hierarchy of the Company's assets and liabilities.

Valuation technique used to derive fair values

The Company's unquoted instruments is estimated by discounting future cash flows using rates currently applicable for debt on similar terms, credit risk and remaining maturities. The valuation requires management to make certain assumptions about the model inputs, including forecast cash flows, discount rate, credit risk and volatility. The probabilities of the various estimates within the range can be reasonably assessed and are used in management's estimate of fair value for these unquoted equity investments.

35. Financial risk management objectives and policies

The Company's principal financial liabilities comprises trade payables, other payables, capital creditors and employee related payables. The main purpose of these financial liabilities is to finance the Company's operations and to provide guarantees to support its operations. The Company's principal financial assets include trade and other receivables, and cash and cash equivalent that derive directly from its operations.

The Company is exposed to market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company's senior management oversees the management of these risks. The Company's senior management is responsible to ensure that Company's financial risk activities are governed by appropriate policies and procedures and that financial risks are identified, measured and managed in accordance with the Company's policies and risk objectives. The Board of Directors reviews and agrees policies for managing each of these risks, which are summarised below.

a. Market risk

Market risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of a change in market price.

(i) Foreign currency risk

Foreign currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of an exposure will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. The Company's exposure to the risk of changes in foreign exchange rates relates primarily to the Company's operating activities (when revenue or expense is denominated in a foreign currency).

b. Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk that counterparty will not meet its obligations under a financial instrument or customer contract, leading to a financial loss. The Company is exposed to credit risk from its operating activities (primarily trade receivables) and from its investing activities, including deposits with banks and financial institutions.

A counterparty whose payment is due more than 90 days after the due date is considered as a defaulted party. This is based on considering the market and economic forces in which the Company operates. The Company write-off the amount if the credit risk of counter-party increases significantly due to its poor financial position.

All the financial assets carried at amortised cost were into good category except some portion of trade receivables considered under doubtful category (refer note 10).

Trade receivables and contract assets

Trade receivables are typically unsecured. Credit risk is managed by the Company through credit approvals, establishing credit limits and continuously monitoring the creditworthiness of customers to which the Company grants credit terms in the normal course of business.

The Company is exposed to credit risk in the event of non-payment by customers. An impairment analysis is performed at each reporting date and as a simplified approach the Company provides for 0.5% of revenues and any amounts aged for more than one year and remaining uncollected. The estimate is based on lifetime expected credit losses and is reassessed periodically. Trade receivables disclosed in note 10 include amounts which are past due at the reporting date but against which the Company has not recognized an allowance for doubtful receivables because the amount are still considered recoverable.

However, the Company in current year have used a provision matrix method to measure the expected credit loss of trade receivables and contract assets and the provision rates are based on days past due for the customers. The calculation reflects the probability-weighted outcome, the time value of money and reasonable and supportable information that is available at the reporting date about past events, current conditions and forecasts of future economic conditions.

c. Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they become due. The Company monitors their risk of shortage of funds using cash flow forecasting models. These models consider the maturity of their financial investments, committed funding and projected cash flows from operations. The Company's objective is to provide financial resources to meet its business objectives in a timely, cost effective and reliable manner.

A balance between continuity of funding and flexibility is maintained through the use of borrowings. The Company also monitors compliance with its debt covenants. The maturity profile of the Company's financial liabilities based on contractual undiscounted payments is given in the table below:

None of those trade receivable past due or impaired have had their terms renegotiated. The maximum exposure to credit risk at the reporting date is the fair value of each class of receivables presented in the financial statement. The Company does not hold any collateral or other credit enhancements over balances with third parties nor does it have a legal right of offset against any amounts owed by the Company to the counterparty. For receivables which are overdue the Company has subsequently received payments and has reduced its overdue exposure.

Financial instruments and cash deposits

Credit risk from balances with banks is managed by the Company's treasury department in accordance with the Company's policy. Investments of surplus funds are made only with approved counterparties and within credit limits assigned to each counterparty. Counterparty credit limits are reviewed by the Company's Board of Directors on an annual basis, and may be updated throughout the year subject to approval of the Company's finance committee. The limits are set to minimise the concentration of risks and therefore mitigate financial loss through counterparty's potential failure to make payments.

36. Capital management

The Board's policy maintains a strong capital base so as to maintain investor, creditor and market confidence and to sustain future development of the business. The Board of Directors monitor the return on capital employed as well as the amount of dividend if any to shareholders.

For the purpose of the Company's capital management, capital includes issued equity capital and general reserves attributable to the equity holders. The primary objective of the Company's capital management is to maximise the shareholder value.

The Company manages its capital structure and makes adjustments in light of changes in economic conditions and the requirements of the financial covenants. To maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the dividend payment to shareholders, return capital to shareholders or issue new shares.

The Company monitors capital using a gearing ratio, which is net debt divided by total capital plus net debt. The Company includes within net debt, interest bearing loans and borrowings, trade and other payables, less cash and cash equivalents. The Company's policy is to keep the gearing ratio between 0% and 30%.

38. Business combination38.1 Business combinations under common control Scheme of amalgamation in accordance with previous GAAP

During the year ended March 31, 2017, the Holding Company has merged its fellow subsidiaries i.e. AD2C Holdings, AD2C India, Appstudioz Technologies into one merged entity, Affle India Limited under the court approved scheme of amalgamation in accordance with erstwhile applicable previous GAAP.

Business combination under common control has been accounted for using purchase method in accordance with previous GAAP as prescribed under court scheme instead of using pooling interest method as prescribed under Ind AS 103. Business Combinations as the approved court scheme will prevail over applicable accounting standard.

Accordingly, the Scheme was accounted for using purchase method in accordance with erstwhile applicable Accounting Standard 14 “Accounting for Amalgamations”. All the assets and liabilities of the Transferor Companies have been incorporated at fair values as at 1 April 2015 against the purchase consideration of INR 84.64 million which resulted in the Goodwill on amalgamation of amounting INR 59.24 million.

Goodwill acquired through business combinations have indefinite life. The Company performed its impairment test for the year ended March 31, 2021.

38.2 Acquisition of identified business of Vizury Interactive Solutions Private Limited

On September 1, 2018, Affle (India) Limited (“the Company”) acquired the Commerce Business (“Identified Business”) of Vizury Interactive Solutions Private Limited (“Vizury India”) for a consideration of INR 106.44 million (equivalent to USD 1.50 million at the exchange rate of USD1= INR 70.96) minus profit after tax of Vizury India for the period May 15, 2018 to August 31, 2018 of INR 21.37 million (equivalent to USD 0.30 million at the exchange rate of USD1= INR 70.96).

The Company acquired the Identified Business of Vizury India so as to continue the expansion of the consumer platform segment.

Assets acquired and liabilities assumed

In the previous year, the management of the Company had used services of an external independent expert to carry out a detailed Purchase Price Allocation (“PPA”) of the purchase consideration paid to the shareholders of Vizury India. Pursuant to such PPA valuation, conducted by an independent expert, the net consideration of INR 85.07 million had been allocated, based on the fair value computations, at the acquisition date, as an intangible asset, arising from this acquisition. Based on the PPA information obtained, the fair value of the identifiable net asset arising from the transaction are as follows:

38.3 Impairment testing of goodwill

Goodwill acquired through business combinations have indefinite life. The Company performed its impairment test for the year ended March 31, 2021. The Company considers the relationship between its value in use and its carrying value, among other factors, when reviewing for indicators of impairment.

The recoverable amount of the goodwill is determined based on value in use ('VIU') calculated using cash flow projections from financial budgets approved by management covering a five year period and the terminal value (after considering the relevant long-term growth rate) at the end of the said forecast periods. The Company has used long-term growth rate of 2% (March 31, 2020: 2%) and discount rate of 10% (March 31, 2020: 12.5%) for calculation of terminal value.

The said cash flow projections are based on the senior management past experience as well as expected met trends for the future periods. The projected cash flows have been updated to reflect the decreased demand for services. The calculation of weighted average cost of capital (WACC) is based on the Company's estimated capital structure as relevant and attributable to the Company. The WACC is also adjusted for specific risks, market risks and premium, and other inherent risks associated with similar type of investments to arrive at an approximation of the WACC of a comparable market participant. The said WACC being pre-tax discount rates reflecting specific risks, are then applied to the above mentioned projections of the estimated future cash flows to arrive at the discounted cash flows.

Discount rates represent the market assessment of the risks specific to each CGU, taking into consideration the time value of money and individual risks of the underlying assets that have not been incorporated in the cash flow estimates.
