The objective of Ind AS 108, Operating Segments, is that an entity shall disclose information to enable users of its financial statements to evaluate the nature and financial effects of the business activities in which it engages and the economic environments in which it operates. This standard provides guidance for entities to identify and report information about their operating segments. An operating segment is a component of a company that engages in business activities that generate revenue and incur expenses, whose operating results are regularly reviewed by the company’s chief operating decision maker (CODM), for which discrete financial information is available. A checklist can be a useful tool to ensure that all necessary disclosures are made in accordance with Ind AS 108. Below is an illustrative checklist that entities may use to comply with Ind AS 108 requirements.
