On March 24th, 2021, MCA has introduced a new rule related to accounting software by introducing sub-rule (1) to rule 3 the companies (Accounts) rules, 2014.

The new rule mandates every company which uses ?Accounting Software? for maintaining books of account to ensure the below features in new accounting software with audit trail:

  1. Must have a feature of recording audit trail for each and every transactions
  2. Edit log for each change in books of account along with date stamp
  3. The audit trail must not be capable of disabling

In addition to the above, MCA has also changed the content of the audit report, where the auditor must need to comment as below:

?Whether the company has used accounting software with audit trail for maintaining its books of accounts which has below features?:

  1. Recording audit trail
  2. The feature has operated throughout the year
  3. The audit trail feature has not been tampered with
  4. The audit trail has been preserved as per the record retention rule

As we know most of the small and mid-size companies in India use traditional accounting software.

Considering the timeline given by regulator, it?s challenging for businesses to find alternative accounting software or approach their existing accounting software companies to develop this feature. Development of this magnitude may not be quick and easy from accounting software company?s side.
