Whether Going Concern assumption is appropriate means —


Scenario 1:- It appears that company will be able to continue for next 12 months and they are doing accounting as normal enterprise considering historical concept & depreciation


Scenario 2:- It appears that company wont be able to continue for next 12 months and they have shifted on liquidation basis
Now disclosure is different thing


Company has to disclose



  1. Principle events & conditions creating significant doubt over going concern
  2. Material uncertainty and related statements
  3. If going concern is invalid then express it in notes to accounts
