(2) Where the financial year of a subsidiary does not coincide with that of the holding company, the group accounts shall, unless the registrar on the application or with the consent of the holding company’s directors otherwise directs, deal with the subsidiary’s state of affairs as at the end of its financial year ending with or last before that of the holding company, and with the subsidiary’s profit or loss for that financial year.
(3) Without prejudice to subsection (1), the group accounts, if prepared as consolidated accounts shall comply with the requirements of the Sixth Schedule, so far as applicable thereto, and if not so prepared shall give the same or equivalent information: Provided that the registrar may, on the application or with the consent of a company’s directors, modify the said requirements in relation to that company for the purpose of adapting them to the circumstances of the company
