Description

CPD online course
Category:  
Financial reporting

Compared to existing UK GAAP, FRS 102 removes 90% of content. In some ways this is good, but it involves you exercising more professional judgement because there is less guidance to follow and more situations where you have to look beyond FRS 102 to identify appropriate treatments.

This course enables you to:

Identify the consequences for your organisation of adopting a framework with 90% less content.  Discuss with your clients or organisation the practical aspects of applying the rules of FRS 102.  Consider some of the more generic and contextual issues of working with FRS 102.
