Who should attend

The course is particularly designed to help both preparers, and users of local and listed company accounts, to understand the changes being introduced to their annual reporting. It should also help those recently qualified accountants brought up on IFRS to understand some of the key differences from full IFRS.

Course overview

The list of topics will vary according to the latest pronouncements emerging from the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) but will include the following:

The application of the FRSs in the previous 12 months:

  • FRS 102 The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland
  • FRS 102 Section 1A - the small entity regime
  • FRS 105 - the micro entity regime
  • Brief review of the three new IFRS standards - IFRS 9 Financial instruments, IFRS 15
  • Revenue from contracts with customers and IFRS 16 Leases
  • Review of changes in financial reporting in the last 12 months

Key learning outcomes

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Have a clearer understanding of how the local standards FRS 102 and 105 are working in practice
  • Have an awareness of the latest changes to both standards from January 2019
  • Have a very broad overview of the new IFRSs
