Course Overview

FRS 102 – the new UK GAAP is the biggest change in financial reporting in a generation. Almost all UK companies and other entities have had to adopt this new standard, including small entities previously reporting under the FRSSE. Attending this course will give you a complete understanding of the concepts and principles of the new UK GAAP as well as explaining the additional disclosure requirements when you produce the first set of FRS 102 financial statements for your company. The course will also explore the options available to subsidiaries of groups reporting under IFRS.

This seminar will:

  • Inform you of the recent changes to the Companies Act and regulations including the new options when filing the accounts with the Registrar of Companies
  • Guide you through all the changes, highlighting the key differences between old UK GAAP and new UK GAAP using practical worked examples
  • Look at the implications of FRS 102 on loan agreements, distributable profits and profit related pay.
  • Explain the new approach to accounting for financial instruments, recognising derivatives and deciding whether hedge accounting is appropriate.
  • Provide practical guidance on the disclosures required in a set of FRS 102 financial statements and the judgements that some entities will need to make.
  • Discuss the draft amendments in FRED 67, which propose improvements and clarifications to the standard.
