About the course

It is crucial that you are aware of amendments made to accounting practices and standards for financial reporting.

Current UK and Irish GAAP has been in existence for a few years now and was recently subjected to the first triennial review, completed in December 2017. As a result, amendments arising from the triennial review are mandatory for accounting periods commencing on or after 1 January 2019. For most businesses, this will be from the 31 December 2019 year-end.

In this course, you will look at what has changed as a result of the triennial review and how entities will be impacted.

You will also look at the types of entities that can apply FRS 105, the disclosure requirements and the restrictions. Finally, it will look at the latest edition of FRS 102, which is the March 2018 edition issued by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC).
