About this course

UK and Ireland GAAP are about to experience some changes due to the FRC’s periodic review of accounting standards, which will be significant in key areas such as lease accounting and revenue recognition. In addition, it's expected that small entities preparing accounts under the presentation and disclosure requirements of FRS 102, Section 1A will need to make additional disclosure requirements.

Almost all entities that prepare financial statements under FRS 102 and FRS 105 will be affected by these major changes. There will also be changes to the filing requirements at Companies House, which will need to be communicated to clients so that they're up to date with legislative developments in addition to the changes to accounting standards.

All AAT Licensed Accountants and members dealing with the preparation of financial statements under UK and Ireland GAAP will need to be aware of the changes that are about to be made to be able to advise clients and company directors as to the effect these changes will have.

With numerous changes currently being proposed by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC), there’s no better time to ensure you’re completely up to date on accounting standards.
