With UK GAAP gone, many entities have adopted FRS 102 as their new reporting framework. The framework is more international in its focus with some treatments being identical to IFRS. However, some treatments are simplified compared against IFRS and others remain the same as under UK GAAP. This session provides an overview of accounting frameworks in the UK, an introduction to the key accounting requirements of FRS 102 and an insight into the process of making the transition to FRS 102.
With UK GAAP gone, many entities have adopted FRS 101 as their new reporting framework. It offers the benefit of consistent internal reporting for those with parents under FRS 101 and provides disclosure exemptions in single entity accounts on the basis that the relevant disclosures are included in the consolidated accounts. This course provides an overview of the requirements of FRS 101, a summary of the disclosure exemptions, identifies the recent updates to FRS 101 and considers the practical implementation issues associated with its adoption.
From 1 January 2015 UK GAAP as replaced with a self-contained standard FRS 102.

With the replacement of UK GAAP with FRS 102, an organisation may be facing significant changes in its financial reporting. The additional challenge faced by many organisations is that there will also be a consequential change in how an organisation reports to a US parent. This course examines the similarities and differences between the requirements of FRS 102 and US GAAP. Understanding these will help you to develop an insight into the reporting issues for an entity involved with both FRS 102 and US GAAP.
Although there is a simplified framework for small entities, a micro entity requires further simplification of financial reporting. FRS 105 is designed to replace the FRSSE and provide that simplification. It reduces the content of a set of accounts, simplifies the format of those accounts, and removes complexity and unnecessary choice from the accounting framework. This course provides an overview of the key requirements of FRS 105 by considering qualifying criteria, account formats and key accounting requirements of FRS 105.

Revenue recognition is something that affects us all and in 2018 it is changing. There will be far more explicit consideration of components in a bundled package together with the associated timing and amount of revenue allocated to each component. The new standard may create change for an organisation not just in turns of revenue but also in terms of legal contracts, IT systems and interaction between the sales function and accounting function. This course provides an overview of the new revenue framework of IFRS 15 and considers the practical aspects of its implementation.
The two key players in a significant amount of financial reporting development are undoubtedly the IASB and the FASB. The course provides a comparison of the two reporting frameworks in terms of general reporting requirements and specific accounting treatments. This course will therefore provide a useful context with which to understand current development and create an awareness of the financial reporting challenges for groups with component reporting under each of the frameworks.
