This course is essential for those who are involved in the preparation and audit of small company financial statements.


Small companies are now getting grips with the new financial reporting regime - FRS 102 Section 1A for small companies which has replaced the former Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (the FRSSE).

This course will take you through the steps in producing accounts compliant with Section 1A of FRS 102 and the revised small companies regime in the Companies Act 2006. The course will be illustrated by example financial statements, suggested wordings of notes and balance sheet statements and short examples dealing with key issues relating to small companies. The course will also cover filing requirements and options, pitfalls to be avoided, Staff Education Notes, guidance and feedback from the Financial Reporting Council and the accountancy bodies.

The course will update you on the practical implications of the amendments to FRS 102 which were announced in December 2017. The principal effective date for these changes is accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019 with earlier application permitted in certain cases.
