Online Course on UK GAAP for
Micro and Small Companies
(FRS 105 & FRS 102 1A)
2016 will see significant changes in financial reporting for the smallest companies as new and revised Financial Reporting Standards come into force.
The new standards are aimed at small companies and include a new category
of company, the “micro-entity”.
There are approximately 3 million companies in the UK that meet the thresholds so these changes are significant to a large number of business
owners and their advisors.
The intention of the new requirements is to reduce the financial reporting burden, but you need to start planning your transition to these new standards right away.
This course can help you do just that. It explores the background to the changes, examines the accounting and disclosure requirements and considers the potential wider implications and planning aspects that should ensure a smooth transition.
UK GAAP for Micro and Small Companies enables the learner to:
• Understand the new accounting regime for small and micro entities.
• See how financial statements should be presented under the new regimes
• Develop a plan for the transition to this new way of reporting
• Minimise the impact and associated costs of making the transition
