FRS102 First time adoption workshop

FRS102 is the new UK GAAP and by far the largest change in financial reporting for at least the last 10 years. FRS102 replaces all of the current UK accounting standards for medium and large sized entities.

This course will provide you with the answers to how FRS102 impacts your business and will allow you to calculate the impact on transition from old UK GAAP to FRS 102

Course Details

Melvin Leech – Technical Director
Andrew Kennon – Corporate Director

This interactive workshop will:

  • Guide you through the changes and highlight the key differences between UK GAAP and FRS 102.

  • Use a practical step by step case study to illustrate exactly how you convert your financial statements both at transition and on first year implementation.
