Who Should Attend

This course is primarily designed for those who currently prepare their financial statements under UK GAAP and so will be required to transition to the new FRS in 2015. It is also suitable for those who voluntarily adopted IFRS in the past and may benefit from switching to the new UK GAAP or adopting the reduced disclosure framework which is already available to entities. It will also be of interest to accountants who want to keep up to date with financial reporting as part of their CPD requirements and auditors and analysts of companies who will report under this framework.
