Technical factsheet: FRS 102 – transition issues for medium-sized and large companies
FRS 102, The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland, is based on the principles found in International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), specifically IFRS for SMEs.
Convergence of financial reporting standards is at last in sight with the publishing by the FRC of FRS 100, FRS 101 and FRS 102, which between them set out the new UK GAAP framework that will be mandatory from 1 January 2015. Early adoption is permitted, and indeed encouraged, but mandatory implementation will be for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015
Investment Entities: Applying the Consolidation Exception (Amendments to IFRS 10, IFRS 12 and IAS 28) is a narrow-scope amendment to IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements, IFRS 12 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities and IAS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures.
