What will I get out of it?

The course will consider recent changes to UK GAAP and IFRS and draw a comparison between the two frameworks. Topics which are of current interest will then be considered in terms of both frameworks. For UK GAAP session, we will consider the key standards; FRS 102, FRS 105 and FRS 101.
