Because of the changes to the UK Financial Reporting Standards (FRS), over the next few years UK businesses will see changes to the accounting practice used to prepare financial statements. In particular, many UK businesses will be required to apply one of the EU-endorsed IFRS, FRS 101, FRS 102 or FRS 105.
The purpose of these 3 papers is to assist businesses that will be applying FRS 101, FRS 102 or FRS 105. In particular, it provides an overview of the key accounting changes and the key tax considerations that arise for those businesses that transition from old UK GAAP to the new standards.
