FRS 102 vs US GAAP online course
Many UK entities are faced with the challenge of preparing their statutory financial statements under FRS 102, then preparing corresponding US GAAP information for their US parent company.
There remain substantial differences between FRS 102 and US GAAP, and these are exacerbated by the decision of the FRC not to include any changes in respect of IFRSs 9,15 & 16 into FRS 102 as part of the First Triennial Review.
