The preparation of consolidated financial statements is a challenging task for accountants working in professional practice and industry. The related rules are diverse and the accounting and disclosure requirements have changed significantly with the introduction of FRS 102. The audit of groups is governed by ISA 600, a standard which regulators tell us is often misunderstood and poorly executed.
This half-day seminar will use practical examples and real group accounts to highlight the key consolidation adjustments and the practical challenges to provide helpful guidance to ensure that delegates’ accounts comply.
