Overview

FRS 102 first became mandatory for accounts periods commencing on or after 1 January 2015. Subsequently, a number of amendments have been made, in particular those issued in December 2017 following the triennial review of FRS 102. The course will review the December 2017 amendments to FRS 102 and consider their implications for future reporting.  It will also provide a refresher of key areas of FRS 102, particularly those which have given rise to problems and to comments from regulators.

The course will be illustrated by several case studies and examples relating to different industry sectors and covering  a number of key reporting areas.
