FRS 101, FRS 102, IFRS

Financial Reporting Standards - Corporate Formats

With effect from 1 January 2015 ‘old UK GAAP’ no longer exists and entities will need to adopt a new GAAP be that FRS 102, FRS 101 or full IFRS.

For Irish companies, in addition to the new reporting standards, they also have to contend with a new Companies Act.

There are also some future changes with regard to smaller companies. Draft FRS 105 is the proposed new micro-entity standard. There are also draft amendments to FRS 102 applicable for small entities following the proposed withdrawal of the current FRSSE (Schedule 1A to FRS 102).

BENEFITS OF USING THE CORPORATE TEMPLATES

  • Save time by using the automated trial balance import. Accounts codes are created dynamically based on the client trial balance and can then be assigned directly to report categories.
  • Default category structures facilitate populating the primary statements and notes to the accounts. (For IFRS and FRS 101 templates these are Balance, Changes in equity, Expenses by function and Expenses by nature. For the FRS 102 template these are Balance, Changes in equity, Format 1, Format 2, and Analysis).
  • The software will automatically switch on disclosure notes as necessary via conditions based on the imported trial balance data. For flexibility, users with the necessary permissions can manually override these conditions.
  • The ‘Cash flow and cash and cash equivalents’ data capture dialog allows the cash flow statement to be completed in a simple, efficient way.
  • Spell checking functionality ensures there are no typos in the reports.
