UK GAAP application for reporting periods ending 31 December 2018

  • UKGAAP Image

06 Dec 2018

The table below reflects new and revised UK GAAP financial reporting requirements that need to be considered for financial reporting periods ending on 31 December 2018.

As the new UK GAAP regime has now been in place for a number of years, preparation of either parent company or subsidiary accounts under either FRS 101 or FRS 102 should now have become a more routine exercise. The FRC has made several changes to FRS 102 as part of its first triennial review of the Standard to deal with issues highlighted in its implementation. The amendments were published in December 2017.

The table below reflects new and revised UK GAAP financial reporting requirements that need to be considered for financial reporting periods ending on 31 December 2018. For those reporters who want to understand new UK GAAP application for earlier periods please select one of the following:
