  • highlights areas, such as going concern, where there are opportunities for improvements in practice.

The report also includes model half-yearly financial statements and a disclosure checklist, as well as various ‘good practice’ examples. It is aimed primarily at:

  • financial directors and financial controllers of public companies
  • non-executive directors, including Audit Committee members, of listed companies, who may be interested in reporting issues.
