New UK GAAP

In 2015, alterations were made to accounting standards for all UK companies, other than for those applying International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) or the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (FRSSE). The New UK GAAP consists of three new standards: FRS100, FRS101 and FRS 102.

These changes could have commercial implications for many entities, such as the ability to pay dividends or to measure performance against financial covenants under lending agreements.

UNW’s audit and assurance team provides the assistance to ensure you are aware of available options and prepared for the standard changes. We also take a collaborative approach, working with our client base to produce an impact analysis, highlighting the key accounting changes and presentational disclosures, as well as helping you consider any wider commercial impact.

On October 18 2019, we are hosting an event focused on employee development. By taking a strategic approach to development, you can boost employee retention, bridge the skills gap, and ensure the sustainable growth of your business. Register here: ow.ly/4Y6E50wbgeX pic.twitter.com/gsU6pgksHK
