- FRS 102, 'The financial reporting standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland'
- FRS 103, 'Insurance contracts'
- FRS 104, 'Interim financial reporting'
- and the accounting requirements of the Companies Act 2006 that together make up the new UK GAAP.
The Manual offers a clear explanation of the new UK reporting requirements to help you implement these requirements and deal with day-to-day issues as well as the more complex areas under the new standards. In addition to providing reliable up-to-date guidance on the new UK GAAP, the Companies Act and relevant statutory instruments, it includes practical worked examples to help illustrate the explanations.
This third edition has been updated for changes in company law and amended standards (FRS 101 and FRS 102) as a result of the new Accounting Directive (effective 1 January 2016).
It has also been updated for practical experience in implementing the new standards.
Written by PwC's Accounting Consulting Services team of specialists, the Manual will be of particular interest to finance directors, chief accountants and others concerned with preparing and using UK GAAP and reduced disclosure company financial statements.
