Are you ready for FRS 102?

UK GAAP as we know it is changing! Any entity that is currently using UK GAAP will at some point over the next 12 months, have to transition to a new source of accounting guidance; the single standard FRS 102.

The transition to FRS 102 will be a 2 year process, with restatement of financial statement along with reconciliations and required disclosures, and runs the risk of being a very onerous on an entities resources.
