Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

At the heart of northern business since 1882

The changing face of accounts – for small and micro businesses

Date: 1 May 2014 13:30 - 16:30

Type: Audit Assurance and Financial Reporting

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

Designed for Partners and staff involved in the preparation or audit of small company accounts and of small unincorporated businesses.

Objectives FRSSE is likely to change to reflect the changes in UK GAAP deriving from the adoption of FRS 100 – 102.
The results of the BIS consultation on micro-companies will significantly change the format and content of accounts for such companies.

Proposals under consideration for all small companies will also impact on the form and content of accounts and, indeed, may ultimately result in the withdrawal of the FRSSE.

Reports from QAD and ACCA continue to highlight errors in small company accounts including errors in applying the definition of small company, eligibility for audit exemption and in the application of accounting standards.
In addition 2013-14 sees the introduction of cash accounting for small unincorporated businesses.

What are the options under company law?

  • What is a small company and what are the requirements?
