FRS 102

Financial Reporting Standard 102 (FRS 102) brings important changes to UK GAAP. There are significant commercial, accounting and taxation implications that need thinking about and acting upon now. The impact can be wide ranging for some companies, including, for example, the need to renegotiate banking covenants so they are not breached. Early planning is therefore essential.

The new standard applies to medium and large companies from 1 January 2015 and looks set to apply to small companies from 2016. Hawsons are helping companies prepare for the significant changes which arise on first implementation of FRS 102 and we look forward to helping you understand how FRS 102 will impact your company, regardless of its size. The precise impact of FRS 102 will differ from one company to another. For some, the impact could be minimal but for many others the devil will be in the detail. It is therefore crucial you seek advice through Hawsons.

For more information on FRS 102, please visit our FRS 102 Centre.
