UK Financial Statements: Presentation and Disclosure Requirements

By Steve Collings

This publication contains model financial statements to illustrate how the disclosure requirements under new UK GAAP (and EU-endorsed IFRS) should be prepared. The book offers preparers of financial statements detailed guidance on getting the accounts and associated disclosure requirements correct under a new reporting framework. Many books offering illustrative financial statements merely focus on the disclosure requirements only. This publication is a 'one-stop-shop' which focuses on the wider issues around financial statement preparation. Various areas of the Companies Act 2006 require differing levels of disclosure depending on whether the entity is a micro-entity, small company, medium-sized or large business and this book is structured in such a way that each type of business is covered in its own chapter, hence making each chapter a standalone chapter depending on the size of the entity concerned. Real-life financial statements will be used to aid comprehension. In addition detailed explanations of why certain things are done and disclosed will be incorporated within each chapter to enable preparers to understand why they are disclosing certain items. Coverage includes: Introduction; Overview of the revised Companies Act 2006; Summary of new UK GAAP and emerging issues and how to deal with them; Overview of small and micro-entity reporting requirements; Sample micro-entity financial statements; Sample small company financial statements; Sample medium-sized company financial statements; Sample large (unlisted) company financial statements; Sample EU-adopted IFRS financial statements; Abridged and adapted financial statements; Consolidated financial statements - overview of the requirements; Sample consolidated financial statements prepared to UK GAAP; Sample consolidated financial statements prepared to EU-adopted IFRS; Auditing financial statement disclosures. Appendices include: Disclosure checklists for micro-entities, small companies, medium-sized companies, large companies and EU-endorsed IFRS. [Subject: Finance Law]
