Small Company Financial Reporting, Second Edition provides comprehensive and practical guidance on the small companies' financial reporting framework and the micro-entities legislation. Its aim is to help those using the current standards by explaining the recognition, measurement and presentation requirements of UK GAAP and company law as well as bringing this theory to life through the use of real-life examples and model accounts.

Written by a specialist on small company reporting issues, it outlines the theory of the current UK GAAP regime, and explains why transactions and events affecting the financial statements are disclosed in a certain way, to enable preparers of small company financial statements to tailor certain disclosures to their client or company.

Updated to incorporate changes arising from the FRC's Triennial Review in December 2017, this Second Edition includes:
FRS 102 The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland as amended for small companies (March 2018)
FRS 105 The Financial Reporting Standard applicable to the micro-entities regime (March 2018)
Companies Act 2006 and related statutory instruments
Companies (Accounting) Act 2017 (for small and micro-entities in the Republic of Ireland)

Small Company Financial Reporting is an invaluable resource for accountants and auditors with clients that fall under the small company regime, as well as finance directors and owners of small companies affected by these changes.

Steve Collings FMAAT, FCCA is the audit and technical partner at Leavitt Walmsley Associates Ltd and a member of the UK GAAP Technical Advisory Group at the Financial Reporting Council.
