Accounting standards in the UK and Republic of Ireland are going through a radical change. This book outlines the changes concerned, how they affect companies, what differences exist between the new and the old rules and what practitioners and directors should be aware of in producing financial statements for statutory purposes.
To aid this theory, numerous worked examples and illustrative model accounts are included to help preparers understand how these changes should be implemented.
Practitioners and preparers of accounts need to be fully versed in the changes to accounting practice and the stumbling blocks to avoid under the new rules. Each chapter contains a 'Pitfalls to avoid' section as well as a 'Chapter summary' to help preparers to understand the key differences. Invariably, if the accounts themselves are incorrect due to a misunderstanding of the new treatments, the resulting tax will be incorrect.

Written by an expert in UK company financial reporting issues, it includes illustrative financial statements, model disclosures and the structure of the primary statements under new UK GAAP and EU-adopted IFRS.
