Mastering SME Accounting: An In-depth Workshop on FRS 102 and FRS 105
Welcome to this course on FRS 102 and FRS 105, the two main UK accounting standards for small and medium-sized entities (SMEs). This course is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of these standards, their key requirements, and their practical implications for SMEs.
FRS 102 is a complex standard that sets out the principles of accounting for financial reporting in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. It covers a wide range of topics, including the recognition and measurement of assets, liabilities, income, and expenses, as well as the presentation and disclosure of financial statements. FRS 102 is applicable to most SMEs in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, and it has been updated several times in recent years, with the latest version being issued in March 2018.
FRS 105 is a simpler standard that provides a reduced disclosure framework for micro-entities, which are very small businesses that meet certain size criteria. FRS 105 is based on FRS 102 but has fewer disclosure requirements, making it easier and cheaper for micro-entities to comply with. FRS 105 is applicable to entities that meet the definition of a micro-entity under UK law and has been updated in 2020.
During this course, you will learn about the scope and structure of FRS 102 and FRS 105, their main principles and concepts, and the specific requirements and options available to SMEs under each standard. You will also learn how to apply these standards to practical scenarios, including the preparation of financial statements, the measurement of assets and liabilities, and the treatment of common transactions and events.
Whether you are a small business owner, an accountant, an auditor, or a student of accounting, this course will provide you with valuable insight into the world of SME accounting in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. By the end of the course, you should be able to understand and apply FRS 102 and FRS 105 to a variety of SMEs and scenarios and appreciate the challenges and opportunities that these standards present to SMEs in today’s business environment.
