Financial Reporting Publications 

Keep up to date with the latest changes in financial reporting with our publications Breaking News UK, Financial Reporting Update and Financial Reporting Matters.



New UK GAAP     


Our new publication Cutting through UK GAAP discusses in detail the requirements of the new UK GAAP regime (FRSs 100, 101 and 102) applicable for periods commencing on or after 1 January 2015 and summarises the differences between FRS 102, current UK GAAP and EU-IFRS. 


The publication will be of great benefit when considering whether to adopt the standards early, and also in making the decision as to which GAAP to apply from 2015.
