7.00 CPE Hours (Category 1)
Classroom

Programme Objective
 
Participants are required to bring along a calculator
 
Accountants and auditors are faced with increasing challenges to deal with complexities posed by accounting standards. Besides interpretation issues, accountants also have to deal with challenges in implementing the requirements of the standards while auditors have to ascertain whether the requirements of the standards have been properly met. This workshop focuses on some of the more challenging requirements of selected accounting standards relating to the theme of Group Reporting (excluding translation of foreign operations), and explains the principles, requirements and the application and implementation considerations that accountants and auditors should look out for. This workshop covers two standards that deal with Group Reporting: FRS 103 Business Combinations, which deals with acquisition accounting and FRS 110 Consolidated Financial Statements, which defines control and prescribes the requirements for the consolidation process. In dealing with the accounting complexities in Group Reporting, the workshop draws participants’ attention to the underlying principles and bases that drive the requirements. In understanding the principles, participants are better able to implement the requirements of the standards. Hence, this workshop is unique in its focus on both the principles and application of complex accounting standards.
