Which accounting framework?

There are too many accounting framework around IFRS, IFRS for SMEs, FRSSE, FRS 102 and other all creating a confusing mesh.

I have listed below a simply the applicable frameworks:

Company type Accounting framework
Micro companyie. Turnover below £632,000 per annum1 FRS 105
Small Companiesie.Turnover below £10.20 million per annum1 Section 1A Small Entities of FRS 102 
All others FRS 102
Listed Companies IFRS

 

Where an entity prepares its financial statements in accordance with an accounting framework , a statement of compliance needs to be included in the notes.

 

Notes :

  1. Other criteria also apply like number of employees and balance sheet total.
