BDO Accounting Update Webinar (March 2017)

20 March 2017

BDO’s Financial Reporting Advisory Group delivers the latest in our regular series of accounting update webinars. Brian Creighton and Vanessa Lee discuss the latest updates to IFRS 9 Financial Instruments, IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers and IFRS 16 Leases. We analyse what a number of companies have disclosed in their December 2016 accounts for these standards along with an update on recent changes in UK GAAP.

The new Accounting Directive requires additional information to be disclosed in the accounts and we re-cap on some of the key changes. Finally we discuss some other matters that, whilst not reporting requirements within the financial statements, companies may be required to report on.
