FRS 102 – What does it mean for your corporation tax liability?

1 January 2015 saw the introduction of a new Financial Reporting Standard for the UK, FRS 102.

FRS 102 replaces all current UK GAAP standards and all companies currently preparing accounts under UK GAAP must adopt FRS 102 or IFRS for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015.

The changes are significant and may impact on financial results, disclosures in your accounts, tax liabilities and dates when tax needs to be paid.

An understanding of the changes from a tax perspective is essential to ensure that the decisions made regarding the new accounting standards can be properly planned.
