The regulatory landscape for listed companies in Singapore is changing rapidly in both financial and non-financial reporting. Having to deal with new and updated financial reporting standards had always been the norm. On top of this, there is now the impending convergence with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) that will be effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 2018.
When this IFRS convergence occurs, listed companies will need to prepare financial statements according to a new Singapore financial reporting framework identical to the IFRS. Preparing for this will involve at least two matters. Firstly, understanding and evaluating the impact this move will have on the financial statements. Secondly, implementing changes in accounting policies and procedures to meet the new requirement.
Sustainability reporting has crept into the Singapore business lexicon these days, and it may sound daunting to some. Listed companies had been dealing with governance, risk and compliance (GRC) issues since the release of the inaugural Code of Corporate Governance in 2001. From 2017, they will also have to be concerned with environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities.
While the number of entities had grown, the listed companies that had voluntarily published sustainability reports are still in the minority. With the latest change however, all Singapore listed companies will be required to publish a sustainability report annually from the year 2018.
This seminar is part of the Corporate Practice Series, designed specifically to provide Accounting and Finance Professionals timely and practical updates on these regulatory changes. You will also get to learn about the best practices while you embark on your learning journey.
