Financial Reporting Standards: Observations from ACRA’s Financial Reporting Surveillance Programme (FRSP)

Expert Speaker Chee Hay Kheong Daniel

$430.00 (including GST)



The Financial Reporting Surveillance Programme (FRSP) introduced by ACRA covers both listed and private companies, and its primary objective is to guide companies to meet the requirements in the Accounting Standards so as to provide investors with reliable and meaningful financial statements for decision-making.

ACRA has the legislative power to bring the courts to bear on companies that have committed serious financial-reporting breaches, so that they will be compelled to restate, re-audit and re-file their financial statements. Companies which commit less serious breaches will be asked to restate the comparative figures, or include or improve the disclosures in the following year's financial statements.

This programme is part of the Professional Skills Series, designed specifically for Accountants involved in financial statements preparation and for Auditors who are auditing financial statements. Real life examples will be illustrated to help you avoid making the common errors.

Programme Outline

In this seminar, we draw lessons from mistakes made in real life applications. The situations covered will include:

  • Application of consolidation standards in determining the existence of control
  • The determination of goodwill
