Case studies and examples in hot audit areas
Auditing is changing again and a number of the changes are complex with limited guidance from standard setters. Some of these changes are hard to understand others are simply confusing, and are the subject of debate in the profession. Applying ICAEW’s technical resources, this roadshow will shine a light on difficult areas.
Using new case studies and examples, many of them based on real situations, this roadshow will give practical help to auditors on the following topics:
The roadshow will particularly focus on the audit of smaller, unlisted groups and companies.
By now most entities will have applied FRS 102 at least once. Some will have applied it a couple of times already and will be gearing up for their third year of applying the new standard. For many what we still tend to refer to as ‘new’ UK GAAP is fast becoming business as usual. With the transition phase now behind us, it’s time to assess how the standard is being applied practice.
The Financial Reporting Faculty has got feedback from QAD, the ICAEW Technical Advisory Service, Companies House and HMRC. The judges have now spoken. And the verdict is that there is definitely room for improvement!
This roadshow will give feedback on the areas where FRS 102 is proving to be challenging. Using practical examples, delegates will be shown how to better comply with what can sometimes be a difficult accounting standard.Key topics to be covered include:
The roadshow will also take a more detailed look at proposed changes to FRS 102 proposed by FRED 67 and the FRC’s plans for incorporating major new IFRSs into UK GAAP.
Presented by Rebecca Benneyworth the 2017 tax CPD programme will cover different topics in each half of the year.
Drawing on insights gained by the Tax Faculty in its consultations with government, HMRC and practitioners the seminars will not only be a technical update but importantly also a practical look at what firms need to do to prepare for the changes – in terms of services offered and information to clients. Key topics to be covered include:
Practice Promotion - Effective promotional activities in less time than ever
This unique session will help ensure that you and your firm can better attract the clients you want - through conventional means, social media and Linkedin. And you’ll learn how to remain compliant with the new GDPR obligations that address the data you hold about prospects and clients.
Unlike some other courses on related topics this one is free of hyperbole, impractical and costly solutions. You don't need to spend a fortune to promote your practice effectively. You simply need an appropriate plan - whether for your own practice or when you have responsibility for new client generation in a larger firm.
