FRC Future of Corporate Reporting Project

The FRC’s Future of Corporate Reporting project aims to challenge existing thinking about corporate reporting and consider how companies should better meet the information needs of shareholders and other stakeholders.

The comment period for the paper closed on 5 February 2021.
