Amendments to UK accounting standards
29 May 2020
The FRC has today completed its annual review of FRS 101 Reduced Disclosure Framework
and made minor amendments, for consistency, to the disclosure exemptions relating to the statement of cash flows.
The FRC has also issued FRED 74 Draft amendments to FRS 102 – Interest rate benchmark reform (Phase 2)
. As interest rate benchmark reform takes place, this proposes amendments to provide relief to minimise discontinuities in the accounting for financial instruments and leases, minimise reporting costs, assist entities in providing useful information to users of financial statements and avoid unnecessary discontinuation of hedge accounting as agreements are modified in order to transition to alternative benchmark rates. The effective date is proposed as 1 January 2021 with early application permitted. The comment period ends on 30 September 2020.
