Session Topic

Time to address common financial-statement shortcomings

ASIC-inspired corporate restatements, and the commission’s inspection results and financial-reporting focus show where statement-preparers struggle with applying accounting standards.  These shortcomings expose entities to breaching reporting mandates, inefficient practices, and exposure to regulatory and market sanctions.

In this session we will:

  • Revisit the key requirements of asset impairment, expected credit losses, and tax-effect accounting and disclosure, and
  • Discuss procedures to improve financial-statement preparation and presentation.
