Understanding new insolvency law and going concern implications

New insolvency laws have been legislated. They affect the exposure of directors and their responsibilities – you need to know them. A financial-reporting and auditing dimension comes with the changes. The session will focus on:

  • Understanding the major features of the new insolvency regime
  • Assessing how the changes might affect the going-concern basis of accounting
  • Revisiting the rules for going-concern disclosures from the perspectives of preparers and auditors, and
  • Re-examining audit-reporting rules for going concern.
