Drafting Companies Act Compliant Financial Statements during COVID-19

The aim of this session is to discuss how to draft AFS that are Companies Act compliant while taking COVID-19 into consideration. May 2021

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

By the end of this event the attendee should:  

    • Be aware of current trends and attitudes towards disclosure;
    • Understand risks and responsibilities of the compiler;
    • Understand compilation per the Companies Act requirements;
    • Understand the basic principles of presentation and disclosure per IFRS for SME’s; and 
    • Know areas of the financials most impacted by COVID-19 for years ended 2020/2021.

DESCRIPTION

As preparers of financial statements, we need to reflect on the usefulness and purpose of the information we present. Unfortunately we often fall back on habit and fail to question the message our financial statements are sending to the users.  

Never has this been more important and impactful than the financials we are drafting for the 2020/2021 financial year, taking into account the effect and consequences COVID-19 has had on business and the risks to investors.

We are presenting this webinar where we would like to take the time to stop and reflect on our role and function as drafters of financial statements (aka compilers) during these uncertain times. 

Join us for the webinar as we discuss how to draft financial statements that are meaningful as well as useful to users.
