DESCRIPTION

Standards of Generally Recognised Accounting Practice (GRAP), are to the public sector what International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are to private sector companies. 

Standards of GRAP are issued by the Accounting Standards Board (ASB) as a requirement of section 89 of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA). The public sector is funded by public funds and as such the financial management of these funds requires strict compliance with prescripts. 

Standards of GRAP apply to government departments, Parliament, municipalities and commissions just to name a few.  Although generally similar to IFRS, these standards present some notable differences in the treatment of certain accounting concepts. 

Join us as we take you through the standards of GRAP, their application and how they differ from similar IFRS.
