Time: 11:00 – 12:00

Part 2 – Practical Consolidations & Groups – Finished

Date: Tuesday, 20 April
Time: 11:00 – 12:00

Using a practical case study, this webinar will bring participants through the consolidation process for small groups under FRS 102.

Under the Companies Accounting Act 2017, the threshold for small group consolidation was significantly lowered, resulting in many more Irish companies now requiring consolidation than previously under the Companies Act 2014.

The case study will take you, step-by-step, through the process you need to follow to consolidate small groups. The handouts will also include a simple consolidation checklist that you can benefit from straight away.

This session will cover:

  • An overview of S9 consolidations and the new consolidation requirements under CAA 2017
  • Consolidation basics and collating the information
  • The core consolidation adjustments for Irish companies
  • Consolidation journals and adjustments
  • The financial statements and disclosures relating to consolidation
  • The audit file for consolidations

Part 3 – COVID-19 and Its Impact on Financial Statements

Date: Tuesday, 20 May
Time: 11:00 – 12:00

For the past 15 months, businesses have had to deal with an unprecedented set of circumstances and situations.

Whilst Irish businesses have reacted to the Pandemic with resilience, accountants must now consider how the effects of this must be reported on.

This session will revisit some of the key areas impacted by COVID but will have a particular focus on real life financial statement examples to show how businesses exposed by the pandemic have reported on this.

This session will cover:

  • Directors report disclosures
  • Going concern
  • Government grant accounting
  • Exceptional items
  • Judgements & estimation uncertainty
  • Post balance sheet events

Date: Tuesday, 08 June
Time: 11:00 – 12:00

The content for this session will be driven by recent legislation changes, topical financial reporting issues and common errors identified by OmniPro during file reviews/monitoring visits.

This session will cover:

  • Onerous leases
  • IFRS 16
  • Internally generated intangible assets
  • Changes to Limited Partnership regime
  • Common errors in 2020/2021

Part 5 – Charities & Financial Reporting

Date: Tuesday, 20 July
Time: 11:00 – 12:00

Charity assignments are susceptible to a higher than normal risk level due to several factors. One such factor is the requirement to ensure that their accounts are prepared in accordance with an applicable financial reporting framework. While the Charities SORP is not yet mandatorily applicable, many charities are voluntarily applying this which presents additional disclosure requirements. This session will focus on the key considerations for financial reporting in Irish Charities, including;

  1. Selection of an appropriate financial reporting framework
  2. The differences between SORP and FRS 102
  3. Key accounting issues for Charities, including issues with SORP application
  4. Review of Charities financial statements

Part 6 – Top FRS 102 Queries / Issues

Date: Tuesday, 17 August
Time: 11:00 – 12:00
