This was a useful brief reminder of the requirements of good interim reports. Incorpoating these into the management packs can provide valuable information to senior management and can also help to highlight any changes to risks earlier to allow for strategy planning and implementation.

  • Financial Reporting competency due to the impact of Covid 19

  • I can now discuss the 7 guidance points that the FRC gave on reporting on interim impairment that are usually given at the year-end reporting stage including focussing on material disclosures especially on balance sheet movements and statement of cash flows and reporting on them clearly;y and concisely.

Concise explanation of material impacts as well as going concern risks to be explained. As well the basis of analysis and what was taken into consideration.
