Reporting and Assurance essential guides

Your essential guides to reporting and assurance developments for December 2020 year-ends.

In brief

  • Our December 2020 editions of Reporting Essentials and Assurance Essentials for both Australia and New Zealand are out now
  • The publications highlight the latest key accounting, audit and regulatory developments and their impact on financial reports and assurance engagements
  • The aim is to help financial statement preparers and auditors navigate this reporting period

We have issued our Reporting and Assurance Essential Guides for Australia and New Zealand respectively, which contain key information about the upcoming reporting season. They are packed with key accounting and auditing standards developments and their impact on the preparation and audit of financial reports, as well as other assurance engagements. They also outline regulator focus areas for both reporting surveillance and audit inspections.

They list the newly effective pronouncements for 31 December 2020 year-ends and those that have been issued but are not yet effective where early adoption is permitted. Tier 1 entities are reminded of the requirement to disclose an assessment of the impact of accounting standards issued but not yet effective.

Our aim is to assist management, boards and auditors get through this busy season with no surprises, so we hope you find them useful.

Members can now access the Essential Guides from the Resource Centre in the Library.
