This 90-minute on-line course examines some of the major accounting issues arising, for financial statements with year-ends in 2020, as a result of the Covid-19 crisis. These issues apply in a similar way under either IFRS or UK/Irish GAAP (FRS 102).

Foreign Exchange Markets and Currency Risk Management

The Foreign Exchange markets have never been busier, or more volatile and risky, especially post Brexit.

This Foreign Exchange Markets and Currency Risk Management course looks at the FX markets, and how to manage currency risk, from a professional, practical perspective.

This programme will explore and explain the FX markets from both the sell side (banks) and buy side (corporate and asset managers) perspective.

New market initiatives and regulations such as MiFID11 will be covered, and all terminology and jargon will be fully explained.

No prior knowledge is assumed.

Fraud Prevention and Detection – How to Manage the Risks – Session 1 & 2

Fraud is a crime that threatens not only an organisation’s profits but its reputation also. These threats are increasing so that it is vital that fraud risks are managed effectively – this course shows exactly how this can be done. Delegates will learn about the various types of fraud and the modern threat landscape, in particular the important and developing danger of cybercrime. They will also be made aware of the motives and behaviours of fraudsters and so will be in a position to spot behavioural red flags. A key part of developing an effective fraud risk management framework is being aware of those controls that work in practice and delegates will be taken through the key preventative measures and detective techniques used by organisations today to fight fraud. The course is highly inter-active throughout, with practical tips, case studies and lessons learned from a review of recent cases.

FRS 102 – Session 1 & 2

The FRS Applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland

FRS 102 is based on an amended version of the international framework, the IFRS for SMEs. For entities previously using the SSAPs and FRSs of the former UK GAAP, the new framework presented some significant reporting challenges, although it does offers some reprieve for those entities who are eligible to take the reduced disclosure option, and for others that are small enough to apply section 1A of the standard. At first glance FRS 102 looks very similar to the former UK GAAP, but the devil is in the detail and there are still many aspects of the standard that are not always correctly applied as they differ from former UK GAAP.

This course will explain the main reporting requirements for an FRS 102 user, including changes from the latest triennial review. It will identify and probe the accounting requirements and clarify the mandatory requirements that are often overlooked or misunderstood

The course is broken down into two 3-hour modules over to separate days.

FRS 102 – Thorough Understanding
