April 2014 saw the introduction of the new accounting standards for group accounts into the Accounting Code of Practice. More and more authorities are entering into or considering alternative service delivery models as part of the transformation agenda, and this has pushed group accounts to the forefront for practitioners, with many now facing the challenge of producing group accounts.
This series of workshops aimed to give practical examples, proformas and advice to help determine your group boundary in accordance with the 2015 Code, consolidate your subsidiaries and apply equity accounting to associates and joint ventures. It gave proformas for financial statement layout and practical tips on the whole process.
The workshop involved a fully worked example, which can be found here with the slides and suggested approaches.
