Communication – not a word that you would normally associate with financial reporting. But financial reporting is a practical exercise in communication, not a theoretical or academic construct.

It’s imperative not to lose sight of the importance of financial statements as a tool for communication. In 2001 this led to the development of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) by International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and further the development of FRS 102 in more recent times. These standards are based on sound and clearly stated principles that benefit all stakeholders in the years to come, together with improved corporate governance and increased free flow of capital across the globe.
