SRA Competency A D

Introduction

The recent adaptations to the Accounts Rules - now in Version 18 - see the latest in a long line of revisions by the SRA.

Further, the Accounts Rules are undergoing radical overhaul. They are being substantially reduced in length and prescription, and are being shorn of much of the detailed provisions.

The new rules will be implemented by Autumn 2018.

But - it is likely that fundamental errors will remain. Faults are a human characteristic, but not all errors are equal.

This course will focus on the key errors that would excite the interest of the Regulator.
