Plans to issue an exposure draft for revised accounting standards for small companies that report under the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (FRSSE) have been delayed due to the pending introduction of the EU Accounting Directive say Harris & Co accountants Northampton, the specialist small business accountants  

It is understood that the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) will now issue an initial consultation on FRSSE 2015 by the end of June, rather than the expected exposure draft.

 
However, any proposals may well conflict with the new EU Accounting Directive which the Department for Businesss, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is currently drafting. The new EU-driven accounting rules will be introduced as part of the Companies Act in due course and are set to come into effect by 2016.

 
The EU directive defines a small company as a business with a turnover up to £10m, which is higher than the FRSSE maximum turnover threshold of £6.5m.

 
The timetable for the introduction of the EU Directive is legislation set for July 2015 and it has to be implemented by January 2016 for companies reporting under the new framework. However, it will not be mandatory.

 
The uncertainty has drawn criticism from business and practices who feel that the government’s mantra of deregulation is creating more complexity.
