International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)

Generally, you would need to be familiar with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and International Accounting Standards (IAS) when preparing your company accounts. So as to comply with Companies Act requirements.

Ordinarily, shareholders, Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs would expect your company accounts be prepared following the IFRS and IAS.

For that reason, you must also disclose the accounting standards your accounts are prepared accordingly.
