A Key Focus Area When Reviewing Financial Statements
SID and ISCA have partnered to present the Director Financial Reporting Essentials training course, a one-day course equipping directors of listed and non-listed companies, who have limited or no financial or accounting background, with basic accounting knowledge and financial reporting skills as well as practical tips and considerations when reviewing their company’s financial statements for approval.

Through case studies and related discussions on situations involving financial and accounting matters, participants will learn what questions to ask, what to watch out for and why they should be looking at these areas.
 
Background
In 2011 ACRA established the Financial Reporting Surveillance Programme (FRSP) to review the financial statements of selected companies. The financial reporting course was part of ACRA’s strategic plans to work with industry and key stakeholders to ensure that the market remains confident in the level of transparency, integrity and quality of financial reporting. Directors were therefore strongly encouraged to attend the Director Financial Reporting Fundamentals course.
