The Impact Of New Legislation On UK Financial Statements

With effect on financial statements commencing the 1st January 2016 onwards, statutory instrument 2015/980 is changing the format of UK accounts.

Let’s look at the main changes for small companies:

  • Small company accounting sizes have raised substantially. This also applies to audit exemption levels.
  • Small Company accounts disclosure requirements are simplified significantly.
  • Abbreviated accounts are abolished although small companies will be able to prepare ‘abridged’ accounts for shareholders and for filing at Companies House. There is no change to the exemptions previously existing for filing accounts in Companies House.

  • Gross balance sheet total less than £5.1m
  • Less than 50 employees
