Accounting laws are continuously changing, which affects tax preparation, financial reporting, and bookkeeping processes. These legislations are typically complex to understand and require interpretation from a professional to save valuable time and money.

The latest amendment, due to be implemented in December by the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AASB), changes the standard format for presenting financial statements. The current method of using Notice to Readers will transition to Compilation Engagements.

This new standard brings more uniformity to the preparation of financial statements as there are now minimum standards that are defined more clearly.

The new rule also means that extra work is required on a file by practitioners, which may increase the cost of services. In addition, it will require more client participation. However, it’s worth the time and effort as it will add value to the end-of-year work.
