FRS 105 – Accounts Made Simpler

The introduction of a simpler reporting regime for micro-entities represents a great opportunity for experienced bookkeepers to offer more to their clients. The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) called the introduction of FRS 105 a "game changer" because now there is no more need for accountants for the completion of micro-entity company accounts and tax returns.

What is FRS 105?

FRS 105 The Financial Reporting Standard applicable to the Micro-entities Regime is an accounting standard intended for financial statements of companies which qualify for the micro-entities regime.

Does my company qualify as a micro-entity?

A business which is not prohibited from using FRS 105, would meet the qualifying conditions if at least two out of three of the following thresholds apply:

  • Turnover not more than £632,000 (pro rata for a short accounting period)
  • Balance sheet total not more than £316,000
  • Not more than 10 employees

My business qualifies, so do I have to use FRS 105?

No, the regime is optional and the decision to apply it will depend on the individual circumstances of the business.
