UKSA and ShareSoc have responded to the IASB’s consultation on “ED General Presentation and Disclosures”, part of their Primary Financial Statements project and focusing on proposed changes to mainly the statement of profit or loss, leaving statements of cash flows and balance sheets to later stages.
