The SFRS for Small Entities is an alternative framework to the Singapore Financial Reporting Standard (“SFRS”) for the preparation and presentation of general-purpose financial statements of entities. Eligible entities in Singapore have the option to apply the SFRS for SE or to continue to apply the full set of Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (“SFRS”).

The standard is issued in response to a high demand for a simpler financial reporting standard that is tailored to the needs of small and private entities. The standard seeks to reduce the financial reporting burden arising from the considerable number of recognition and measurement bases, and detailed disclosure requirements as required under the full SFRSs. The standard also seeks to provide information that is fit-for-purpose to the users of the financial statements.

The main objective of this practical webinar is to highlight the differences between SFRS for SEs and full SFRS and if SFRS for SEs is applied, this will help reduce the compliance burden for eligible entities in Singapore.
