Financial Reporting Discussion Group 

John BoultonThe Financial Reporting Discussion Group (FRDG) provides an opportunity for members to stay up-to-date on the latest financial reporting proposals as well as sharing their views and discussing the proposals with other members.

FRDG organises around five events per year. These take place in the evening, starting at 17:45 for 18:00 and rotate around the premises of the larger firms. The evening takes the form of a presentation, typically by the body that is consulting on the proposals, followed by a question and answer session. It concludes with an opportunity to join other members for drinks and light refreshments.

Topics covered include latest proposals for International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as well as UK GAAP. The meetings are free of charge and open to all ICAEW members and non-ICAEW members.
