Where an entity applies FRS 101, it is preparing Companies Act accounts rather than IAS accounts. Therefore, in order to achieve compliance with the Companies Act and related Regulations, guidance in IAS 16 allowing the carrying amount of property, plant and equipment to be reduced by government grants is deleted.
FRS 101 paragraph 8(f) states that a qualifying entity is exempt from the requirement to disclose a reconciliation of the carrying amount of property, plant and equipment at the beginning and end of the comparative period.
IAS 16 paragraph for which exemption is available: 73(e) (comparative period only).
