ICAEW’s Essentials CPD Roadshows

As part of ICAEW’s range of Essentials CPD series, the Accounting/Financial Reporting update course is aimed at all accountants preparing accounts under UK GAAP. Covering new and topical issues, it is suitable for all entities whether micro, small, medium or large. With UK GAAP being based on the international accounting standard for small and medium-sized entities (IFRS for SMEs), the course will also touch upon the latest developments in IFRS. 

A revised virtual Spring programme is now available in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Core titles from the Essentials CPD range, including the Accounting / Financial Reporting update seminar, are being delivered by live webinar in May and June, and are also subsequently available as an on-demand recording.

For bookings made before 31 August, a discount of 75% is available on the individual delegate rate.
