FRS for SMEs

While we are eagerly awaiting for the launch of FRS for SMEs in Singapore, there are changes to IFRS’s version as outline in recent IFRS Conference held on July 17, 2008 in Marina Oriental Singapore.

First and foremost, IFRS said there is going to be a name change from IFRS for SMEs to IFRS for PRIVATE ENTITIES. Warren McGregor gave some background info on the proposed name change.

The IFRS for SMEs is definitely not for the mom-and-pops businesses but rather caters to entities with 50 or more employees in general. They were considering other names like non-publicly accountable entities.

The IFRS for Pte Entities will be fully stand alone ie. no reference to the main/full FRSs.
