FRS 10 Events after balance sheet – Summary

Events after the balance sheet date are those events, favourable and unfavourable, that occur between the balance sheet date and the date when the financial statements are authorised for issue.

Two types of events can be identified:

(b) those that are indicative of conditions that arose after the balance sheet date (non-adjusting events after the balance sheet date).
