Alternative Performance Measures (APMs)

In this Common Practices report we look at what APMs are; how companies are using them; and what they mean for the users of accounts when comparing them to others. This report examines the APMs that are stated within recent company and group accounts for a sample of 20 companies. Our selected sample covers year ends from 30 June 2017 to 31 March 2018. All companies report under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted in the EU. Throughout this report, we look at some of the recommendations put forward by the European Securities and Markets Agency (ESMA) in their guidelines setting out best practice on APMs in 2015, which became effective from 3 July 2016, as well as the observations made by the FRC, assessing whether and how companies have implemented them. 

Risk and viability in the strategic report

In light of recent high-profile collapses such as Carillion, the reporting by companies of risks and long-term viability is once again in the spotlight. Investors and other stakeholders expect detailed, specific information in the annual report which clearly sets out the key risks facing the company and the potential impact of these risks on the company’s longer-term viability. This report analyses the consolidated financial statements of 20 UK listed companies to assess the quality of risk and viability reporting in the annual report.

Fair value measurement information under IFRS

IFRS 13 “Fair value measurement” sets out a single consistent framework for measuring fair value within IFRS financial statements and outlines a standardised set of disclosures in respect of fair value measurements. IFRS 13 has been mandatory now for some years, with application being required for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013. This report sets out the results of how requirements of the standard have been put into practice, both in terms of measurement and disclosure, in the consolidated financial statements of 139 large public limited companies with year ends between 31 March 2016 and 1 April 2017. It is not an exhaustive study of all aspects of IFRS 13 application and its conclusions are limited to our findings in respect of the areas analysed within the financial statements reviewed.

Disclosure of the impacts of IFRS 16 "Leases"

IFRS 16 “Leases” will fundamentally change accounting by lessees as it requires assets previously off balance sheet under operating lease arrangements to be brought on balance sheet as is currently the case for finance leased assets. As a result on application companies will recognise both additional assets and additional liabilities. Consequently there will also be knock on effects in the income statement as operating lease charges are replaced by a depreciation charge and a finance expense. This report analyses the financial statements of a range of companies to firstly establish whether there has been any early adoption and secondly to establish what companies are disclosing in respect of IFRS 16 and its future impacts.

Brexit Disclosures in Listed Company Annual reports

The referendum vote to leave the European Union (EU) has undoubtedly led to uncertainty for business and will potentially have far reaching impacts for companies from many different industries. This report, pulled together in March 2017, focuses on the information that companies have disclosed within their annual reports during the latter half of 2016. It sets out disclosures around risk as well as the disclosure of Brexit impacts which have already been felt and the resulting ramifications.

Impending Changes: Disclosure of IFRS 15 Impacts

This report focuses on the disclosures given by companies in respect of the impending impacts of the new revenue standard IFRS 15 “Revenue from contracts with customers”. It considers the level of detail given by companies to determine the standard of qualitative information that companies disclose in relation to future changes in accounting policy and to what extent to date we have seen companies give quantitative information as to the impact the standard will have when it is adopted.
