    If you read up on SSAP 5 and 9 there isnt a lot to them.

    We got told to make sure we knew the four objectives in FRS 18 which are...

    Comparibilty
    Understandability
    Relevance
    Reliability

    (note CURR)

    Frs 18 & Ssap9

    These are the only 2 I have been taught in lesson. I think I'm correct in saying:

    FRS 18 is

    Relevance
    Comparability
    Reliability
    Understandability

    I haven't come across anywhere in past papers where you have to describe what they mean but the names are more or less self explanatory anyway.

    SSAP9 - The statement of standard accounting practice. Used for stock costing so don't think this will apply to the FRA tomorrow. I believe it is valuing stock at cost or the net realisable value whichever is the lower.

    Hope this helps

    Good luck everyone for tomorrow

    ssap 5 accounting for VAT
    borne by the final customer
    vat is a tax on the supply of goods and services
    etc

    ssap 9 stocks and long term contracts
    - stock should be valued at the lower cost or net realsable vale NRV
    NRV - is the expected selling price LESS any costs

    FRS 18 Relevant, reliable comparable and understandable
    - choose the most appropraite for the business
    review po;icies regularly
    two cocepts stated in frs18 going concern and accruals

    Hope this helps

    and frs 15, the one about fixed assets and depreciation as well
  • sidsid New Member Registered Posts: 7
    frs18- accounting policies going concern and matching concept

    frs15- accounting for tangible fixed assets explains the concept of depreciation
    (although depreciation is also a matching concept - costs should be reflected in the period they occur rather than when they are paid for)

    ssap 9- stock & long term contracts stock valued at lower of cost or net realisable value

    ssap 5- accounting for vat (company is a collector of tax on behalf of hmrc)
    balance on vat account is net of input and output vat

    hope this helps XXX
    best of luck not long to go now
