Abstract

The publication of interim financial reports has been a requirement for listed companies for many years, although the Stock Exchange’s rules governing their form and content remain sketchy. However, the Accounting Standards Board is in the process of finalising a non-mandatory Statement on the subject, based on work undertaken by the Financial Reporting Committee of the ICAEW.
