The UK’s Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has published a discussion paper, “A Matter of Principles — The Future of Corporate Reporting,” that aims to “provide thought leadership for the future of corporate reporting and explore ideas for a new model, challenging the status quo”. The paper, published on 7 October 2020, builds on previous independent reviews and reform proposals by the FRC.
