Accounting standards are developed in the public interest in support of Singapore’s corporate governance and financial reporting framework. The accounting standard-setting process must be robust and credible to promote public confidence in the standards developed from the process.
The Accounting Standards Council (ASC) is responsible for the formulation and promulgation of the Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (FRS) and Interpretations of FRS (INT FRS). In addition to prescribing accounting standards for companies, the ASC also prescribes accounting standards for charities, co-operatives societies and societies. Please refer to www.asc.gov.sg for more information on the process of prescribing accounting standards and the standards issued by ASC.
In addition, ISCA issues Recommended Accounting Practices (RAP) and publishes summaries of FRS, INT FRS and RAP.
The following are accounting standards and accounting guidance/materials.
