At this year’s Singapore Accountancy and Audit Convention, it was noted that there will be new regulatory changes ahead. These changes will address the Enhanced Auditor Reporting which has the key audit matters or KAMs that reveal the most pertinent points in the audit of financial statements, the review of the Accountants Act, as well as the financial reporting of Singapore companies that are listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange. Under this context, it is important for companies to stay up-to-date on the latest accounting standards and be in compliance with them.
