Information sheets and help sheets

Information sheets

Information sheets are intended to advise preparers on the suggested solutions to implementation issues from applying charities SORP (FRS 102). Information sheets are the authoritative view of the SORP-making body and its advisory SORP Committee but they do not form part of the SORP and so there is no obligation to follow them.
