F7 Financial Reporting

ACCA F7 | Financial Reporting (INT)


ACCA – F7 Financial Reporting is a major link between the introductory ACCA F3 and the final paper ACCA P2. Almost whole syllabus of ACCA F7 is computational in nature and does not involve theoretical concepts with few exceptions (where we discuss the role of accounting bodies in standard setting and another area concerning business combination). ACCA F7 carries the same concept as F3 and introduces more complex accounting issues posed in circumstances which professional accountants are going to see in real life while preparing financial statements. It also advances in Business combination portion and international accounting standards i.e. IASs and IFRSs are discussed in good detail. Practicing the computational aspects of the syllabus is a key to success in this paper.

Principal Objectives

Among principal aims of this paper, it requires students to learn:

  • How financial statements are prepared of non-group entities. This is a carry forward topic from ACCA F3 with heavy inclusion of accounting standards and related accounting matters.
