DP SME Advisory will prepare (unaudited) Financial Statements in accordance with Financial Report Standards (“FRS”) to give a “true and fair” view on the company's financial position. The Financial Statements includes:

  • Directors’ report

The preparation of Financial Statements involves the process of aggregating accounting information into a standardised set of financials. The completed Financial Statements are then distributed to management, lenders, creditors, and investors, who use them to evaluate the performance, liquidity, and cash flow of a business.

Under section 201 of the Companies Act, Directors are also required to present at AGM, company’s accounts that comply with the requirements of the Accounting Standards and which give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the company to its shareholders.

A complete set of Financial Statements comprises the following:

  • A Statement of Financial Position as at reporting date;
  • Either:
    (a) A single Statement of Comprehensive Income for the reporting period, or
    (b) A separate Income Statement and a separate Statement of Comprehensive Income for the reporting period
  • A Statement of Changes in Equity for the reporting period;
  • A Statement of Cash Flows for the reporting period;
  • Notes, comprising a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information
  • A Statement of Financial Position as at the beginning of the earliest comparative period when an entity applies an accounting policy retrospectively or makes a retrospective restatement of items in its Financial Statements, or when it reclassifies items in its Financial Statements (not applicable for Financial Statements prepared in accordance with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards for Small Entities)
