The Independent Review of the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) led by Sir John Kingman published its report to government 18 December 2018. The review recommends that the FRC be replaced with an independent statutory regulator, accountable to Parliament, with a new mandate, new clarity of mission, new leadership and new powers. The new regulator would be called the Audit, Reporting and Governance Authority (ARGA) and will have a different culture and statutory objective to serve the interests of users of accounts. It is anticipated that ARGA will also act to promote competition in the audit market.
It’s the season for giving.
