FRS 102 company accounting

Home Not For Profit Pension services for housing associations FRS 102 company accounting for housing associations

Housing associations must meet their company accounting obligations

Housing associations participating in the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) must show full details of funding position in their annual accounts under the FRS 102 or IAS 19 accounting standards.

Up to now, housing associations participating in the Social Housing Pension Scheme (SHPS) Defined Benefit plans have been able to treat these schemes as Defined Contribution (DC) arrangements for accounting purposes.

However now that FRS 102 has been implemented, they have to disclose the present value of contributions payable under any deficit reduction schedule within the balance sheet – rather than simply recognising actual contributions as an expense in the profit and loss account.

How can First Actuarial help?

We can help your housing association meet its company accounting requirements by:

  • Calculating the present value of your deficit contributions to date on your balance sheet
  • Providing a reconciliation of your pension liability over the accounting period, showing items passing through the profit and loss account and the statement of total gains and losses (STRGL).

Why choose First Actuarial?

We offer a simple service at a fixed and reasonable price, working quickly but thoroughly to agreed timescales.
