Some things to know about our SOAPs

Although every effort has been made to provide accurate and timely information no these pages, we cannot guarantee the information will be accurate as at the date it is downloaded or that it will continue to be accurate in the future.

No one should act upon such information without appropriate professional advice after a thorough examination of the particular facts and circumstances of the situation.

The SOAPs are not a substitute reading and gaining a thorough understanding of the actual standards and interpretations.

It is intended that the SOAPs will be updated from time to time to take into account any new standards and interpretations or amendments to the standards and interpretations. Please contact your local BDO representative to enquire about updated SOAPs and for any assistance required in relation to the accounting standards.
