Thanks to Steve Collins.

I've been waiting for someone to save me the trouble. Many thanks. Shades of RTI, I guess! Just what I needed; a redesigned wheel.  I do US and Singapore etc accounts and I already call spades shovels, among other "alternative nomenclatures".

revaluation reserve effectively disappears ?

 

on the take up of FRS102...the revaluation reserves stays on the balance sheet  ?

when the annual revaluation that takes place,  then goes via the profit and loss and ends up in the 'B/Sheet P&L Reserves' which then would make this a combination of distributable[earned and taxed] and non distributable[ unrealised gains /losses ]  how difficult would that be from a dividend availability perspective ...if correct

what happens to the Revaluation reserve that existed prior to FRS102 adoption ?

 

confused....

On transition

It will be a transitional adjustment and be taken to the profit and loss account reserves.

Best wishes

Could you tell me whether this would be a distributable or non-distributable reserve?
