There are, however, transitional rules to make the process more efficient, where some adjustments will not be required.
Transitional adjustments can affect taxable profits and consequently the corporation tax computation in the year in which FRS 102 is adopted (and subsequently). This is covered in detail in the Transitional issues affecting the corporation tax computation and return guidance note.
