Davies warns listed companies

Outgoing FSA chairman Howard Davies has used a speech in Glasgow at the Confederation of British Industry to remind listed companies of the need to prepare themselves for the advent of new accounting standards which will begin 1 January 2005. Due to the largely European-led changes, Davies urged companies to “get ahead with their preparations as a matter of urgency”, because they will effect any company whose reporting years include the 2005 date. For some companies, this will apply from 1January 2004.
