Corporate Reporting

Corporate Reporting (CR)

Our CR tuition teaches the essential brought forward Professional Level content as well as the frequently examined advanced areas (financial instruments, hedging, deferred tax and groups). Tuition is extremely exam focused and once a technical subject has been taught, we will develop your exam technique by teaching you exactly how to read, interpret and analyse the exam paper, before showing you how to structure and type your answer for each of the three CR questions. The three CR questions are very different from one another so we have devised the optimal exam strategy for each. The exam techniques you will be taught are those which enabled your tutor to win several prestigious ICAEW prizes and this tuition approach has resulted in several of our students also winning prizes.

Kieran is definitely one of the best, if not the best tutor one can ever have when preparing for the ICAEW exams. His invaluable teachings, notes and video classes helped me to attaining the Top Scorer award for BPT and CR for Southeast Asia!

None of this would have been possible without Kieran's help. Hoping to becoming ACA-exam qualified with Kieran by July 2024!

CR VIDEO COURSE

(2023)

The expected release date for the 2024 course is 18 March 2024. If you wish, you may decide to purchase the 2023 video course now so that you can make a start with your exam preparation. Any updated video course content will be uploaded once available so you will automatically have access. We will also include a separate video explaining any significant syllabus changes (if applicable). 

Our prize-winning Senior ACA Tutor Kieran Doe has recorded our CR video course. Each class focuses on a frequently examined topic and teaches the key technical concepts in a simplified way before demonstrating the optimal exam technique by working through recent past exam questions in full. You will be taught the most efficient way to read, interpret and analyse the exam paper and most importantly, the specific technique you should use when generating points and typing your answer in the exam. This includes advice on how to allocate your time to each part of the question and how to make effective use of the open book notes.

Having understood the technical content and how you should be approaching a particular type of CR exam question, you can then go and attempt similar past exam questions to put these prize-winning exam technique skills to the test and watch your marks drastically improve - hopefully you will join our growing list of prize winners! Our CR Master Plan (see below) categorises all the past exam questions by topic to make it easy for you to practice similar questions after each class. This enables you to conquer CR by mastering one area at a time.

The course is structured so that it covers each examinable area and each type of CR exam question. As there is a substantial amount of assumed knowledge for most CR topics, we have included our FAR and AA tutorials as part of the course. We suggest that you watch the classes in the order set out below. However, if you are already comfortable on a particular topic then you may want to skip the Professional Level revision class. 

 

You can watch the course introduction and a free sample class below.

STUDY MATERIALS AND OPEN BOOK NOTES

Our prize-winning ACA tutor Kieran Doe has developed our unique CR materials which include technical notes specifically designed for use in the exam, master plans, exam technique guidance and model answers.

Financial Reporting Technical Notes and Audit Risks and Procedures

Our CR technical notes concisely summarise the technical content so that you can quickly look up the information you need in the exam. The notes include easy-to-use financial reporting notes and audit risks and procedures for each subject area, as well as calculation proformas and reminders. 

A small sample can be found at the bottom of this page. Student feedback can be found at the top of this page.

CR Master Plans

To ensure that you use your study time as effectively as possible, we have broken the syllabus down into examinable topics so that you can allocate your time to specific examinable topics. For each topic, we have listed the recent past exam questions which examined the topic. There is also a reference to how frequently the topic is examined, the extent to which it is examined and the CR video class which demonstrates the exact exam technique to use for that type of question.

Exam Technique Guidance

We have included our valuable exam technique guidance which contains detailed advice on how you should approach CR exam questions in order to score top marks. This includes detailed advice on how to answer financial statement analysis questions, ethics questions and 'other' audit questions (non-risks and procedures audit questions).

Model Answer

Kieran has worked through the July 2021 exam in full so you see exactly what you can realistically produce within the time limit and under exam conditions; the ICAEW Question Bank answers are not what students are expected to produce.

 

The answer comes with an accompanying explanation of how to allocate your time to each part of the question; how to answer several parts of the question together in order to save time; how to structure your answer; the writing style to use; and the types of points to include in your answer.
