Known as the "Singapore Financial Reporting Standard for Small Entities” or SFRS for SE, this is a separate set of accounting standards issued by The Accounting Standards Council (“ASC”) for use by smaller entities in Singapore.
A Singapore-based entity qualifies to adopt the SFRS for SE if it is not publicly accountable and meets the criteria of being a "small entity" based on the satisfaction of at least two out of three quantitative benchmarks:
i) Total annual revenue not exceeding S$10 million;
ii) Total gross assets not exceeding S$10 million; and
iii) Total number of employees not exceeding 50.
An entity is deemed "publicly accountable" under the following conditions:
i) Its debt or equity instruments are traded in a public market or it is in the process of issuing such instruments for public trading; or
ii) It is a deposit-taking entity, holds assets in a fiduciary capacity for a broad group of outsiders as a primary business (common for banks, insurance companies, securities brokers/dealers, mutual funds, and investment banks); or
iii) It is a public company as defined in the Singapore Companies Act (Cap. 50); or
iv) It is a charity as defined under the Charities Act (Cap. 37).
An entity is qualified to adopt the SFRS for SE if it meets the stipulated criteria consistently over the preceding two consecutive years. However, a newly established company is eligible to apply the SFRS for SE during its initial two years of incorporation, given that it is not considered publicly accountable.
