Dear members,


Hope you all will be fine. I need help in matter summarised as under.

A company has a closed his financial year with a qualified audited report that balances are doubtful and required to be provided / written-offf on the basis of direct confirmations by the parties. In the current year Company has decided to write-off the preceding year's balance by restating the comparitive figures. Can it do this? Is it a prior period error under IAS-8?
