Adoption of Financial Reporting Standard (FRS) 101 and 102 – Reduced Disclosure Framework

Idox announces that following the publication of FRS 100 ‘Application of Financial Reporting Requirements’ by the Financial Reporting Council, the Company is required to change the accounting framework for its entity financial statements and those of its subsidiaries which currently adopt United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Standards (UK GAAP).

The parent company’s financial statements for the year ended 31 October 2015, as set out on pages 75 to 83 of the Company’s 2015 Annual Report, were prepared in accordance with UK Generally Accepted Accounting Practice (“UK GAAP”). The 2015 Annual Report can be found on the Company’s website at

It is intended for the year ended 31 October 2016 and future years that the parent company and its trading subsidiaries adopt FRS 101 ‘Reduced Disclosure Framework’, based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union, and that dormant subsidiaries will adopt FRS 102 ‘Reduced Disclosure Framework’.

Idox’s consolidated financial statements are unaffected by this change, and will continue to be prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the European Union.

Objections to the use of the disclosure exemptions may be served by a shareholder or shareholders holding in aggregate 5% or more of the total allotted shares of the Company in writing to Jane Mackie, Company Secretary, at its registered office (Idox plc, Second Floor, 1310 Waterside, Arlington Business Park, Theale, RG7 4SA) not later than 23 October 2016.
