Hi I am CA student. I want to know, What is meant by owner-managed entity? Is the FRF for SMEs TM framework only intended for owner-managed entities?
Dear Friend, as far as your query is concerned that What is meant by owner-managed entity? Is the FRF for SMEs TM framework only intended for owner-managed entities? Let me informed that An owner-managed entity is a closely held company in which the people who own a controlling ownership interest in the entity are substantially the same set of people who run the company (in contrast with public companies where the ownership and the management are clearly separated). Owner-managed businesses represent the majority of all businesses in the United States. Often, owner-managed entities do not have a qualified CPA on staff. Rather, the owner-managers or bookkeepers maintain the entities’ books and records. The term owner-managed was selected to help describe the typical entity that would benefit from using the FRF for SMEs framework. The AICPA does not intend to scope out entities that may not be owner managed from using the FRF for SMEs framework. Entities that have operational management who are not the owners may find that the framework is an ideal choice for their financial reporting needs and circumstances. Hope answer was helpful to you Regards, Arjun Pratap Singh
