Adjusting Events: If the conditions giving rise to the event existed at the end of the reporting period, then the event is an adjusting event. Non Adjusting events: If the conditions giving rise to the event arose after the end of the reporting period, then the event is non- adjusting event. Treatment for Adjusting Events Amounts recognised in the financial statements must be amended to reflect the adjusting events. Treatment for Non-Adjusting Events Amounts recognised in the financial statements must not be amended for non-adjusting events. Treatment of Dividend A dividend declared after the end of the reporting period is a non- adjusting event.
