Preparing accounts for such a group becomes a very complex operation that could involve bringing together and summarizing the accounts of subsidiaries with differing accounting systems. All accounts are required to conform to very detailed and complex requirements of the Companies Act (CAP 486) and also to the requirements of the many International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs).
