Following the publication of FRS 100 ‘Application of Financial Reporting Requirements’ by the Financial Reporting Council, Centrica plc is required to change its accounting framework for its company financial statements, which is currently UK GAAP, for its financial year commencing 1 January 2015. The Board considers that it is in the best interests of the Group for Centrica plc to adopt FRS 101 ‘Reduced Disclosure Framework’. No disclosures in the current UK GAAP financial statements would be omitted on adoption of FRS 101. A shareholder or shareholders holding in aggregate 5% or more of the total allotted shares in Centrica plc may serve objections to the use of the disclosure exemptions on Centrica plc, in writing, to its registered office (Millstream, Maidenhead Road, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 5GD) no later than 30 September 2015.
