2. If you are an enterprise that was founded in 2012 or 2013, you can optionally present the 2013 financial statements based on IAS or NSFOMSP
Enterprises applying a simplified form of financial reporting are not subject to a mandatory audit and they are the enterprises that in the current or the previous year do not exceed the indicators of two of the following criteria:
- balance sheet value of assets as of December 31 – BGN 1.5 million;
