As IFRS is to private sector companies, so are standards of GRAP to the public sector.
But why have separate standards?
Standards of Generally Recognised Accounting Practice (GRAP) are accounting standards issued by the Accounting Standards Board (ASB). This a requirement of section 89 of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA). Standards of GRAP are applied to government departments, Parliament, municipalities and commissions just to name a few.
