Unveiling pre-tax profits of £216 million, the financial services group said the new rules would have knocked more than £10 million off its profit and loss account.

The new rules would have affected the timing of the group’s revenue recognition and its bad debt provisioning, it said, meaning that one of its subsidiaries, Yes Car Credit, would have seen a profit of £4.4 million under UK GAAP rules turn into a £2.7 million loss.
