Description

In a few cases, FASB's Private Company Council (PCC) has developed approaches that simplify accounting for nonpublic companies. Additionally, for early adopters of the AICPA's Financial Reporting Framework for Small- and Medium-Sized Entities (FRF for SMEs), accounting for many areas has been significantly simplified. Attendees will be immersed in the key provisions of derivatives, hedging and interest rate swaps; goodwill and impairment testing; and revenue recognition.

Discover going concern issues, the liquidation basis of accounting and other bases of accounting available to nonpublic entities, and address some of the traditional areas of accounting that have recently been revised.

In addition, a poll is taken at the beginning of each session to determine accounting topics that are most significant to you. Time is then allocated to discuss these areas. 

Materials are provided as an ebook.
