Description

Designed for accounting and attestation practitioners at all levels in both public accounting and business and industry, this course provides a comprehensive review of recent standard setting activities of the FASB and AICPA. In addition to providing a status update on Topic 606 implementation, this course will bring you up-to-date on recently issued FASB and AICPA standards. The course also provides many hands-on examples and illustrations to help you apply the guidance in practice. In the course, you will review all issued FASB ASUs which will become effective over the next few years, including a deeper dive into Topic 842, Leases and Topic 326 on Impairment. The course will also discuss best practices from the adoption of Topic 606 and ways to both sustain and improve the reporting of revenue going forward. Next, we will discuss new and proposed AICPA standards related to auditor’s report and other topics, proposed changes to the SSARS in order to comply with international standards and provide an update on peer review and other audit quality issues. Lastly, we’ll cover other topics of interest to accountants in both industry and public accounting.
