Four for Fall: Leases Before and After New U.S. GAAP: Case Studies of the Impact of Applying Changes in Lease Accounting and Financial Reporting

Description

The new accounting standard for revenue recognition was released in 2014 but its effective date is upon us. With the issuance of FASB ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, FASB has completed a convergence project. For years, revenue recognition has been the cause of audit failures and the focus of corporate abuse and fraud allegations. This course will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the framework for revenue recognition built around the core principle that is applied in a five-step process. In addition, understanding the changes and new requirements is critical for successful implementation of this new standard. Supported by practical examples, this course will assist you in avoiding revenue recognition traps and provide you with latest FASB guidance. Recent updates to this course include industry-specific examples taken from the AICPA Audit and Accounting Guide Revenue Recognition.
