Lease accounting has long been regarded as unsatisfactory. A second joint FASB/IASB exposure draft has been developed to address the shortcomings and as well as the criticisms from preparers and users. It rebuilds lease accounting from the ground up and will have a major effect on clients and their numbers. This course provides a comprehensive analysis of the exposure draft and its impact on your company and/or clients.
In addition to lease accounting we will discuss revenue recognition. Revenue is probably the most important number in the financial statements. After years of effort a joint FASB/IASB standard has been issued. It rebuilds revenue accounting from the ground up. This course provides a comprehensive analysis of this guidance and its impact on your company and/or clients.
