Description:

Understanding the GAAP Codification Update

The official launch of the FASB Codification began on July 1, 2009. On that date the codification became the official single source of authoritative nongovernmental U.S. GAAP. The codification will be effective for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009.

The codification will supersede existing FASB, AICPA, EITF and related literature, which means there will no longer be a GAAP hierarchy. Instead, there will only be one level of authoritative GAAP, excluding the guidance issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, all other literature will be nonauthoritative. Preparers and auditors of financial reports must be aware of and prepared for the transition to the new codification.

This live webinar will give you the knowledge and skills needed to thoroughly understand and confidently navigate and conduct research using the new FASB Accounting Standards Codification.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to describe accounting standards codification structure.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
