About This Course:
Acquisition of a business may occur infrequently and when a company buys a new business, or a company is acquired, the accountant may be asked to record the transaction.

They may not understand how to get started to account for the transaction in accordance with US GAAP or how to prepare documentation that will satisfy the company's auditor.

This webinar helps the person responsible for accounting for acquisitions of a business and consolidations identify when a business acquisition has occurred and understand key considerations in applying the accounting requirements for the acquisition.

This material also discusses key considerations when establishing a plan to tackle the complex accounting and valuation issues, and preparing for the company's auditor. Failure to consider key parts of the accounting guidance and properly plan and document a business acquisition often leads to wasted time, effort and frustration when undergoing a financial statement audit.
