Even with the effective date of Topic 606, it continues to be a very dynamic time in the world of accounting and financial reporting, with many significant new accounting standards becoming effective around the same time. Designed for practitioners and their staff, whether in public accounting or business and industry, this course provides a comprehensive review and update of the FASB’s Big 3 accounting and reporting areas: leases, financial instruments, and sustaining the efforts related to revenue recognition.

We will focus on recently issued Accounting Standards Updates, covering these critical areas of your practice or organization. We will provide deep-dive implementation guidance related to leases and financial instruments, including hedge and derivative accounting and impairment, as well as review best practices, lingering implementation issues, and ways to sustain the recording of revenue under Topic 606.
