32nd Annual SEC Reporting & FASB Forum

Hosted By: Practising Law Institute

Why You Should Attend

Our Annual Forum will keep you up to date with the ever-changing world of SEC reporting, accounting, and auditing – just in time for annual reporting season, or your next 10-Q. The Division of Corporation Finance has been busy revising their non-GAAP guidance and finalizing the pay ratio rule, while reviewing thousands of 10-Ks. The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has adopted the narrow scope amendments and practical expedients, generated by the Transition Resource Group (TRG), for their Revenue Recognition standard. The Leases Standard is final, and the FASB is awash in simplification and other projects. Our SEC Reporting Roundtable will discuss important issues to consider for the upcoming 10-K and proxy. Our expert faculty will offer practical advice, based on real-world examples, to give you the information and tools needed to successfully meet the current and future challenges in accounting and SEC reporting.
