Description

New Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs) related to U.S. GAAP are issued on a regular basis. It can be time-consuming and confusing to keep up-to-date on the resulting impact on financial statements and disclosures, especially when many changes relate primarily to public business entities, larger companies, or specific industries. This course will focus on explaining the most significant U.S. GAAP updates that are relevant to small- and medium-size private entities.

Who should take this program?
