Course Description

Goodwill is an intangible asset that is associated with the purchase of one company by another. Specifically, goodwill is the portion of the purchase price that is higher than the sum of the net fair value of all of the assets purchased in the acquisition and the liabilities assumed in the process. The value of a company’s brand name, solid customer base, good customer relations, good employee relations, and proprietary technology represent some reasons why goodwill exists

A challenge of goodwill accounting is that it’s treated one way under tax accounting and another under GAAP (“book”) accounting therefore it is a hot topic for both GAAP and tax purposes. On the financial reporting side, FASB has been wrestling with how goodwill, once recognized, comes off the balance sheet. FASB is now offering amortization for private entities and non-profits in lieu of goodwill impairment testing. We expect future standard setting for all entities in the near future.

On the tax side, the sticking point is related to how much goodwill should be recognized at purchase and how the purchase price is allocated between assets.

This online CPE/CE course will cover these topics and more as it explores both the accounting and tax implications of goodwill.

Key topics covered in this online CPE/CE webinar:

  • Accounting for Goodwill
  • When should Goodwill be tested for impairment?
  • What is Goodwill impairment loss?
  • How to simplify the test for goodwill impairment?
  • What are the two phases of Goodwill impairment?
  • What are the tax implications of Goodwill?
