Course Description

What is used for buying, selling, and investing and is untraceable, anonymous, and technologically confusing?

The answer uses different terms, but mean basically the same thing: cryptocurrency, virtual currency, digital currency, and cryptocoin.

All describe a relatively new medium of economic exchange used for buying, selling, exchanging, and investing

It's a brave new cyber world that we live in, one where virtual currency exists to exchange and pay for things globally. Certainly, this throws a whole new monkey wrench into basic accounting platforms and raises a few questions. How is cryptocurrency handled by a bookkeeper, and just what in the world is it anyway?

Virtual currency is a hot topic for both accounting and tax purposes. This online continuing education course will take a look at the accounting issues being raised as well as the recommendations from an AICPA task force. The FASB itself has not yet weighed into the accounting for digital assets or crypto currency so the AICPA has provided nonauthoritative guidance to assist preparers and auditors, which you should understand.

In this online CPE/CE course we will also switch gears and address some of the tax issues. Similarly, virtual currency is an emerging area from a tax perspective. At the end of this online CPE course, attendees will have a strong understanding of the nuances of digital currency from both the perspectives.

Key topics covered in this online CPE/CE webinar:

  • Accounting for Crypto currency.
  • Accounting for sale of Digital Asset.
  • Tax implications of Crypto Currency.
