Course Description

As we all know, many businesses aim to achieve higher profits, increase their market share, expand internationally, diversify business risk, and reduce costs by acquiring a portion of another business's capital.

Those businesses/investors should use the equity method of accounting to measure their share in the investee's capital and operations when their ownership interest grants them a significant influence over the investee's operating and financial policies.

In this online CPE webinar, the speaker will discuss the equity method and explains how to distinguish the Equity-method investees from other investments.

This online continuing education course illustrates the accounting treatment for equity method investees step-by-step, including recognition criteria, subsequent measurement, the proper accounting treatment for the resulting gain/(loss), and dividends.

This online CPE course uses practical cases and examples that simplify the theory behind US GAAP standard ASC Topic 323 "Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures" and IFRS standard IAS 28 "Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures," highlighting the main differences between them.

Key topics covered in this online CPE webinar:

  • The Identification and the measurement of Equity Method Investments
  • The definition and the assessment of the significant influence.
  • The accounting treatment for impairment losses, intra-entity transactions, and the changes in investees' ownership level.
