Course Description

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), a continuation of a reporting entity as a going concern is presumed as the basis for preparing financial statements unless and until the entity’s liquidation becomes imminent.

If and when an entity’s liquidation becomes imminent, financial statements should be prepared under the liquidation basis of accounting.

Even if an entity’s liquidation is not imminent, there may be conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern.

This online continuing education session will help you determine what guidelines should be followed to determine whether to disclose information about the relevant conditions and events.

In this online CPE webinar following major topics are covered:

  • Understand the effects of a going-concern audit note.
  • Know the levels of disclosure.
  • Review the principal conditions or events leading to “substantial doubt.”
  • Management’s evaluation of the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern
  • Management’s plans to mitigate liquidation risk.
  • Liquidation-based accounting rules.
  • Required disclosures.
