Course Description

Think segment reporting is just about disclosure? Think again. In this webinar we go back to the basics to discuss the broader impact it can have on your financial statements.

Segment reporting is the reporting of the operating segments of a company in the disclosures accompanying its financial statements.

In financial reporting, a segment is a part of the business that has separate financial information and a separate management strategy. Segments may be geographic, line of business or departmental. Public companies are required to report by segment in the notes of financial statements.

This webinar will be an overview of:

  • The accounting and reporting requirements with respect to segment reporting.
  • The accounting standards applicable to identification and disclosure of reportable segments (FASB in ASC topic 280).

  • The terminology relevant to segment reporting

This webinar also provides information on disclosure requirements as well as illustrative examples of segment disclosures for companies in different industries.
