Course Description

The financial markets depend on high quality financial reporting.  A fundamental pillar of high quality public financial reporting is reliable, comparable financial statements that are free from material misstatement.  Accounting changes and errors in previously filed financial statements can affect the comparability of financial statements.

In this online CPE webinar, we will provide an overview of the types of accounting changes that affect financial statements, as well as the disclosure and reporting considerations for error corrections.

An accounting change can be a change in an accounting principle, an accounting estimate, or the reporting entity.

An error in recognition, measurement, presentation, or disclosure in financial statements resulting from mathematical mistakes, mistakes in application of GAAP, or oversight or misuse of facts that existed at the time the financial statements were prepared.

This online continuing education course will examine both the accounting and tax implications of accounting changes and errors. FASB provides different guidance depending on the type of accounting change. We will explore the major types of accounting changes including change in estimate, change in accounting principles, and change in reporting entity. We also discuss the correction of an error.

The online CPE/CE course will also focus to examine how accounting changes and errors impact taxes including a review of the Form 3115. You’ll leave this CPE course with an understanding of how to properly account for errors and changes for both tax and GAAP.
