Understanding the GAAP Codification Update

Webinar: ID# 1012946
Recorded CD
About This Course:
The official launch of the FASB Codification began on July 1, 2009. On that date the codification became the official single source of authoritative nongovernmental U.S. GAAP. The codification will be effective for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009.

The codification will supersede existing FASB, AICPA, EITF and related literature, which means there will no longer be a GAAP hierarchy. Instead, there will only be one level of authoritative GAAP, excluding the guidance issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, all other literature will be nonauthoritative. Preparers and auditors of financial reports must be aware of and prepared for the transition to the new codification.

This live webinar will give you the knowledge and skills needed to thoroughly understand and confidently navigate and conduct research using the new FASB Accounting Standards Codification.

  • You will be able to describe accounting standards codification structure.
