Course Description

One of the biggest and most frustrating standard revisions involves the accounting for leases. The new lease standard, in essence, requires all leases to be recognized on the statement of position of lesees.

In this course, Jeff Sailor will bring his truly unique presentation style to explains the standard from beginning to end, including the reasons why the standard was issued. In addition, he will include his signature video parodies, which are designed to keep you awake and reinforce the material.
