Course Description

Knowing the accounting principles is only half the story for most accountants in public accounting. You must also understand the myriad of rules relating the reporting requirements for audits. This course will cover the nuts and bolts of these pronouncements as well as cover the theory required to make proper decisions.

Topics will include the latest SAS updates, risk assessment, analytical procedures and critical thinking skills. Special attention will be placed on the provisions most important for compliance, including documentation. We will also discuss some troublesome topics as well as other reporting topics.
