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 compilations and review. To add to the confusion, there is now a new level of service known as a preparation, which has no report! 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 most important issues related to preparations, compilations and reviews as well as the general requirements that apply to all SSARS engagements. Special attention will be placed on the provisions most important for compliance. We will also discuss some troublesome topics as well as other reporting topics.
