Course Description

You don’t want to miss ‘Rocket’ Rod Redding’s presentation of accounting and auditing changes that have occurred during late 2019 and 2020. Rod consistently receives positive comments, including ‘Makes a dry topic interesting and relevant,’ and ‘Never thought I’d look forward to an A&A update, but I do Rod’s!’. Rod goes through changes issued by FASB, GASB, the PCAOB, and the AICPA, presenting interesting observations about the standards and leaving everyone glad they attended the course. Course topics will be updated on an ongoing basis.

Highlights include:

  • Review of FASB’s and GASB’s Accounting Standards Updates (ASU) issued in 2019 and 2020
  • Update on the current FASB and GASB projects
  • A look at non-GAAP reporting issues
  • Private company financial reporting
  • Auditing Standards Board and Public Company Accounting Oversight Board-issued guidance
  • New standards from the PCAOB for auditors of public companies and the AICPA for audits, compilations, and reviews
  • Other bits and pieces from around the accounting profession
