2022 Audit & Accounting and Federal Tax Updates

Join us for our Spring Audit & Accounting Update. We will also be hosting a Fall Federal Tax Update and Fall Audit & Accounting Update. During these sessions, you will learn more about recent ASUs and current federal tax topics.

(Note: If you join us for the Audit & Accounting Update this spring, the fall sessions will cover similar content, just in a different format. You are only eligible to receive CPE credit for attending one A&A Update series, not both the spring and fall sessions.)

Audit & Accounting Update

One constant in accounting is change. Standard setters are continually working with financial statement users and other stakeholders to improve accounting and financial reporting as well as the standards that auditors and accountants follow when reporting on financial statements.

Our spring Audit and Accounting update covers all ASUs effective for 2022 financial statements and beyond, as well as accounting issues related to Pass-Through Entity Taxes, Employee Retention Credit (ERC) and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and changes to audit, review and attestation standards.

Topics covered:

  • Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. While the ASU will have a significant effect on financial institutions, it will also impact non-financial institution entities that have certain financial instruments (including trade receivables) included in the scope of the update. The ASU shifts away from current GAAP of waiting until credit losses are probable to a model based on expected losses.
  • Leases (Topic 842): The new standard provides significant changes regarding accounting, presentation, and disclosure for leases. It’s important to understand the potential impact the standard could have on your entity from both a financial reporting and a tax perspective. This session will also address frequently asked questions regarding implementation as well as implementation lessons learned.
  • Various other ASUs covering topics that include accounting guidance, updates, and implementation observations for intangible assets, revenue and receivable recognition, derivatives and hedging, income taxes and much more.
  • Pass-Through Entity Taxes, Employer Retention Credit (ERC) and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) issues and questions.
  • A summary of the changes to audit, review and attestation standards.

Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize updates from the Financial Standards Accounting Board
  • Discuss impacts of these changes to standard accounting practices
  • Determine new processes to adapt to these changes
  • Describe the updates to the audit, review and attestation standards
