New Rules, New Opportunities

Course Description:
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) recently issued ASC 606 – Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which outlines new revenue recognition standards for businesses across all industries, including manufacturing and distribution. These rules will impact when and how businesses recognize revenue for financial accounting and tax purposes, and are effective for some businesses beginning in 2018. In addition, the new Section 199A rules found in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act have the potential to impact manufacturers and distributors. Planning now for these new rules will provide the best outcome for success in finding new opportunities.

Learning Objectives:
  - Discuss the new revenue recognition rules
  - Outline the changes between the old and new rules
  - Identify the potential financial accounting and tax impacts of the changes
  - Review Section 199A and how it impacts manufacturers and distributors
