Webinar (CPA Crossings): Upholding Independence While Holding Your Client’s Hand (2020)

Description

Many entities look to their CPA as a trusted advisor when tackling complex accounting topics. This is more relevant now than ever. The FASB’s big three accounting pronouncements involving revenue recognition, leasing and credit losses have placed a magnifying glass on this reality. Practitioners need to exercise caution to ensure they maintain independence as they assist their review and audit clients with such matters, as well as with compilation engagements. This course addresses these issues and explores best practices and guidance provided by the AICPA’s Code of Professional Conduct.

Qualifies for IRS PTIN Credit.
