US GAAP Essentials - Course 2003

December 17-19

Las Vegas, NV

 

Knowledge of US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) is vital to those entities that currently are or, plan to be, publicly listed in the US. Subsidiaries of US parent companies also have an important need to understand US GAAP in order to comply with consolidation rules and corporate information requirements. Additionally, an understanding of US GAAP will help all firms to implement upcoming changes in accounting standards. The US FASB and the IASB are committed to convergence of their respective pronouncements into a common set of global accounting standards in order to provide transparency, consistency, and comparability in financial reporting. US GAAP will therefore have a strong influence on new global GAAP as it is developed. This three-day course provides a rigorous review of major technical US GAAP requirements, including pronouncements of:

  • The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB)
  • The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
  • The Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF)
