 Gear Up Accounting


  • Our world has changed.

    The 2017 Gear Up accounting course will cover the new requirements and changes to our practices. We all need to understand and know how to practice with the new level of accounting service allowed entitled “the preparation” which can be issued without the need of an accountant's report!  SSARS no. 21, effective December 2015, established this major change and many other changes to compilations and reviews. Stay ahead!


    • This course covers engagement letters, totally revised management representation letters and  the dramatically reconstructed versions of the accountant's report.  Other topics include: Coverage of special purpose financial reporting framework (formerly OCBOA)
    • Note disclosures: how much detail should there be?
    • Practice continuation issues, how to transition ownership of an accounting practice
    • Accounting in the construction industry
    • Peer review: how should a firm prepare for it?
    • Learn about how a peer reviewer evaluates your practice by examining for yourself the peer reviewers’ checklist
    • Statement on standards for accounting services
    • Practice management: value billing versus hourly billing


    GAAP update:

    • Will fair value accounting replace historical cost?
    • When do variable interest entities require financial statement consolidation?
    • What are the new leasing standards, changes in revenue recognition concepts, tests for
    • Impairment and how does each impact disclosure on OCBOA statements?
