Description:

Some assets and liabilities can now be reported at their fair values, which is a significant divergence from the common practice of only reporting historical costs. Fair Value Accounting helps the accountant sort out the situation by defining when fair value measurements should be performed, the parameters for measuring fair value, and how to disclose this information in the financial statements. The course also notes those situations in which fair value is used to evaluate whether assets have been impaired. Table of Contents

  • Overall I was very pleased with the course. Previously I knew just enough about pivot tables to be dangerous. Now I see the power that they have and I feel much more confident using pivot tables. The course materials were very clear and well prepared. I’ll be looking at your website for future CPE hours.
