FAS 141(R) and FAS 160
Overview:Starting December 15, 2008, FASB Statements No. 141 (Business Combinations), and No. 160 (Non-controlling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statement) will take into effect. These statements are designed to implement new methods that will affect financial reporting and accounting concepts of business combinations. As a result, transactions using financial statements under 141 (R) will be more significant, parallel, and complete. On the other hand, Statement 160 will regard as equity transactions those entered between an entity and non-controlling interests. Companies should have a comprehensive understanding of these statements as they launch new concepts that might affect significant transactions.
The Knowledge Congress is producing a two-hour teleconference that will discuss the complexities and significant concepts embodied in these statements. The event will feature speakers who are regarded as experts in the field of accounting and finance, including experts from the government.
