Overview:The Financial Accounting Standards Board recently issued a proposed guidance that would help non-profit organizations apply Statement No. 142 to certain acquired assets that are required to be accounted for. Key questions to be addressed in this regulatory activity are: Is Statement No. 142 applicable to assets acquired in a not for profit acquisition? What criteria would determine post acquisition control? How about goodwill?
The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to help understand Statement No. 142 and its impact on your firm and the broader market. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour LIVE webcast.
