UNDERSTAND | Accounting Rules for Revenue Recognition Have Changed

A new accounting standard issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB 606) will soon require a consistent, single model for recognizing revenue and disclosure requirements on financial statements. This is significantly different than the all-events test used for tax purposes. The new standard is effective January 1, 2019 for private companies – That’s right around the corner!


PLAN | Leases, Large and Small, Will Now Be On the Balance Sheet

It’s a whole new world for lessors and lessees under a new accounting standard (FASB 842). In 2020, nearly all leases will need to be disclosed on the balance sheet – from buildings right down to autos and copiers. In doing so, it could have a major effect on business banking relationships and covenants—and, in turn, affect access to new capital. For just about every businesses – but particularly those in manufacturing, construction, franchising and technology – this change has far-reaching implications.


MANAGE | Guidance for the Impact on Financials, Covenants and Lease Contacts

Through this educational forum on Wednesday July 18th, we will provide attendees with awareness and guidance these key issues and how they may influence your business decisions going forward. Now is the time to dig in and get up to speed. You’ll come away from this event with an understanding of the rule changes, and also how to prepare your management teams and advisors to help you with implementation.
