We will walk through the updates to US GAAP impacting the 2020 calendar year end reporting period, with a special focus on COVID-19 related impact on effective dates for several standards. This session will be unique as we will look sequentially at the accounting standard updates over the past two years, to ensure greater exposure to the variety of standards issued, versus considering from a topical standpoint. Beginning with the most recent additions in 2020, and then progressing to the updates issued in 2019 and 2018 which will now have an impact on reporting, this comprehensive discussion will ensure you are alert to changes that could impact your reporting.
