Join Lewis Fisher as he walks through the updates to US GAAP impacting the 2022 calendar year end reporting period. This session will be unique as we look sequentially at the accounting standard updates versus a topical approach. To ensure all recent pronouncements are captured, we will revisit standards issued in late 2021, to ensure you are alert to changes that could impact your reporting. Discussion will be given to existing standards originating from the FASB’s Private Company Council and how these can streamline reporting requirements.
