Attendees should have a good working knowledge of the basics of US GAAP. Our US GAAP - Introduction course provides this.
The application of US GAAP can lead to many challenges in practice. These will vary from industry to industry, with a range of industry-specific guidance available. However, there are certain issues that create problems across all sectors. These include accounting for pensions, stock compensation and financial instruments. The process of preparing group accounts can also create a number of issues.
This course examines these topics and provides practical advice on applying the relevant guidance.
Learning outcomes include obtaining a greater understanding of:
- Group issues
- Accounting for pensions
- Accounting for stock compensation
- Accounting for financial instruments
- The ‘roadmap’ for convergence between IFRS and US GAAP
"A CPD certificate of completion will be provided by BPP Professional Education Limited upon request, following attendance."
