Financial Executives International Daily2017 Continues Accounting Change for Financial Leaders

The past year has brought significant accounting change to preparers as they faced a slew of accounting standards updates.

The past year has brought significant accounting change to preparers as they faced a slew of accounting standards updates. So far this year, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has issued seven updates to current guidance — after releasing 20 changes in 2016.

In the face of these updates, early adopters of the new revenue recognition standard are reporting results for the first time under the new guidance, while others look to follow closely in their footsteps. And at the same time, preparers are struggling to operationalize and implement the new leases standard.

How are you managing and preparing for these changes?

FEI is hosting a two-day conference on June 27 and 28 in Philadelphia to spotlight these and other important accounting changes. This two-day event will shine a light on the implementation of the new revenue recognition and leases standards, and explore how preparers are preparing for these major changes while touching on important accounting updates addressing derivatives, hedging, classification, measurement and other topics.

Keynoting the event, FASB Chairman Russ Golden will address the FASB’s current future agenda and impact on overall accounting change.

This two-day conference is designed to help you, the preparer, adopt and operationalize these significant accounting changes efficiently and effectively. You’ll learn directly from industry leaders who’ll share their experiences and offer practical solutions for dealing with accounting change disruption.
