Topic:ASC 718 in Motion: The FASB's Amendments

Contact:Robin Bernstein
Contact Phone:7048165099

We are excited to announce that Paul Bailey from Red Hat will be presenting at our next luncheon meeting on November 17, 2016.  

Over a decade ago, the FASB required companies to adopt FAS 123(R). Little has changed over the years, although the standards were recodified into ASC 718 in 2009.  In 2014, FASB embarked on its simplification initiative, to reduce costs and complexity for issuers. The newly revised standards have been finalized and will become effective over the next few years. Paul will highlight the amendments to ASC 718 with a focus on practical implementation, including key decisions companies need to make as well as impacts on forecasting and budgeting.

Among other topics, this program will include:

  • Discussion of the changes and how they will affect issuers;
  • Timeline for transition to the new standards;
  • Tips and best practices for managing the changes.
