Event Details

Making Sense of ESPP Accounting  

Presented by Equity Methods & Computershare

ESPP’s are a great way to encourage employee ownership, but can be tricky to account for, particularly when the plan has certain design features. These back-to-back sessions will cover the basics of accounting and financial reporting for ESPPs, including data needs, expense recognition, and earnings per share. We will also cover more complex issues of fair value, changes to contributions, and rollovers vs. resets.
