Revenue Recognition: Are You Prepared?
Field of Study: Auditing
The new accounting standard on revenue recognition is historic in its breadth as well as in its impact across industries. As a result, those who are involved in the preparation or auditing of financial statements should be especially interested in the AICPA’s recent audit risk alert on revenue recognition. Robert Gould, a managing director in the internal audit and financial advisory solution practice of Protiviti, analyzes the guidance and advises you and your team on how to prepare successfully for this impending change.

Financial Accounting: Where It’s Been and Where It’s Headed
Field of Study: Accounting
Many financial managers complained of “standards overload” after the storm of recent guidance on high-impact accounting issues, such as revenue recognition and leases. While the standard setters realize that the pace of change needs to slow down, there has been no shortage of recent statements issued in the past year by FASB. Dave Christensen, a managing consultant for Resources Global Professionals in the area of finance and accounting, briefs you on what the new standards are as well as on when they will be effective.

Sales and Use Taxes: New Challenges for Your Business
Field of Study: Taxes
Based on increased compliance efforts, state tax revenues did increase again last year. Yet, at the same time, it is estimated that state and local governments were actually shortchanged by almost $26 billion from uncollected sales taxes. Patrick Falle, global chief evangelist for Avalara, Inc., details what your organization can and should be doing in order to remain in compliance with the states’ expanded emphasis on the collection of sales and transaction taxes.

How Enterprise Security Can Enable Your Business
Field of Study: Management Services
As we have experienced an unprecedented surge in the frequency and magnitude of cyber attacks, organizations are focusing increased attention and resources on enterprise security. Yet, financial executives often regard unauthorized access to IT systems as just another expense that is associated with risk and insurance. Ron Temske, vice president of security solutions for Logicalis U.S., explains why many executives now consider enterprise security to, in fact, be an enabler of business.
