Join us for a NEW two-day intermediate course with live group instruction on ASC740: Accounting for Income Taxes. Based upon the success of our Tax Accounting ASC740 Primer, the hands-on problem solving approach has been adopted in the development of this course. Cases and problems have been developed covering technical issues not covered in the Primer course (e.g. the “true-up” calculation, interim reporting, business combinations). As well as a more in-depth focus on other technical issues (e.g. “uncertain tax positions”, “permanently reinvested” criteria).
Benefits of Attending:
• Discuss and calculate the impact of true up calculations in the tax provision process
• Understand the major component issues in calculating tax provision amounts for interim periods
• Review the income tax expense consequences associated with business combinations particularly regarding purchase price allocation and the recognition of deductible and non-deductible goodwill
• Explain and describe tax positions that meet the ASC740 criteria of “uncertain”
• Discuss the disclosure in the financial statements of tax positions that are considered uncertain
• Understand the considerations and principles involved in booking a valuation allowance against a deferred tax asset
• Describe the pertinent issues that are relevant in the “permanently reinvested” criteria associated with the earnings of a foreign subsidiary
Why You Should Attend
Bloomberg BNA has developed a new course using a case study and problem approach to US GAAP income tax accounting (ASC740). The complexity of this technical area cannot be overstated. There is a tremendous need for tax professionals working in the area to understand the ASC740 calculations in light of the varied issues and situations that are encountered. As ASC740 is often described as a “hands on” area, this course has been developed emphasizing problems and exercises to be worked on during the course.
