As a professional who performs highly specialized benefit plan audits it's crucial that you maintain a knowledge level that surpasses what is necessary to perform a financial statement audit.

Join us for our annual Employee Benefits Workshop. Sessions include A&A Update for EBP Plans, Peer Review Insights, Participant Testing, and update directly from the Department of Labor.

This class is designed for those professionals who will never do accounting and auditing stuff in the remainder of their careers yet need to meet a regulatory burden. Recent pronouncements from the FASB are presented and discussed from a perspective that allows a non A&A person to understand what's coming on their way in terms of financial statement treatment of items that may result in a different tax treatment including the new revenue standard and leasing changes. Tax professionals may actually have an educational and fun time meeting the regulatory requirements!
