    Accounting for Income Taxes has evolved into a complex set of standards that have caused computational difficulties and confusion to all practitioners, particularly relating to private companies. This program has been developed by Gene Ristaino, CPA/ABV/CFF, MT, ABAR from numerous years of experience with previous standards, including the original "income statement" approach (APB #11) and the transition to the current "asset and liability" approach (FASB #109) currently reflected in FASB codification 740. The course provides a practical approach to navigate through the maze and simplify the basic calculations and financial statement presentation.

    Virtual Gulf Shores 20 Credits

    The Summer Education Conference is moving! Our annual beach conference is going green and moving to the eco-friendly, sustainably designed Lodge at Gulf State Park.

    As always, we’ll offer 4 hours of CPE each morning, leaving you free to enjoy your afternoons and evenings. Mark your calendar and make plans to join us this summer!

    Reserve without reservation.

    We don’t know what July will look like when it comes to the COVID-19 crisis, but we are optimistic that this event will go on as planned, and in a safe way. The beaches are private, so it will be easy to enjoy your own area. We will be adding additional meeting room capacity so we can put more space between attendees. The hotel staff will be taking measures to make sure guests can adhere to social distancing guidelines during check-in, in common spaces, and while doing activities.<?xml:namespace prefix="o" />

    However, if conditions in July are still unsafe and it becomes necessary to cancel, ASCPA will issue full refunds. In addition, The Lodge will allow cancellations up to 5 days before the check-in date for full refunds.  Book Your Room Here.

    So, reserve with confidence and book your room today. Fingers crossed we will all get to see each other in July. Until then, be well.
