Virtual Revenue Recognition Conference: Past Issues and Emerging Trends

This week, Connor Group’s Aleks Zabreyko and Caroline Yan are joining ACS at their two-day Revenue Recognition virtual conference, on March 23 and 24. Aleks and Caroline will lead attendees through an interactive discussion on a series of real-world scenarios related to ASC 606. They will share their recommended solutions and address the latest developments in key areas, significant changes, scope, disclosure, and impacts. Because best practices continue to evolve and there are a number of areas where companies are still searching for answers, there will be plenty of examples in this detailed case study. Participants will gain insight into the latest accounting rule changes as well as a greater understanding of the big picture concepts from an SEC perspective.
