FMN - 2018/January, Seg.1 - Accounting Change Disruption: The Role of FASB

Course Overview
After a deluge of guidance on high-impact accounting issues, the Financial Accounting Standards Board has embarked on a simplification initiative that may reduce cost and complexity in financial reporting, while maintaining or improving the quality of information reported to investors. Our cameras were on-hand at the FEI’s Current Financial Reporting Issues conference, as two FASB board members - Marc Siegel and Marsha Hunt - provided a candid appraisal of where the accounting standard setter has been and where it is going.

  • Identify the objectives of the FASB’s simplification initiative;
