SEC Revenue Recognition Developments - What Public Company CFOs, Legal and Accounting Need to Know for 2015

03 December 2014
Hosted By: DLA Piper's Securities Enforcement Group

In 2015, public companies will begin implementing policies in anticipation of the new revenue recognition standard. In light of the SEC's increased focus on public company financial reporting and accounting issues, understanding the new standard, related compliance issues, and best practices is more important than ever. On 3 December 2014, DLA Piper's Securities Enforcement Group hosted a complimentary webinar featuring a panel of experts who discussed the impacts of the SEC's growing scrutiny. NERA Affiliated Academic Dr. Jerry Arnold, Emeritus Professor of Accounting at the University of Southern California, was invited to participate in the discussion. The panel discussed a number of significant topics, including: the new revenue recognition standard's greater reliance on professional judgment; recent updates on Accounting Quality Management and the Financial Reporting and Audit Task Force; and SEC Enforcement and Corp Fin priorities regarding financial reporting. The panel also provided advice on best compliance practices and how to plan for 2015 and the years to come.
