Designed For:
Practicing CPAs and accounting professionals in business and industry that prepare, compile, review or audit financial statements
Prerequisite:

Basic understanding of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles

One major objective of financial reporting is to ensure that financial statement users have complete information to make reasonable financial decisions, including the likelihood and magnitude of future events and outcomes on the uncertainty of the current financial picture. ASU 2014-15 related to going concern disclosure was fully effective for fiscal years ending on or after December 15, 2016, and interim periods thereafter. This new accounting standard is applicable to all entities that prepare financial statements under U.S. GAAP, regardless of whether the entity undergoes an audit. In fact, an entity that merely receives a compilation or review report on special purpose framework financial statements (like cash or income tax basis) could be impacted by newly-required disclosure of going concern uncertainty. In addition, SAS No. 132 was also recently issued for updating the auditor's responsibility for evaluating going concern uncertainty in a financial statement audit. SAS No. 132 is effective for audits of periods ending on or after December 15, 2017.
