About the course
Public company financial accounting and reporting professionals face their own set of unique challenges.
This seminar provides a sound grounding in SEC reporting and compliance for financial professionals at public companies or companies planning an IPO. It gives participants practical, hands-on experience preparing annual reports, quarterly reports, current reports, and the proxy statements in compliance with the SEC—even as the regulatory requirements change. Course materials are continuously updated to give timely perspectives on current issues on the SEC’s agenda, such as non-GAAP disclosures, the Disclosure Effectiveness Project, Dodd‑Frank initiatives, the JOBS Act, SEC guidance on the adoption of new account policies and trends in SEC comments.. Actual SEC filings are integrated into the course to demonstrate how the regulations are implemented in practice, and all participants receive an SEC Rules and Regulations Manual. The recent SEC amendments to simplify and update disclosure requirements will also be addressed during this two-day seminar.
