As a banking professional, you know that the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) has become more and more complex, especially for small- and medium-sized entities (SMEs) who are having a hard time keeping up with the changes.

With limited resources available to devote to the accounting function, software that does not provide GAAP-compliant record keeping, and management who are more committed to running their business than instituting processes necessary to implement newly issued standards, the SMEs you are servicing are looking for alternatives to GAAP. Thankfully, several such alternatives do exist (although, not every GAAP alternative is appropriate for every client).

Join ORBA’s Victoria L. Pitkin as she discusses the benefits and limitations of each of the recognized GAAP alternatives, including the Financial Reporting Framework for Small- and Medium-Sized Entities promulgated by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Seats are limited. Please register for the event before end of day, Friday, January 17.


8:00-8:30 a.m.
