    Past Events/Webcasts

    Webcast - XBRL for Practitioners: Understanding the Opportunity and Responsibility
    If you have a practice that serves clients that report to the SEC, these clients are likely required to submit their financial statements using the new format, XBRL. All SEC Filers, no matter how small, are required to provide their financial statements prepared according to US GAAP in the XBRL format. Although the SEC Rules do not require auditor involvement with these exhibits, many companies have reached out to their CPAs because the taxonomies used for XBRL financial statements are based on the accounting standards and knowledge of those standards as well as familiarity with the underlying financial information is essential. In addition, XBRL provides the opportunity to improve both the reporting process as well as the audit process when utilized to its full potential. The AICPA hosted a webcast with a panel of subject matter experts including practitioners from various firms who discuss their experiences with assisting their clients with this standard.
