In November 2018, the AICPA’s Financial Reporting Executive Committee (FinREC) issued an early working draft of Inventory Valuation guidance, which is part of a broader forthcoming release of the AICPA’s Business Combinations Accounting and Valuation Guide. Feedback was sought on this working draft to solicit comments from valuation specialists, preparers, auditors, financial statement users and other interested parties to further inform the development of this guidance. Due to requests for additional time from respondents, informal comments on this working draft will be accepted until May 1, 2019. Comments should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you, your staff or colleagues exhibit outstanding work in the forensic accounting or business valuation fields? We are seeking nominations of dedicated and passionate leaders, age 40 and under who hold the ABV® credential and/or CFF® credential, for the AICPA Standing Ovation recognition. The nomination process is simple and closes on July 31.

Statement on Standards for Forensic Services (SSFS1) is being finalized for publication following the exposure period which concluded at the end of February. The effective date has been moved to January 1, 2020 to allow sufficient time for final publication and adoption.
As noted within the body of the Statement, early adoption is permitted. The Statement is expected to be published by June 1, 2019. A special thank you to everyone who submitted comments on the exposure draft.
