LARS: Live Audience, Remote Speaker
While SSARS 21 has been around for nearly a decade, preparation, compilation and review engagements continue to be a hot topic for peer review. This course will review the performance requirements for each engagement type with practical considerations. This interactive class will help attendees focus on what they need to know to be successful. The course will also address financial reporting issues impacting SSARS engagements including revenue recognition. The course closes with a look at nonattest service rules and their impact on SSARS engagements.
