Provider of payroll outsourcing services invites accountants to attend online class on FIN 46(R), Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities.

As part of an ongoing monthly series, Perquest, a provider of web based payroll services, is offering accounting practitioners a free Certified Professional Education (CPE) web-based course to help them understand how FIN 46 (R) affects private companies. This one hour course will be delivered Tuesday, September 23, 2008 at 2pm Eastern time.

Ever since the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued FIN 46(R) in December 2003, accountants have struggled with the reporting of off-balance sheet entities. GAAP exception reports have increased significantly due to noncompliance with FIN 46(R). On July 18, 2008, the Private Company Financial Reporting Committee recommended that FASB alter the requirements of the recommendation for privately held companies, suggesting that the FASB allow stand-alone parent-only financial statements under GAAP for private companies. Perquest’s web-based course will examine this timely topic and answer common questions.

WHO: Robert Durak, senior technical adviser to the Private Company Financial Reporting Committee and principal author of the July 18 recommendation.

WHAT: A free Certified Professional Education (CPE) Web-based course hosted by Perquest.
