Intermediate Corporate Tax Provision - ASC 740

Accounting for income taxes under US GAAP (ASC 740) and other standards for domestic and multinational companies remains high on the risk profile for material misstatements and errors in financial reporting. This is especially true for companies within certain regulated industries including utilities, insurance, and others. Intermediate Corporate Tax Provision – ASC 740’s practical, instructor-led online curriculum  builds upon the foundational concepts covered in the Corporate Tax Provision Fundamentals program to help tax and finance department professionals expand their understanding of tax accounting components and reporting considerations, and calibrate the professional judgment needed to address the often complex income tax provision process with a mix of example computations and shared experiences.

What makes this training unique is the paced nature of the program (classes held every other week), live office hours with instructors on alternating weeks, and special guest lecturers who are expert practitioners that impart real-world scenarios and time-tested wisdom into the material. Online and instructor-led, access to program content is flexible and available through multiple devices, allowing working tax professionals to easily manage schedules and learn remotely. Step by step, the tax provision process is finally demystified.
