Measurement of Fair Value for Certain Transactions of Not-for-Profit Entities, created by the Not-for-Profit Expert Panel of the AICPA, details the challenges of measuring fair value for not-for-profits.
Practitioners will learn how to better apply the provisions of FASB Accounting Standards Codification 820,Fair Value Measurement, including considerations for determining an appropriate valuation technique based on facts and circumstances and different valuation approaches and techniques. Additionally, the white paper provides insight on how to determine an appropriate discount rate when using present value techniques and need to know disclosure considerations.
To help practitioners understand the new white paper and the issues and guidance discussed within it, the AICPA's Governmental Audit Quality Center is hosting a 2-hour Continuing Professional Education Web event on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM ET.
