For many businesses, preparing financial statements using an Other Comprehensive Basis of Accounting (OCBOA, or the new audit terminology "Special Purpose Framework") may provide an alternative to the complexity of U.S. GAAP. This course will provide you with an overview and hands-on application for preparing and reporting on OCBOA financial statements. You will learn the unique measurement and disclosure requirements of various OCBOA options using example financial statements and illustrative disclosures. The course will also guide you through OCBOA engagements, highlighting common practice issues. You will also be introduced to the AICPA’s new OCBOA for small and medium-sized entities - FRF for SMEs.


Participants will be able to review the limited authoritative and non-authoritative literature covering other comprehensive bases of accounting (special purpose frameworks); learn how to prepare and report on OCBOA financial statements using the cash, modified cash, and tax basis of accounting; be aware of OCBOA accounting and presentation issues; Review the disclosure requirements for OCBOA financial statements and understand OCBOA reporting requirements
