This course will provide tax professionals with a review of current best practices for establishing, documenting, and maintaining reserves for uncertain sales and use tax positions of multinational companies using the most current interpretations of financial reporting under U.S. U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards.

Description

Under the terms of Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 450 and International Accounting Standards (IAS) 37, the requirements have never been more intense for determining reserves for uncertain sales and use tax positions. Tax professionals must prepare for enforcement scrutiny with practical strategies and best practices for setting reserves.

Both ASC 450 and IAS 37 require companies to accrue for uncertain loss reserves, make disclosure of significant changes in estimates, and provide "early warning" disclosure for possible losses.

As the national economy continues to evolve, the pressure on companies to properly manage sales and use taxes globally must be balanced against the impact on the business' financials.

Listen as our panel of experienced sales tax advisers share their insights and current best practices for creating prudent reserves to account for uncertain sales or use tax positions.
