Numerous FASB Standards have been issued requiring certain items to be measured and reported at “fair value” on the Balance Sheet. Prior to the release of ASC 820 Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (formerly known as SFAS 157), the concept of “fair value” had never been formally defined in U.S. accounting literature. Since its issuance in September 2006, ASC 820 has become one the most controversial accounting standards ever released.

This course provides a conceptual review of fair value accounting, as outlined in ASC 820 and other U.S. accounting standards. This course will also provide an overview of the authoritative guidance for auditing fair value measurements and disclosures, SAS No. 101.
