John M. Fleming, CPA, M.B.A.
With Topic 842, Leases, now effective for non-public and public not-for-profit reporting entities for annual reporting periods beginning after Dec. 15, 2021, this session will provide participants with the significant differences from legacy Topic 840, Leases.

2B. Understanding the Newly Issued SSARs and SSAE Standards
Kenneth A. Heaslip, CPA, CGMA
This recently issued SSARs and SSAE standards make significant changes to review engagements and agreed-upon procedures engagements. Because SSAE 19 is now effective for agreed-upon procedures with reports dated on or after July 15, 2021, it is a good time to get any questions answered. SSARS 25 has an effective date of engagements performed in accordance with SSARs on financial statements for periods ending on or after Dec. 15, 2021, so participants may use this session to make final preparations for applying this standard.

2C. In-Depth Look at SASs 142 and 143
Rebecca M. Lee, CPA
The changing environment created by SAS 142, Audit Evidence, and SAS 143, Auditing Accounting Estimates and Related Disclosures has introduced new, complex issues. This session will look at the documentation, evidence and procedures necessary to apply the new standards. Guidance will be provided for the related disclosure of the use of estimates in financial reporting and focus on the uncertainty of using estimates and management’s bias.
