Lease Accounting: The Nuts & Bolts of ASC 842

Matt Smith | YHB & Jacob Pendergraft | YHB

ASC 842, Leases, is the new lease accounting standard issued by the FASB. The new standards contains guidance on the accounting and financial reporting for the agreements meeting the standard’s definition of a lease. The updated standard applies to most lease and subleases, but some exceptions do exist. As the new effective date draws near, join us as we go over the high points you will need to know as your organization starts to plan for implementation.

How to Prepare Your Construction Company for Sale

Ryan Foley | FMI Capital Advisors, Inc.

2021 Tax Update: Changes on the Horizon?

Kevin Branner | YHB & Andy Boyles | YHB

In this presentation, we will cover the major changes to the tax laws within this past year, including successes and struggles with the PPP loans, and what to consider moving forward to ensure you are set up for success in the future. We will provide insights into what we know now and how you can prepare and proceed confidently with potential upcoming tax law changes.

Building Your House of Leadership – with a Focus on Vision!

J.R. Flatter | Flatter, Inc. 

In these times of hyper-competitive labor markets, differentiating yourself as an employer of choice is more important than ever.  One proven way to make that differentiation happen is through powerful leadership vision and the strong culture that results from that powerful leadership vision.  During this 90-minute interactive discussion, we will focus on identifying and achieving your long-term vision as a leader – moving beyond 20th Century “strategic planning” – to the 21st Century intersection of encouraging and assisting both personal and professional achievement – for self, family, and work team!
