Private Company Accounting: New Directions, New Challenges

The convergence process is beginning to wind down. Both FASB and the IASB have issued new revenue recognition standards and lease accounting changes will soon follow. These changes will impact both public and private companies. Whether or not IFRS becomes the basis for U.S. accounting standards, the convergence and private company accounting changes impact activities well beyond financial reporting.
