Are You Clear on Applying & Auditing Fair Value?


Identification: GOV1832

This session covers the application of the accounting standard over fair value, and the audit procedures that can be used to audit fair value. This session will present both the NFP and government perspective (recognizing there are both FASB and GASB accounting principles related to fair value) and focus mostly on how to apply fair value concepts and how to audit items recorded and/or disclosed at fair value. For instance, we’re hoping to weave in NFP, higher education, and governmental examples, challenges, and good practices to try to reach all elements in our expected audience.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the applicable accounting standard over fair value.
  2. Differentiate accounting standards related to fair value accounting in either a FASB or GASB environment.
  3. Apply the appropriate audit procedures to audit fair value.

Form 990 - Exploring the Complexities of Executive Compensation Post TCJA


Identification: GOV1835

This session covers proper identification of the individuals who are required to be reported on Form 990 Part VII for both calendar year versus fiscal year organizations. Key topics are: (1) Evaluation of when additional disclosures are called for when officers are engaged through a management company will be addressed (for purposes of Part VI Governance, Schedule O, Part VII-B, and potentially, Schedule L); (2) Contrasting the reporting requirements for Schedule J and those for core form Part VII-A both for disclosing compensation overall and in favor of understanding how a consistent filing position can avoid confusing the consumer of the information provided on Form 990; and (3) Understanding how to analyze the potential triggering of new IRC section 4960’s excise tax on executive compensation based upon available guidance from Treasury (if issued) or in good faith otherwise. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Compare what relationship and compensation data is required upon disparate parts of the Form 990
  • Determine areas where taxpayers may want to over-disclose compensation information in order to avoid confusion
  • Analyze information and uncertainties as to the new 4960 excise tax on executive compensation (including where taxpayers may need to document a tax position or request a ruling).
