This session will take the building block concepts learned in the ASC 740 Introduction Course and attach practical applications to the concepts. We use multiple examples and scenarios to explain the concepts.

NOTE – It is recommended that you view the course ASC 740 Introduction – Accounting for Taxes Based on Income prior to taking this course.

Even at a basic level, ASC 740 (previously FAS 109), Accounting for Income Taxes is a challenging pronouncement to master and apply in terms of preparing the corporate tax provision. ASC 740 addresses financial accounting and reporting for the effects of income taxes - federal, foreign, state and local - that result from an enterprise's activities during the current and preceding years. As a result of these efforts, companies are able to recognize current year taxes due or refundable and manage expected future tax consequences of deferred assets and liabilities.  

From terms and definitions to calculations and reporting, the financial accounting standard for calculating and reporting income tax provisions demands close attention. In part one of this series, we will examine some of the basic concepts to ensure practical application for accounting for income taxes based on income.  

All tax professionals that want a basic understanding of ASC 740/FAS 109 concepts and the tools to prepare basic tax provisions will benefit from this course. These concepts include  understanding entities impacted by ASC 740 and defining a “tax based on income”, examining discounting and reviewing concepts of changes in accounting estimates and errors along with temporary and permanent differences.
