Why the Coming Changes to US GAAP Accounting Standards Impact the Financial Landscape for Real Estate, Leasing and Construction Professionals and their Legal Counsel

After years of discussion, changes to the US GAAP financial accounting and income disclosure standards go into effect at the end of 2015, which will directly affect the entire commercial real estate, leasing and construction industries. Not since the 1970’s has there been such an effort to alter how leases are recorded and reported, as well as how construction revenue will be recognized and reported. 

This complimentary webinar will provide a keen and practical understanding of these coming changes and the benefits and challenges that affected real estate and construction entities will face under the new paradigm, as well as the legal pitfalls the changes will bring. 

Program topics for this complimentary webinar will include: 
  • An up-to-date look at the total expected changes in GAAP and financial reporting for the commercial real estate, leasing and construction industries and what to expect in the future 
  • What you can do to prepare for these new standards
  • How these standards will affect not only your disclosure and revenue recognition requirements, but how they will have far-reaching impact to every aspect of your company
  • The legal ramifications of non-compliance
  • How the capital markets may be impacted by these new standards
