Description

Description:
This course is divided into three parts. Part I is designed to help you navigate the specialized accounting principles and practices for the media and entertainment (M&E) industry. It discusses all the important authoritative pronouncements on GAAP for broadcasters, cable television, films, and music. Relevant references to and excerpts from ASC 920, ASC 922, ASC 926, and ASC 928 are discussed throughout the course. It also provides specific examples to illustrate the application. Part II focuses on the ASC 606 revenue recognition requirements since it supersedes most industry-specific guidance. Entities across industries are required to follow the guidance of ASC 606. Part III highlights key aspects of the lease standard as leases are common in the M&E industry.
