Statements of Standards for Accounting and Review Services (SSARS) recently underwent a complete revision through the issuance of SSARS No. 21, Statements of Standards for Accounting and Review Services: Clarification and Recodification. The most monumental change is the creation of a brand new non-attest service entitled "Preparation of Financial Statements". This course will focus on clear and practical guidelines for successfully navigating the changed professional requirements of SSARS No. 21 compared to current practice.
