This critical and timely bank accounting webinar addresses important deferred tax asset and liability issues specifically covered in FASB Statement No. 109 (ASC 740.10) and the recently issued ASU 2018-03. It puts the focus on one-time entries such as large tax effects of repatriation dollars; and the accounting for holding gains or losses on available-for-sale securities included in other comprehensive income (OCI) and stranded in OCI when there is a tax rate change enacted – unless ASU 2018-03 is implemented.

This accounting webinar presentation is timely and should be welcomed by those faced with the need to understand accounting for income taxes. It is especially useful for those closing the books and preparing financial statements for their company’s year end. It will refresh attendees with the accounting for income tax rules and their importance going forward in future years based on the newly enacted 2018 Tax Reform Act implications.

Specific topics include:

  • The balance sheet approach when accounting for income taxes
  • The handling (from creation to ultimate disposition) of deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities
  • The need for a valuation account (a “contra” account) in certain circumstances to reduce deferred tax assets to net realizable value (NRV)
  • Implications for financial institutions and lenders from 2018 Tax Reform Act
  • Specific examples of both temporary and permanent differences

Learning objectives include:

  • The historical problems associated with accounting for income taxes.
  • How the balance sheet approach dramatically changed income tax accounting.
  • The fundamentals surrounding the accounting for income taxes.
  • Future activities and their impact on deferred tax assets and/or liabilities.
  • The different handling of temporary differences and permanent differences.
  • The creation of the balances in the deferred tax asset and deferred tax liability accounts
  • The need for a valuation account when it is more likely than not (MLTN) that the net deferred tax asset will not be realized in full.
  • Basic provisions of SFAS 109 (ASC 740-10)
