Fair Value for Financial Reporting



In today's dynamic and volatile markets, whether buying or selling, what corporate officers need to know is the current worth of an asset. Although the FASB has now concluded that fair value is the most relevant measure for financial instruments, determining fair value for investors has become a complex and, at times, confusing task.

Fair Value for Financial Reporting is a nuts-and-bolts book dedicated to equipping corporate financial officers and auditors with the tools to understand fair value and the appraisal process and to become educated buyers of appraisal services. Author Alfred King, valuation authority, clearly shows his experience in this subject, filtering complicated insider concepts into easy-to-understand information on the valuation specialist's function, the many new FASB pronouncements involving fair value, and the accounting and auditing requirements for fair value reporting.

Not designed as a how-to book on performing appraisal, Fair Value for Financial Reporting instead familiarizes financial officers on the ins and outs of fair value financial disclosure, including:

  • Preparation of valuations in a manner consistent with GAAP and current SEC interpretations after the Sarbanes-Oxley Act
  • Selecting an appraiser
  • What corporate executives should expect from their appraisers and valuation specialists
  • How appraisers develop fair value and the assumptions they have to make
  • How corporate liabilities such as lawsuits and contingent payments are now valued
  • How to evaluate an appraisal report
  • Valuation of financial instruments

Well written, conversational in tone, and filled with valuable insights, Fair Value for Financial Reporting lifts the veil of confusion from the substantial and growing requirements for fair value disclosures.

Great course. Easy to follow. The test took just one hour and my results were available within minutes.

  • The CPE Discount Store offers a great selection of online CPE courses.   I was able to complete my course on my time frame which is a great way to take CPE.  Having the book as a reference for future work was also helpful.

We are required to take our Ethics courses every year and although these are important to remind us of an essential part of our work that if damaged, could destroy our career and possibly our organization. But these courses tend to become repetitive and mundane. I particularly liked this course for its case studies. One is about a female executive at Enron and her role prior to the Enron demise. The author makes you really think about how ethical is really ethical. If you take the course I think you’ll understand what I mean. Maintaining complete ethical behavior towards your organization, your clients, and the public is very difficult sometimes and I think you have to totally step back to see your situation most clearly in order to do what’s right.
This is a nice course which helped me get my required CPE.
Poorly written, many questions were nonsensical and the material was very old. This product was noted as a 2018 version but the quiz tested us on knowledge from the mid nineties. Very, very poor course and I would not recommend it to anyone.
