About This Course

Lawyers tend to be persuasive, argumentative and polished. But when it comes to the rules of accounting and taxation, even the best arguments will fall short in the face of steadfast rules and principles.

This CLE course will explain the basic accounting principles every lawyer must know from the organizations that set the rules and standards to arranging a corporate capital structure. The course will explain stockholder equity, liabilities, long term investments, funds and assets, how to present an income statement and a statement of cash flows, reports on audited financial statements and services for review and compilations. The course will also offer a thorough overview of taxation for lawyers and define what is considered income, what can be deducted and assessing taxable profit.
