Join Bennett Jones and external facilitator Dr. John Friedlan for the second in our four-part Financial Statements and Financial Reporting Series. Lawyers and in-house legal counsel frequently work with financial statement and other accounting information.

Our second seminar deals with the income statement and will cover:
- What is income?
- Accrual vs. cash accounting
- Revenue recognition and matching
- Capitalizing vs. expensing
- Different measures of performance

The seminar will have a practical focus. Examples from actual financial statements are used extensively to demonstrate the issues discussed.
