SEC Reporting & Compliance

This seminar is designed to provide participants with a practical sense of what is required to prepare Form 10-K annual reports, Form 10-Q quarterly reports, Form 8-K current reports, and the Schedule 14A proxy statement.

Course materials are continuously updated to give perspective on current issues on the SEC's agenda, such as Non-GAAP disclosures, the Disclosure Effectiveness Project, Dodd-Frank initiatives, the JOBS Act, trends in SEC comments and XBRL.

Small group exercises and practical examples demonstrate how the regulations are applied and reinforce participant understanding of key topics.

In addition to the workbook manual, participants will also receive an SEC Rules and Regulations Manual and gain insight into how to research information.
