Overview

In this virtual Workshop for SEC reporting professionals, using the SEC’s guidance discussed in our SEC 101 Reporting Essentials for Financial Professionals Workshop or the SEC 101 Reporting Essentials for Lawyers Workshop, you will build the knowledge and skills needed to draft and review the Form 10-K annual report.  Discussion will include requirements from Regulation S-K for non-financial statement disclosures and the financial statement requirements of Regulation S-X as well as requirements from the Staff Accounting Bulletins, Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations and other sources.  Discussion will also include frequent SEC comment areas for Form 10-K.  This is an interactive Workshop (via Zoom) and open discussion is encouraged to enhance and deepen the learning process. 

The Workshop includes online access to PLI’s SEC Reporting Handbook.
