OBJECTIVE:
Explore the CPA Handbook - Part II Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE) that are applicable to the construction industry. The seminar covers the disclosure requirements and other issues specific to construction contracts.

As the construction industry continues to become a larger part of the Canadian economy, a similar increase in the level of complexity of industry practices has been observed. This leaves practitioners with the challenge of applying the standard in this ever-changing landscape. The half-day course is designed to enable the practical application of the ASPE standard to construction entities. Emphasis will be placed on the application of revenue recognition and other accounting policies using specific scenarios and practical illustrative examples. 

For the purposes of this seminar, construction industry includes construction contractors with various activities. A construction contractor may engage in various activities as a general contractor or subcontractor and does not necessarily have the ownership of real estate, but is acting as a vendor to the builders, developers and landlords that have direct or indirect ownership of the real estate.
