Accounting Compliance for Government Contractors

Navigating the Differences

1.5 Learning Credits

upcoming february 17, 2022

Available Live or On-Demand

There is accounting…and then there is Government contract accounting.

Cost-based government contractors are subject to a wide range of unique accounting regulations such as Cost Accounting Standards (“CAS”) and FAR contract cost principles. While CAS and FAR are based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), major differences abound. Without an adequate system in place, a contractor may be faced with enormous challenges — not the least of which is lost profits and lost opportunities. Join us for an informative webinar/seminar to learn some of the key differences, the requirements, and strategies to mitigate contract risk.

Webinar topics will describe some of the key contrasts between financial accounting and cost-based government contract accounting including:

Expense Recognition

Selling – General and Administrative Expenses

Selling – Independent Research and Development
