In this CPE-eligible, half-day conference, our Aronson government contracting experts discussed the current hot-topic issues affecting government contractors. What steps has your company taken to prepare for the new revenue recognition standard? Are you up-to-date on the latest tax updates? Are you looking for some best practices on budgeting and managing cost type contracts? If you have recently converted to a new accounting software, what does that mean in terms of having an adequate accounting system?

Our annual fall conference provided insightful analysis and commentary that prepared attendees for the upcoming year. In government contracting, the stakes are high. Start Fiscal Year 2019 off strong and don’t miss out on your chance to attend the premier conference event of the year!

At the end of the day, attendees received practical advice and expert insights on today’s crucial topics, including:

  • ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers
  • Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
  • Managing cost type contracts
  • Adequate accounting systems
