Experience Level:Basic

Course ID:MS-114.22-SA
Published Date:April 2022*
COURSE DESCRIPTION

The accounts payable function is changing at a dizzying pace. What worked yesterday may not work today. Given the current economy, mounting regulatory pressures, and the increased visibility and importance of the accounts payable function,
best practices are something with which every professional needs to be conversant. Unfortunately, keeping up to speed these days can be like herding cats. While some best practices remain steadfast, others simply no longer work
and are being replaced by new practices just now appearing.

The talk will include a discussion of the newest best practice every organization should implement to ensure crooks don't get their hands on money or sensitive information. This is one session you might want to invite your colleagues
in accounting, auditing, and payroll to so they implement appropriate best practices and are not bamboozled by some of the newest frauds.

The truth is that companies ignore accounts payable best practices at their peril and the impact is felt on your bottom line. It's that simple—yet some organizations continue to turn a blind eye to the leakage that occurs due to the
poor or inefficient processes in their AP operations. Don't be one of them!

Topics include:
  • Why best practices matter
  • Invoice handling
  • Payment processes
  • Vendors and vendor file issues
  • Regulatory issues affecting the payment process
  • Travel and Entertainment
  • Fraud (both internal and external)
Learning Objectives:

After reading the course material, you will be able to:

  • Improve your invoice processing;
  • Implement effective payment technologies;
  • Comply with regulatory issues affecting the payment process;
  • Avoid costly mistakes due to spoofed emails;
  • Create effective expense reporting policies;

      Published Date:© June 2021
      COURSE DESCRIPTION

      AP Now statistics reveal that 85% of all companies had their accounts payable staff working remotely during the coronavirus crisis. For most, the transition from office to remote usually took place over a few short days and was anything
      but pretty or smooth. With the possibility of returning to the office at some point shortly, organizations need to start planning for that event. Hopefully, we’ve all learned something from going through this episode. The return
      to a new normal will require additional efforts around the accounts payable function.

      Organizations will need to review what happened while working remotely and plan for the future. The likelihood of this happening again is, unfortunately, high. The next time vendors are not so likely to be understanding about late
      payments and crooks will be even better situated to take advantage. Every organization needs to prepare.

      This session identifies 20 different steps every organization should take concerning its accounts payable function. It’s not hard, you just have to do it.

      Learning Objectives:

      After reading the course material, you will be able to:

      • Identify potential weaknesses that may have facilitated fraud or led to duplicate payments.
      • Pinpoint any responsibilities that may have fallen through the cracks during the crisis.
      • Create new processes for the future so the next time the transition will not be so harsh.
      • Evaluate interim policies that may need to be implemented as the country goes through the reopening process.
      • Start the transition with motivated employees.

      COURSE DESCRIPTION

      Many organizations take their accounts payable function (along with most others) for granted until suddenly, they can’t get an invoice to a critical vendor paid. Or, as many are finding out the hard way, their accounts payable team
      can’t get into the office to pick up all the paper invoices that need to be processed. This has happened for a few days in the past, mainly due to weather-related incidents. But they pass fairly quickly and it’s easy to play catch
      up. This time is different and it has highlighted the areas where the current process is not sufficient.

      This brand-new session was created by AP Now’s founder, Mary Schaeffer, and is based on the real-life experiences of many of her readers, who are accounting and accounts payable professionals as well as interviews with experts. They
      shared practices that are working, those that are not, and lessons learned.

      Learning Objectives:

      After reading the course material, you will be able to:

      • Identify areas where your current accounts payable function might need adjustment to deal with a crisis, like a coronavirus.
      • Develop practices that will help handle the masses of paper invoices that many are still receiving.
      • Manage staff and a management team working remotely.
      • Convert many of your vendors to receiving electronic payments instead of paper checks.
      • Create processes for those who must go into the office.
      • Keep up the morale of staff not used to working remotely.
      • Plan for future crisis.

      Published Date:April 2022*
      COURSE DESCRIPTION

      Alas, technology not only helps legitimate businesses become more efficient; it also assists crooks looking to defraud your organization. Getting money out of your organization's bank account is now easier than ever. Just ask the growing
      number of fraudsters snatching cash from unsuspecting organizations across the country. Unfortunately, every company is at risk, and businesses do not have the same fraud protections as individuals. If you don't report the thefts
      within 48 hours, you will probably end up eating the losses—which can be substantial.

      Those who think they're protected because they don't make electronic payments or because they use positive pay are flat out wrong. What's worse, it's not just the big guys who are getting hit. The crooks are also targeting smaller
      mid-sized companies, municipalities, schools, and not-for-profits.

      Avoiding electronic payments (ACH)is not the answer. You are still at risk; this is the fastest-growing payment fraud. But you can protect your company if you take the right steps. Please join us for this 60-fast paced minute session
      with an industry expert, AP Now’s Mary S. Schaeffer. It contains expert advice about all the latest electronic payment frauds.

      Topics include:

      • How big a problem electronic fraud is
      • A description of how each of the electronic payment frauds can happen
      • A dialogue of best practices that will prevent each of these frauds
      • A discussion of some bank products that help stop electronic payment fraud
      • An overall discussion of practices every organization should use to protect against payment fraud

      Learning Objectives:

      After reading the course material, you will be able to:

      • Identify the types of ACH payments;
      • Differentiate between the many different types of ACH payment fraud, including the two fastest-growing types;
      • Navigate around the limited legal protections from your bank;
      • Instruct your bank to use certain products to protect your company; and
      • Implement best payment process practices that affect ACH payments to protect your organization.

      The Fraud Triangle – Donald Cressey (1953)

      Opportunity, Incentive or Pressure, and Rationalization or Attitude

      The discrepancy between pay for government employees versus the private sector occasionally rationalizes the misappropriation as compensation to make salary “equal”. A manager uncovered the fraud when his bookkeeper unexpectedly missed
      a few days of work and he opened a bank statement. While looking through canceled checks from the statement he was shocked, made a few phone calls, and ended his upbringing as a forensic accountant. What type of fraud is this?
      How does fraud like this occur? What actions could have been used to stop this fraud? How could this have been detected during an audit? These are just a few of the questions we are going to look at and answer.

      Topics include:
      • Personnel Fraud
      • Interim Reporting Fraud
      • Personal Use of Public Assets
      • Management Override
      • Misappropriation of Assets
      • Procurement Cards

        COURSE DESCRIPTION

        “An increase in the number of businesses, changing financial laws and regulations, and greater scrutiny of company finances will drive faster-than-average growth of accountants and auditors,” reports the Department of Labor (DOL).
        In addition, in response to recent accounting scandals, new Federal legislation restricts the non-auditing services that public accountants can provide to clients.

        If an accounting firm audits a client’s financial statements, that same firm cannot provide advice on human resources, technology, investment banking, or legal matters, although accountants may still advise on tax issues, such as establishing
        a tax shelter. This requires the client in most cases to hire two separate firms to handle their annual accounting and financial service’s needs.

        Topics include:
        • This course will review some of the causes and effects of the increasing demand for accountants.
        • We will then review some of the steps that you and your firm can take to retain quality accountants and avoid the risk of accountant turnover within your organizations.

        Learning Objectives:

        After reading the course material, you will be able to:

        • Recognize the causes of the increased demand for accounting and financial personnel
        • Identify with the effects of the increasing demand
        • List what you can do within your organization to improve your chances of retaining quality accountants

        event at their place of business will ever open their doors again.

        In addition, a study developed by the University of Minnesota found that the average company which was put out of business for as little as four and a half days experienced up to a 50% loss in its capacity to operate.

        Many companies believe that because they are small that they are at less risk and are unable to afford the protection that larger companies can afford. However, it is the smaller companies that are at the greatest risk and therefore
        should be even more inclined than the larger companies because they are more likely to have all their eggs in one basket. For example, the smaller company commonly has only one work location, a limited number of employees, all
        of their assets stored at one location, etc.

        Topics include:
        • This course will introduce you to the process of developing, communicating, and testing a disaster recovery plan to avoid this potential pitfall and ensure the continuation of critical business operations in the case of an unforeseeable
          event.
        • Throughout this course, the term “disaster” shall mean any unforeseeable event which has the potential ability to cause an interruption in the normal business operations of an organization. This would include natural disastrous
          events such as fire, flood, hurricane, earthquake, tornado, etc. in addition to electrical power failure, communication system malfunction, information system crashes, etc.
        • We will begin by taking a look at a mock scenario of a company that experiences a flood during the normal course of a day. This company does not have a disaster plan in place and as a result, experiences a huge loss both financially
          and emotionally.
        • You will then be introduced to some of the processes and procedures which this mock company and your company or clients can utilize to ensure the continuation of critical business operations in the event of an unforeseeable disaster
          in order to reduce your financial and emotional risk.
        • This course will then revisit the mock scenario under the assumption that the company did have a disaster plan implemented when the flooding took place and compare the resulting damages imposed by the event.
        • Finally, you will be provided with additional resources that you may choose to utilize when developing your own disaster plans and a glossary of some of the more common disaster recovery terms.

          COURSE DESCRIPTION

          Corporations must file an income tax return following the guidelines developed by the IRS. Since GAAP and tax regulations differ in a number of ways, so frequently do pretax financial income and taxable income. In consequence, the
          amount that a company reports as tax expense will differ from the amount of taxes payable to the IRS.

          This course covers the basic guidelines that companies must follow in reporting income taxes and the disclosure requirement associated with deferred taxes, reviewing some of the concepts and items discussed in ASC 740, Income Taxes.

                    COURSE DESCRIPTION

                    The Offer in Compromise program is available to taxpayers that have a tax debt so large that they could never pay it. In many cases, they “go off the grid”. They take jobs that pay in cash, work as subcontractors, and don’t have
                    a bank account. By not working “on the books” the IRS can’t garnish their paycheck or levy their self-employed income. If they have a regular job they leave and find another one as soon as the IRS garnishes their paycheck.

                    By not having a bank account the IRS can’t levy their bank accounts. In many instances, they also have no assets in their name that could have a Federal Tax Lien filed against it. Through this program, they can “come clean” and
                    settle their tax debts, reestablish their credit, and get the trauma out of their life.

                    Topics include:
                    • Effective Tax Administration
                    • Doubt as to Liability
                    • Doubt as to Collectability

                    Learning Objectives:

                    After reading the course material, you will be able to:

                    • Identify the three types of offers.
                    • Determine which offer best serves your client.
                    • Familiarize yourself with the different forms used in filing.

                            a taxpayer can utilize qualified third-party intermediaries (QI), and tenancy-in-common structures including Delaware Statutory Trusts (DST). We will also explore creative solutions to sticky situations a taxpayer may find itself
                            in obtaining replacement property. This course is ideal for CPAs, EAs, lawyers, real estate professionals, accountants, or other tax professionals.

                                    Complying with IRS Regs regarding expense reimbursements just got a whole lot harder. Organizations everywhere are eyeing the bottom line and insisting on rigid travel and entertainment policy compliance. The IRS is taking an equally
                                    harsh stance tightening the rules. Compliance must now be not only with the company policies but also with IRS rules. Otherwise, you could end up answering not only the CFO but also the IRS–and that can be truly ugly.

                                      This is not a class on what is an IRA. As a CPA, Enrolled Agent, Attorney, or tax preparer you already know what an IRA is. Most of you think of an IRA as an Individual Retirement Account, I want you to think of it as an Individual
                                      Retirement Arrangement. So what's the difference? You can have multiple IRA accounts in multiple locations, banks, and brokerage houses. You can have it set up as a traditional, non-deductible, or even as a Roth IRA all of which
                                      is completely acceptable. But when we look at contributions as an example it's not a contribution to a specific account it's the total contribution to the arrangement. So, why would I do all of these IRAs when I can set up a qualified
                                      plan that allows me greater contributions. Qualified plans include full-time employees and after the security act, the calculations for determining full-time employees have changed. Join us as we travel across the traps and pitfalls
                                      to success in determining which one is the best for your unique situation.

                                      Learning Objectives:

                                      After reading the course material, you will be able to:

                                      • State the difference between an IRA and a qualified Plan.
                                      • Identify how much I can put into an IRA

                                      Many practitioners would like to develop an estate planning practice. The problem that many of these individuals face when taking an estate planning CPE course is that they cannot find a course that explains the basics of the topic
                                      in a manner that can be applied to practice development and practical ideas. By the end of the course, the “playing field” will begin to be “leveled” between those individuals who practice in this area and those who desire to do
                                      so.

                                            Here we will focus on traps and pitfalls, the problems that a client faces as they decide how to do a total plan as they incorporate estate and asset protection issues. We can spend many hours talking about the various different traps
                                            and pitfalls, but today we are going to focus on six (6) specific traps and pitfalls that we find to be very common in the initial phases of estate planning and show you how that is done with a client.

                                                All CPAs and Tax Practitioners deal with very sensitive client data. Cybercriminals are highly sophisticated, well-funded, and technologically adept at hacking computers and stealing information. CPAs and tax practitioners are some
