ALBANY, New York, January 8, 2018 – BST & Co. CPAs, LLP, one of the Capital Region’s leading financial and management consulting firms, invites bankers and chief financial officers to learn how new financial accounting standards will likely change the way leases and debt are reported on the balance sheet. The seminar titled “Putting Theory into Practice” will take place on Thursday, February 1 from 8 to 10 a.m.

Bankers, commercial lenders, relationship managers, underwriters, credit risk managers, chief financial officers and controllers are encouraged to attend.
“With the timeline for implementation of these new accounting standards fast approaching, it is critical that bankers, chief financial officers and finance professionals understand the impact these new accounting standards could have on the balance sheet, and particularly how they may put liquidity ratios at risk,” said BST & Co. Managing Partner Ron Guzior. “We are pleased to present a panel of finance experts to discuss the resources available to assess the impact on loan covenants and how to simplify the implementation process.”
The panel of presenters includes:
- Michael Cheng, CPA, Private Company Council Coordinator, FASB
