The Gemini Companies (Gemini) today shares insights (via a recording) from a recent event they hosted in Boston featuring experienced accounting, tax, and audit professionals. The panel, “Current Developments in Audit,” was moderated by Joe Breslin, Audit Committee Chairman of Northern Lights Fund Trust IV, and featured perspectives from: Scott Mackey, Partner at RSM US LLP; John Braun, Partner at BBD, LLP; Jeff Haneline, Senior Manager at Cohen & Company; and Wendy Wang, Senior Vice President of Tax & Compliance for Gemini.
Panel participants covered a range of topics during the conversation, including:
- SEC disclosure updates and simplification
- ASU 2018-13 fair value measurement (updates related to both public and private funds)
- AICPA Investment Valuation Guide
- The impact of tax reform on year end distributions (what was passed and what was not)
