Welcome to Clark Schaefer Hackett’s 2022 podcast, Fiscal Footnotes, where we strive to provide useful insights and practical knowledge around current tax, audit, HR and other business performance topics that impact your organization and its ongoing success.

Our podcast hosts and featured guests are experienced professionals who bring a high level of industry and client understanding to our robust conversations. We focus on sharing actionable information that business leaders can apply to decision making or implementation of business processes and recent financial standards. Our experts will always begin with a high-level view of relevant topics, but then move quickly to hands-on details that address adoption and implementation issues.

You can enjoy our podcasts via audio, video or both and we encourage you to reach out to our subject matter experts for more information about the topics we’ve presented.


Countdown to ASC 842 Readiness

The new lease accounting standard, ASC 842, is one of the most overhauled compliance standards to come from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in years. The standard impacts organizations across multiple industries that have any type of leases and issue any type of financial statement under (GAAP). Most importantly, the new standard must be implemented by the end of 2022… only a few short months remain to be compliant.

Our lease accounting experts can help your business with all your ASC 842 needs such as accumulating required data, developing and implementing processes & controls and identifying tools to improve accuracy and efficiency. Our two-part podcast series, “Countdown to ASC 842 Readiness”, will assist your business in getting started with implementation, or help “mid” implementation, if you are running into stumbling blocks.
