Compilation Engagements: Application of the New CSRS 4200
Distance Learning (DL) courses are sessions that have been recorded from live, in-person offerings and made available as on-demand videos online, along with any corresponding course materials. Note these are purely self-study products and there will be no access to instructors for questions and answers. Each title qualifies for verifiable CPD hours upon successful completion of a quiz at the end of the session. Unlimited quiz attempts are available until the passing grade of 70% or better is achieved. After this, you will no longer have access to the quiz.

NOTE: Course login details are normally sent to registrants within one week from date of registration.


Recorded: October 2021 

Because the video recordings are taken from live seminars, the information presented is up-to-date at the time of recording. While we make an effort to keep our inventory updated and seasonally remove outdated titles, changes in accounting, tax and other acts and legislations can happen at any time. It is up to the purchaser to take note of the recording date, and to determine for themselves whether the recorded video is still relevant to their needs. 

This seminar updates practitioners on the new standard for compilation engagements so that they will have a working knowledge of the standard for application in their practices.  The seminar will include discussion and application of the components of the standard from engagement acceptance to completion and reporting.  Time will be spent on major differences from the previous standard and scenarios will be provided to create example working papers and documents to use as examples in practice.  The new standard was released in Winter 2020 for application starting with 2021 year-ends.   Participants will leave with an understanding of the standard, some working examples and materials to use as a reference to apply in their practices and an implementation plan to get started with CSRS 4200.
