Accounting estimates are often some of the most difficult and subjective amounts included in U.S. GAAP financial statements. These estimates are pervasive and are often sensitive to relatively small changes in assumptions or circumstances, which can have a significant impact on the recorded (or not recorded) estimate in the financial statements. In this course, we will review the relevant auditing guidance related to auditing estimates, including the estimate for credit losses under ASC 326. We will focus on the three most common ways auditors can approach their audit of accounting estimates: waiting for the contingency to resolve itself, auditing the client’s estimation process, and developing the auditor’s point or range of estimate. Then we will review what has changed since SAS 143 became effective for 2023 audits. 


Learning Objectives

• Recall key presentation and disclosure requirements of ASC 326 

• Recall key approaches to auditing accounting estimates 

• Identify key provisions under SAS 143 

• Identify common models used to estimate credit losses and other estimates under U.S. GAAP 


Major Topics

• Common accounting estimates 

• Accounting guidance related to loss and gain contingencies 

• Audit guidance related to auditing accounting estimates 

• Auditing expected credit losses under ASC 326 

• Overview of the requirements of SAS 143 

• Key changes to auditing estimates due to the issuance of ASC 326 


Designed For

Experienced auditors and auditors auditing CECL estimates under ASC 326 for the first time

This course provides a concise overview of how the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) thinks. The session reviews how the agency uses behavioral insights -- the study of how people reflect and behave -- to drive compliance, positively impact taxpayer engagement, and reduce taxpayer burden. While the IRS is governed by federal tax law, it's also shaped by social norms. As part of their mission to collect taxes and administer the Internal Revenue Code, the agency utilizes human psychology to achieve their goals. These activities include public identity (using the IRS logo, seal, and symbol), voluntary compliance (using public shaming and the "Wesley Snipes" effect), trust building (using a Taxpayer Bill of Rights), and error reductions (using alerts and reminders to nudge behaviors). The session reveals how to "get into the head" of the agency and better understand the key psychological factors (individual, environmental, social) that drive leading IRS operations and decisions. The course also spotlights the leading issues and pain-points that are currently "top of mind" for the agency and how practitioners can be more mindful in their interactions with the IRS to improve outcomes. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.

  • Behavioral insights (BI) Primer
  • How and why BI are used by the IRS
  • IRS and individual decision-making
  • IRS and environmental and design considerations
  • IRS and social norms
  • IRS "top of mind" issues
  • BI and Implementation of tax reform legislation
  • BI and private debt collection
  • BI and online taxpayer accounts
  • BI and taxpayer rights in "real" vs. "unreal" audits
  • BI and the tax-exempt approval process
  • BI and passport renewal and revocation
  • How to use BI to more mindfully interact with the IRS to improve outcomes
Who will benefit: Practitioners who want to better understand how behavioral insights impact IRS operations and how this cognitive concept can be used by accountants to improve their interactions with the agency.
