This course will help organizations understand the current accounting model for stock-based payments (Topic 718) to employees and non-employees. The objective is to provide concise coverage of the accounting for stock-based payments. While this session will be delivered from the perspective of accountants and financial reporting professionals, it will also provide valuable insights for those involved in the administration of stock-based payment awards.
