Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) for nongovernmental entities are voluminous, complex, and constantly changing. PPC’s Guide to GAAP is an up-to-date, comprehensive, and easy-to-use resource for researching and applying GAAP. With its clear and concise guidance, examples, practice aids, and practical considerations, you’ll find this Guide to be a valuable, timesaving tool for researching and applying GAAP.

Organized by topics found in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) and with an easy-to-use topical index and cross-reference to the FASB ASC, this Guide makes it simple to find the answers you need quickly.

The Guide includes the following useful features:

  • 63 chapters addressing both general and specialized industry standards
  • Numerous practical examples and useful guidance
  • A comprehensive disclosure checklist summarizing the primary disclosures that should be included in financial statements of nonpublic, nongovernmental entities
  • Coverage of the FASB ASC, Accounting Standards Updates of the FASB ASC, and exposure drafts of proposed new accounting standards
