Breakfast with Bateman MacKay: ASPE Changes and Financial Statements

We are pleased to present to our Banking Partners a special presentation where we will discuss updates to the Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE) which change how retractable or mandatorily redeemable shares (ROMRS) are classified and how these changes impact a business. These changes, which take effect for all annual financial statements relating to fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2021, provide new conditions that must be met in order for ROMRS to be classified as equity, and have a significant impact on annual financial statement presentation.

In this session, Partners Vinay Khosla and Alex Doma, and Senior Accountant Vikram Sidhu, will review these changes and what it means for users of financial documents and CPA Firms.

Business Bankers and anyone with corporate clients should attend. The complimentary hour-long virtual session includes a 45-minute presentation and time for Q&A.

Contact Chris Pickard at or (905) 632-2968 to register manually.
