Loan Modifications: Welcome to Atypical Accounting


Loan modifications are occurring at a record pace. Do I just dust off the financial reporting from the Great Recession? What is different and what is the same? In addition to covering the accounting, including the CARES Act and the Interagency Statement (as revised), we will also provide observations on how financial institutions are accounting for the different types of modifications, disclosures and internal control considerations.

Join FMS and Crowe LLP for an extended webinar taking a deep dive and a look at practices today.
