Here are the April 2020 topics

Disclosure Effectiveness: Who Tells Your Story? 
Field of Study: Accounting 
Public companies are quickly adapting their disclosures to provide better information as regulations and investor sentiments evolve. Traditionally, financial reporting professionals often interpreted "better" to mean "more"...more narrative and more tables, in many cases. That has led to narrative losing its nuance, turning into boilerplate or repetitive language, and tables failing to bring value to the reader. Ultimately, disclosure effectiveness has suffered. April Brady, a Senior Director of Product Marketing with Workiva explains why it is becoming increasingly important for companies to tell their own story through disclosure.
Embracing Emerging Technologies 
Field of Study: Management Services 
Accounting and finance leaders are bombarded with information about how technology can facilitate and transform their entire organization. And there is no time like now to put words into actions, plan for immediate changes and look ahead for future potential. Our video crew was on hand at a recent Financial Executive International conference where they videotaped a high level panel discussion on this topic. The panel featured three senior finance executives from major US companies. Thanks to them, you can join the conversation about the importance of embracing emerging technology in finance and accounting organizations and discover how you can empower your employees to incorporate technology into their roles.
Rising Healthcare Costs: Cause & Effect 
Field of Study: Business Management & Organization 
In recent years, healthcare costs have been increasing exponentially for employers, and the burden on the workforce has reached a point where health benefits are losing ground in the hiring and retention process. Even though the affordability of healthcare may have a direct correlation with one's salary, annual salary increases, if any, are not nearly enough to absorb the even faster growing healthcare costs. In addition to the rising costs, annual deductibles are often north of $1,500, and as a result, lower income workers and families opt out of insurance coverage. Matt Wolf, Director, Health Care Senior Analyst with RSM US LLP discusses some of the key factors driving those increases.
Federal Income Tax Withholding on Foreign Persons: Forms 1042 and 1042-S 
Field of Study: Taxes 
Forms 1042 and 1042-S are U.S. IRS tax forms related to payments to foreign persons, including non-resident aliens, foreign partnerships, foreign corporations, foreign estates, and foreign trusts. Last year the IRS announced a new campaign to target "Withholding and International Individual Compliance" regarding Forms 1042 and 1042-S. Those who make payments of certain U.S. source income to foreign persons must comply with withholding, deposit, and reporting requirements. Kelli Wooten, CPA, Tax Managing Director at KPMG shares with us the differences between the two forms and their reporting and filing requirements.
