Gear Up CPE Conference in Las Vegas JACKPOT

May 19 - 24, 2014 | 48 Hours of CPE
Las Vegas, NV | Las Vegas Flamingo Hotel

Hear from top-notch speakers, network with your peers and earn up to 48 CPE credits while enjoying Las Vegas—one of the most exciting and entertaining playgrounds in the world. It has all the amenities only a resort destination can offer: luxurious casino hotels, fine dining, and wonderful live entertainment. Las Vegas continuously reinvents itself, so even if you have been here before, you'll never run out of fun things to do!


Accounting (Two-Day)
Statement on Standards for Accounting and Review Services No. 19, effective in December 2010, replaced and/or revised almost every one of its predecessors — resulting in the most significant change in financial statement presentation since 1978. Even greater changes are on the way! The 2014 Gear Up Accounting course will cover the three versions of compilation and review financial statement reporting and compliance issues for various periods.

Fraud Detection
This fast-paced course is a forum for the discussion and implementation of techniques for the detection of fraud, the control of fraud, and the implementation of fraud prevention tools for the Main Street client. The subject matter provides practical guidance to help the “Mom & Pop” client and the mid-sized client prevent the misclassification of financial statement transactions and/or the misappropriation of assets by employees—and, perhaps, by management itself. Learn to what extent the accountant is held responsible for failure to assist the client in the prevention and detection of fraud.

Technology 3.0: The Next Step in Making your Practice Technologically Savvy
Where does a practitioner go to understand the complexities of dealing with technology in the practice? We will study the real world issues of dealing with the adaption of technology to solve practice issues.
• Is it time to take my practice into the cloud or is it just another thunderstorm?
• The mobility of data access and the handheld computer: smart phones, tablets, and notebooks
• Advances in the world of manipulating documents and work papers in the modern accounting and tax practice
• Work smarter, not harder! Great utility software that can make life easier in the office
• Security, remote access, and backing up data: How to properly set up and maintain your systems
• Floware: Managing daily office activities from your computer with little or no paper
• Operating systems Windows 7 and 8, Mac, Linux: How to keep up with all the changes

Health Care Reform
This eight-hour course provides comprehensive coverage of the Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare. We will examine what this new law means to you and your clients. You will be provided with information that will enable you to proactively serve your clients and attract new business.

IRAs, Pensions & Other Retirement Resources
This course addresses the many issues your clients face when considering their future, especially as they approach retirement years: how to draw retirement benefits, applying for Social Security and Medicare, planning for incapacity, longterm care, reverse mortgages, and cash flow planning and investments. Help your clients plan for their golden years and make difficult decisions.

Practice Development and Management
Make less...have fun doing it! We’ll teach you the 10 secrets to a successful tax and accounting practice. Learn how to develop relationships with clients and your team so that you can build a firm that has value whether you decide to work or sell it.

Estates and Trusts, One Day
This course will help you get started incorporating estate work into your practice or serve as a refresher for those already doing estate work. It is estimated that as much as ten trillion dollars of wealth will pass to beneficiaries over the next decade. This course will help you understand the essentials of the federal estate tax, including how to advise your clients on such matters as portability and funding of sub-trusts. There is something for everyone from the novice to the seasoned practitioner.
OPTIONAL SESSIONS AVAILABLE (not included with the Jackpot package):

Ethics for the Tax Professional

The Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) has been very busy, ensuring that Circular 230 Practitioners follow rules that prescribe and proscribe our behavior. We will discuss what we can—and must—do to assist our clients while maintaining ethical integrity and complying with Circular 230 rules. CTEC approved and IRS approved for EA s and RTRP s.
