MIS 19



CPAs Making the Difference

At the Management Information & Business Show we’re bringing you sources of inspiration. Tap into what drives you as a person and in the profession, and what makes the difference at this year’s event as we examine 29 trending topics changing our profession. Start the idea-flow with these overarching themes:

Final Section 199A Deduction Regulations (Sessions FF-GG):

Dispel confusion around the new regulations, created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, have your questions answered by an expert panel, and then focus on the different considerations and planning that go into a change of entity deliberation.

Smart Contracts for Beginners (Session NN):

Explore a real-life smart contract application and ensure that you’re not missing out on this blockchain technology that can transform how you do business.

Wage & Hour Compliance (Session CC):

After Michigan’s minimum wage increased to $9.45, staging increases through 2030, grab a front row seat to updates including how to comply with the state’s Paid Medical Leave Act of 2018. 

AI’s Answer to Audits (Session A):

Enhance your team’s audit process and execute more effective engagements by receiving new and rapid insights into how financial transactions are performing across all your data vs. traditional sampling methods. 

A (High) Risk Assessment (Session I):

More than one in 10 firms are not properly assessing risk or linking assessments to audit procedures according to an AICPA Peer Review Program study. How does this affect the successful audit?

Michigan Specific Ethics (Session N):

Ignorance isn’t bliss. Explore case studies in Michigan’s Accountancy law and Administrative Rule; from obtaining a firm license and what qualifies as CPE to actions the Bureau of Professional Licensing takes against the non-compliant.
