Thomson Reuters’ Tax & Accounting business has added the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Codification of GAAP standards to its Checkpoint service.

Checkpoint provides cross-referencing between GAAP and FASB codes, and links between the FASB Codification and other Thomson Reuters products, including PPC accounting and auditing guidance, WG&L analysis, and RIA research. Users can search through the codification and guidance via key word, topic, title, section, and custom search templates.

Thomson Reuters is also offering continuing professional education courses to help practitioners become more prepared for the transition. A “FASB Codification & Free Checkpoint Training” webinar is scheduled for Aug. 14, Aug. 28, Sept. 17, Sept. 30 and Jan 22. A self-study course, “Decoding the FASB Codification,” will be available in August. An audio course, “Researching in 2010: Understanding the FASB Codification,” will be available Nov. 18 and on demand thereafter.
