Why should you attend?

With the elimination of the option for proportionate consolidation, joint ventures are recorded under the equity method. This increases its use and multiplies the situations to be treated. Meanwhile, the obligations and options of this method are sometimes not well known.
This training allows to perform the necessary review and optimize compliance.
