Equity Compensation – Modifications, Audits, Cloud – FREE Webinar

Posted by Lindy Antonelli

Equity Compensation A recent article from Kimberly Kovacs of Accounting Today identified how cloud or SaaS models can streamline the equity compensation audit process. Present-day equity compensation programs face the following challenges, no longer manageable with the use of spreadsheets:

  • Increasingly complicated expensing and reporting requirements
  • An expansion in award types and situations that require modification accounting
  • Increased concerns about backdating

To reduce risk and increase auditability, companies have moved to Software as a Service, or SaaS-based, equity compensation software systems.  You can read the full article here.
