Contract Review Tips for Accountants

Accountants are regularly called upon to review contracts. We are expected to provide a value-added review, considering wording, financial angles, risk, income and commodity tax and more. Although we are not lawyers, we can add a lot of value to the contract review process and this can help accountants look better at work. This course is taught by a veteran CFO, with vast contracting experience of all types. The course includes:

• Practice reviewing common contracts
• Asking “what if” questions
• Editing tips, the dangers of track-changes
• Dealing with what is “not there” that should be there
• Legal entity issues
• Strategic impacts
• Risk and insurance
• Cash and banking impacts
• Review checklists
• Useful tips on dealing with independent contractors

This course is a 1 hour topical extract from the course Practical Tips for Controllers & CFOs - The Case Course

This session was created and is presented by a veteran CFO Stephen Priddle who has created courses that nearly 28,000 accountants have attended and are known for practicality, examples, and humour, who is prolific writer of published cases.  

About 90% of the course content applies outside Canada, so it is of interest to accountants from anywhere in the world.
