As we approach annual statement season, join us at Sovos Education for one of our refresher or short courses to get up to speed on preparation. Each of these classes are bite-sized at just one to two hours in length.
Starting the first week of December, we began our mini P&C annual statement preparation courses with reinsurance concepts. The series also includes courses covering premium accounting, as well as the accounting and reporting for loss and loss adjustment expenses, other expenses and investment accounting. These are meant to either introduce concepts and accounting for these topics and are based on our longer full P&C annual statement preparation class. If you’d ever considered taking the bigger class but were scared off by the 28-hour time commitment, these shorter, topic specific courses would be perfect for you.
Sovos Education Services refresher courses
Beginning in January and running through April, we also have a variety of refresher courses. For the P&C reinsurance accountants, we have our schedule F refresher course where we will do an overview of changes related to reinsurance, and then go through the schedule at a high level. The schedule F refresher course is one-and-a half-hours long and offered multiple times in the first quarter of the year.
If your company participates in pooling, we also have a one-and-a-half-hour course that will be offered multiple times in the first quarter. More applicable to all entity types, we will also have a cash flow statement overview course offered in January.
For anyone involved with tax disclosures and accounting, we will have a few offerings of our SSAP 101 class during the first quarter as well.
February and beyond
Also, for our P&C folks, starting in February, we will have a couple of offerings of our insurance expense exhibit course, which is meant to be a refresher and overview. Those courses will be two hours in length. Then starting in March, ahead of the deadline for combined annual statement filings, we will have a few offerings of our combined annual statement overview class, which is a short one-hour course.
The last course in our refresher series will cover deferred acquisition costs and the related premium deficiency reserve. This course will be offered a couple of times beginning in April and is one-and-a-half hours in length.
