(RIVERWOODS, ILL., January 3, 2000) – CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of business and finance law information, software and services is now offering interactive securities forms, FASB and GASB documents and the 2000 CCH U.S. Master GAAP Guide as parts of the comprehensive and authoritative Essential SEC Accounting Rules for Business electronic library.

Essential SEC Accounting Rules for Business is a one-stop resource offering guidance, full-text official documents and compliance tools for accountants, controllers, lawyers, consultants, libraries and government agencies with accounting functions. This mix-or-match collection of indispensable research materials helps practitioners tackle the SEC accounting requirements for registering, reporting on, buying and selling securities.

Elements of the collection include Accountant’s SEC Practice Manual and SEC Accounting Rules, available separately or in combination on CD-ROM or the Internet. Both publications include Interactive SEC Forms and Instructions. Available separately on CD-ROM only are FASB Materials, GASB Materials and the 2000 CCH U.S. Master GAAP Guide.

Practitioners can customize their subscriptions to meet their needs, ordering either the Practice Manual or Accounting Rules, or both, and adding the FASB, GASB or GAAP Guide publications as needed to round out coverage.

Accountant’s SEC Practice Manual

Produced in conjunction with BDO Seidman, LLP, the Accountant’s SEC Practice Manual offers practical guidance on the nitty-gritty details of disclosure requirements, financial data and audit procedures.

The Practice Manual summarizes securities statutes and regulations, such as Regulation S-X and S-K as they relate to accounting practices, and provides helpful summaries of accounting series releases and interpretations from SEC Staff Accounting Bulletins.

The Practice Manual also contains invaluable point-by-point checklists for both financial disclosures and for management discussion and analysis.

The Accountant’s SEC Practice Manual is updated every other month.

SEC Accounting Rules

SEC Accounting Rules contains full-text documents relating to SEC guidance and enforcement actions regarding accounting. Included in the publication are Staff Accounting Bulletins from the SEC’s Division of Corporate Finance and Office of the Chief Accountant, correspondence on the independence of accountants from the Office of the Chief Accountant and industry guides, which contain the latest information on the policies and practices of the SEC’s Division of Corporate Finance on the preparation and filing of registration statements.

Annotations of decisions and releases provide concise summaries so users can quickly determine whether a matter applies to their situations and if more in-depth research is needed.

SEC Accounting Rules is updated monthly.

Interactive SEC Forms and Instructions

Included with either the Accountant’s SEC Practice Manual or SEC Accounting Rules on CD or the Internet is an interactive set of SEC forms, form instructions and continuation sheets. Subscribers can complete forms, print them and store completed forms on their PCs.

The CD-ROM version of the forms has a "common data form" feature that allows users to store repetitively used company or project information, which can then be applied to any open form.

FASB, GASB Materials, GAAP Guide

Also on the CD-ROM, users will find full text of issues considered by FASB’s Emerging Issues Task Force and implementation guides in the form of questions and answers from FASB special reports and other implementation guidance. An index pulls together references to all the varied FASB materials by topic.
