The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued final guidance that significantly changed how entities measure credit losses for most financial assets and certain other instruments that aren’t measured at fair value through net income. Through this new amendment outlined in Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) 326, the FASB answered the critics that the current accounting and reporting guidelines will not be able to recognize credit losses in time as compared to the previous delayed reporting. In order to execute this, the new standard replaces the current “incurred loss” approach with an “expected loss” approach model. The new standard simplifies the accounting model for purchased credit-impaired debt securities and loans.
This course provides an in-depth overview of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, issued by the FASB in June 2016. The new standard will apply to nearly all entities, not just those in the financial services industry, and will change how entities document and account for credit impairment on their respective financial instruments. This new standard is effective for public business entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods therein. As such, this means that calendar-year SEC filers will have to apply the new requirements starting in the first quarter of 2020.
