FASB Proposes Delays on Accounting Standard Changes

Posted 4:01 PM by
On July 17, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) voted to have its staff prepare an exposure draft to delay the effective dates for accounting standard changes on leases, credit losses, and hedging. The FASB received several requests to provide relief as smaller companies are dealing with the highly challenging implementation of the revenue recognition standard. The FASB has also requested that its staff prepare a second exposure draft to propose new effective dates for long-duration insurance contracts. Upon approval by the FASB, the exposure drafts are expected to be issued with 30-day comment periods. The FASB indicated a desire to prioritize the exposure draft for leases, credit losses, and hedging because of the quickly approaching effective dates for these standards.

The Code had been revised after the issuance of a prior FASB statement, which served as the basis for the definition of collections in the ASC.
