FASB has issued a proposal to adjust the timing for when private entities and nonprofits would be required to identify triggering events for goodwill impairment.

We’re kicking off the year with our annual year in review. This week’s blog focuses on the standards issued in 2020 by the AICPA, FASB and GASB. We’ll give a quick executive summary of what was finalized in 2020 for each standard setter as we kick off a new year of standard setting.
Each quarter we review what issued as final standards during the quarter. While the Genuine Learning Blog focuses on what’s coming down the pike and tries to encourage participation in due process, we also know its important to be aware of what get’s finalized. The blog looks at the items issued by the AICPA, FASB and GASB that will be effective in the near future.
This week we review the standards issued and proposed in the second quarter of 2020 for GASB, FASB, and the AICPA. While it was a slower quarter, GASB did manage to finalize quite a few final standards while also issuing exposure drafts for the conceptual framework and a preliminary views document on revenue and expenses. FASB focused solely on COVID19. The AICPA addressed COVID19, as well, while also issuing the final standard in their reporting suite and four TQAs.
