FASB Delays Leases & Revenue Recognition

FASB voted to delay both revenue recognition and leases for private entities at their May 20th meeting. The original proposal was for a delay for private company franchisors to receive a one year delay of revenue recognition. But the Board added all private entities that have not yet issued financials. In addition, both “public” and private nonprofits as well as all private entities receive an extra year (in addition to ASU 2019-10) for leases. ASU to be issued in June!

FASB Effective Date Delays for Certain Entities

FASB Effective Date Delays for Certain Entities

FASB has proposed a one year delay of revenue recognition for private company franchisors. In addition, public and nonpublic nonprofits will receive a delay along with nonpublic entities. The delay is due to the operational issues associated with COVID19. Originally, nonprofits with conduit debt were scheduled to adopt leases with public business entities but have now been granted a one year delay as many of these entities are hospitals and universities who are most impacted by COVID19.
