  • On the Radar — Impairments and disposals of long-lived assets and discontinued operations (October 2021)

    published 12 Oct 2021

    Long-lived assets within the scope of ASC 360-10 are accounted for and tested for impairment differently depending on the entity’s intent regarding the assets. Long-lived assets that the entity intends to hold and use in its operations, including long-lived assets that the entity intends to abandon, distribute to owners, or exchange in a nonmonetary transaction accounted for at carrying amount, are tested for impairment when a triggering event occurs by performing a two-step recoverability test. By contrast, long-lived assets that the entity intends to sell are tested for impairment upon classification as held for sale and in each subsequent reporting period by comparing their carrying amount with their fair value less costs to sell.

    An investor must consider the substance of a transaction as well as the form of an investee when determining the appropriate accounting for its ownership interest in the investee. If the investor does not control the investee and is not required to consolidate it, the investor must evaluate whether to use the equity method to account for its interest. This evaluation frequently requires the use of significant judgment.
