Oct 16, 2019

On October 16, 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) approved its August 2019 proposal to grant private companies, not-for-profit organizations, and certain small public companies various effective date delays on its credit losses (CECL), leases, and hedging standards.

At this meeting, the FASB discussed (1) the effective dates of its standards on credit losses, hedging, leases, and insurance for private companies, not-for-profit organizations, and small public companies and (2) multiple-layer hedging.

Effective-date considerations

The Board affirmed its decision to stagger effective dates for major standards and to amend the effective dates of its standards on credit losses, hedging, leases, and insurance to give implementation relief to certain types of entities. The Board directed its staff to draft a final Accounting Standards Update (ASU) for a vote by written ballot.

Hedging — last-of-layer method

The Board discussed multiple-layer and fair value hedge basis adjustment issues and directed its staff to draft a proposed ASU for external review.
