  • FASB meeting Image

May 30, 2019

At its May 29, 2019, meeting, the FASB discussed (1) segment reporting and (2) not-for-profit implementation.

Segment reporting

The Board is developing topics for a study on segment disclosures and discussed the following options:

  • Require that entities report segment information in a financial statement format — The Board decided to exclude this alternative because of the alternative’s complexity but directed its staff to research how to improve segment reconciliation requirements.
  • Require additional general disclosures in ASC 280 — The Board directed its staff to study the effect of including additional general segment disclosure requirements.

For more information, see the meeting minutes on the FASB’s Web site.

Not-for-profit implementation

The Board discussed a draft of a staff Q&A related to ASU 2018-08, Clarifying the Scope and Accounting Guidance for Contributions Received and Contributions Made, and directed its staff to post the final document to its Web site.
