At its meeting on 22 April, the US Financial Accounting Standards Board voted that stock options "are payment for goods and services and that those costs should be recognised".

FASB will consider the timing of recognition and measurement issues at future meetings. The IASB has also proposed to expense the cost of all share-based payments in Exposure Draft 2.
