FASB Proposes to Delay Effective Date for Certain Disclosures About Troubled Debt Restructurings

Published on: 01 Dec 2010

Today, the FASB decided to issue a proposed ASU that would defer the effective date for certain disclosures under ASU 2010-201 about troubled debt restructurings (TDRs) to conform with the proposed effective date in the Board’s recently proposed ASU on TDRs.2

If the proposal is finalized, the disclosure provisions related to TDRs required by ASU 2010-20 would be effective for interim and annual periods ending on or after June 15, 2011.

The Board plans to issue the proposed ASU in mid-December, with a 15-day comment period, and expects to issue a final standard in early January 2011.
