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

Published on: 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.
