On the Radar — Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets

Published on: 07 Apr 2021

Determining whether a transfer of financial assets or servicing rights qualifies as a sale for financial reporting purposes can be time-consuming and complex. An entity must consider both the form and substance of the transfer. As part of such an analysis, the entity would evaluate relevant legal and accounting rules and interpretations and generally must consult legal experts. The outcome of this analysis could significantly affect the classification, measurement, and earnings impact of the transaction as well as the related financial statement ratios. This guidance has not significantly changed for more than a decade, and no changes are expected in the near term.
