Gain a better understanding of FASB's new CECL standards and the changes it brings to credit loss accounting.

Financial assets recognized at amortized cost or as available-for-sale debt securities and unrecognized lending commitments are subject to assessment for credit impairment losses under US GAAP.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which amends current US GAAP requirements for recognition and measurement of credit losses on investments in debt instruments and off-balance sheet credit exposures by replacing the incurred loss methodology with an expected loss methodology.

These changes will significantly impact financial services and other companies with loans, other receivables, available-for-sale debt securities, and off-balance sheet lending exposures. This topic will help those responsible for implementing accounting policies and processes for identification and measurement of credit losses on financial instruments understand the new requirements of ASU 2016-13, including the scope, recognition and measurement, and disclosure provisions of this ASU.

The information also explains some of the more challenging implementation and interpretative issues that have been addressed or that are currently being discussed in practice. You will be able to identify the key impacts of this new ASU and some of the more challenging implementation issues, which is critical to the eventual implementation of the new guidance.
