    FASB Consults on Amendments in Response to SEC Disclosure Update

    May 06, 2019

    FASB proposed an Accounting Standards Update (ASU) that improves disclosure requirements in terms of codification amendments in response to the Disclosure Update and Simplification Initiative of SEC. The proposed changes cover, among others, topics such as related party disclosures and derivatives and hedging. The comment period on this exposure draft ends on June 28, 2019.

    In the Release No. 33-10532, titled "Disclosure Update and Simplification" and issued on August 17, 2018, SEC referred certain of its disclosure requirements that overlap with, but require incremental information to, generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) to the FASB for potential incorporation into the Codification. The amendments in this proposed Accounting Standards Update are the result of the FASB consideration of those referred disclosures. The amendments in this proposed Accounting Standards Update would affect a variety of topics in the Codification. Certain proposed amendments represent clarifications to, or technical corrections of, the current requirements. A summary table identifying the Codification Subtopics and the nature of the proposed amendments is provided in the “Amendments to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification” section.

    The proposed amendments would apply to all entities within the scope of the affected topics, unless otherwise indicated. FASB is seeking input on whether the proposed amendments should apply to private companies and not-for-profit entities. However, certain disclosures included in the amendments in the proposed Accounting Standards Update would not be required for entities other than public business entities. The proposed amendments would align the requirements in the Codification with the SEC regulations and, therefore, would make the Codification easier to apply by eliminating those redundancies and providing clarifications. The amendments in the proposed Accounting Standards Update would be applied prospectively to financial statements issued after the effective date. The effective date will be determined after FASB considers stakeholder feedback on the proposed amendments.
