The proposed technical improvements for the 2020 U.S. GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy include:
- New elements to accommodate lease, revenue, and banking regulation disclosures
- Deprecations for guidance that has been superseded
- Modified standard and documentation labels for maturity schedule elements and banking regulations
- Modified references related to elements for long-duration insurance
As a result of the EDGAR Release 19.2, the 2017 Taxonomy no longer is supported and the 2017 deprecated elements will not appear in the 2020 Taxonomy as deprecated items or in deprecated relationships. One hundred seventy-six elements deprecated with the 2017 Taxonomy will be removed because they are no longer available for use.
