Credit loss standards, Chase Wright
    ASB has delayed the implementation date for non-public companies, but the amended standard, ASC Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326), provides an option to irrevocably elect the fair value option for certain financial assets previously measured at amortized cost basis. For those entities, the targeted transition relief will increase comparability of financial statement information by providing an option to align measurement methodologies for similar financial assets.  The presentation shares the burden and opportunity the amended standard creates for companies, along with the lessons learned from early change adoptees.

The Path Forward for Leasing – ASC 842, Kevin Swatt
    While FASB has decided to delay implementation of the new standard for many filers, e.g., non-public filers, the delay does not alleviate the immediate need for many companies to begin to analyze and assess the planned changes to their accounting for leases. Commentators consider the changes to ASC 842 substantial. The new rules for leases adopt a principles-based approach and replaces the prior lease guidance that requires organizations to recognize a right-of-use asset and lease liability for most leasing arrangements. This presentation is designed to share key provisions of the new standard and how to apply the standard to various lease scenarios, and the reporting and disclosure requirement implications to financial statements.
