Proposed guidance related to classifying debt as current or noncurrent
The FASB has issued a revised proposal on classifying debt as current or noncurrent at the balance-sheet date.
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) recently issued a proposed Accounting Standards Update (ASU), Debt (Topic 470): Simplifying the Classification of Debt in a Classified Balance Sheet (Current versus Noncurrent). This proposed ASU reflects revisions to the original proposed ASU issued on the topic in January 2017.
Proposed accounting guidance for the effects of reference rate reform
The FASB recently issued a proposal on the accounting for reference rate reform (e.g., the planned discontinuation of LIBOR).
If finalized, the proposed ASU would provide guidance on how entities should account for changes to certain contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions affected by reference rate reform, including the planned discontinuation of the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR). LIBOR is commonly referenced in loans, debt instruments, leases and interest rate derivatives.
