FASB Votes to Delay Effective Dates for 3 Major Standards

Earlier this week, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) approved its August 2019 proposal to grant private companies, not-for-profit organizations and certain small public companies various effective date delays on its credit losses (CECL), leases, and hedging standards.

The FASB also approved its proposal to delay effective dates of its long-duration insurance standard for all insurance companies that issue long-duration contracts, such as life insurance and annuities.

The FASB expects to issue two final Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs) containing these decisions in mid-November.

The chart below details how effective dates will change.
