ASC 820 (1) defines fair value, (2) sets out in a single Topic a framework for measuring fair value, and (3) requires disclosures about fair value measurements.
ASC 820 also explains how to measure fair value for financial reporting. It does not require fair value measurements in addition to those already required or permitted by other Topics and is not intended to establish valuation standards or affect valuation practices outside of financial reporting.
