FASB Holds March 24 Meeting
March 26, 2021
At its March 24, 2021, meeting, the FASB ratified the Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) consensus on Issue No. 19-C, “Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications of Freestanding Equity Classified Forwards and Options,” and directed its staff to draft a final Accounting Standards Update (ASU) for a vote by written ballot. The Board also decided to remove the project based on Issue No. 19-B, “Revenue Recognition: Contract Modifications of Licenses of Intellectual Property,” from its technical agenda and instead will consider it as part of the post-implementation review of ASC 606, Revenue From Contracts With Customers.
In addition, the Board discussed its project on consolidation of a not-for-profit entity by a for-profit sponsor and decided to remove this project from its technical agenda.
