This Roadmap is a comprehensive guide to navigating the frequently complex consolidation accounting models. The 2019 edition reflects amendments made by ASU 2018-17 related to the private-company alternative and the alignment of certain assessments performed in the consolidation analysis. While the amendments do not represent wholesale changes such as those made by ASU 2015-02, they may significantly affect private companies that wish to apply the private-company alternative as well as certain decision makers. Updates made to the Roadmap since the 2018 edition are summarized in Appendix H.
This Roadmap replaces the Deloitte Q&As that were contained in ASC 810. To find the text in the Roadmap that corresponds to a former Q&A, select the “Consolidation” tab at the bottom of the Q&A to Roadmap Quick Reference Guide and search for the Q&A’s number or title.
