This Roadmap combines the guidance in ASC 360-10 and ASC 205-20 on classifying long-lived assets as held for sale — as well as that on the presentation of disposals that both do and do not qualify for discontinued-operations reporting — with Deloitte’s interpretations and examples in a comprehensive, reader-friendly format.
Note that this Roadmap represents a replacement of the 2017 publication A Roadmap to Reporting Discontinued Operations and has been expanded to address the disposal of long-lived assets.
This Roadmap replaces the Deloitte Q&As that were contained in ASC 360. To find the text in the Roadmap that corresponds to a former Q&A, select the “Discontinued Operations” tab at the bottom of the Q&A to Roadmap Quick Reference Guide and search for the Q&A’s number or title.
