This Roadmap provides Deloitte’s insights into and interpretations of the guidance on share-based payment arrangements in ASC 718 (employee and nonemployee awards) and ASC 505-50 (nonemployee awards before the adoption of ASU 2018-07) as well as in other literature (e.g., ASC 260 and ASC 805).
In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-08, which clarifies the accounting for share-based payments issued as consideration payable to a customer under ASC 606. Under the ASU, entities apply the guidance in ASC 718 to measure and classify share-based payments issued to a customer that are not in exchange for a distinct good or service (i.e., share-based sales incentives). The guidance in the 2020 edition of the Roadmap has been updated to reflect ASU 2019-08. However, the discussion of share-based-payments issued as sales incentives to customers is primarily included in Chapter 14. Section 9.2.1 provides guidance for entities that have not adopted ASU 2019-08.
This Roadmap replaces the Deloitte Q&As that were contained in ASC 718. To find the text in the Roadmap that corresponds to a former Q&A, select the “Share-Based Payment Awards” tab at the bottom of the Q&A to Roadmap Quick Reference Guide and search for the Q&A’s number or title.
