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). The 2019 edition includes several
new discussions, as well as expansions of previously expressed views, to reflect our
latest thinking and input from standard setters and regulators. In addition, the
terminology throughout the Roadmap has been updated to align with the amendments made by
ASU 2018-07 to certain terms and definitions in ASC 718 related to nonemployee
share-based payment accounting.
For a discussion of the guidance on share-based payment awards before
the adoption of ASUs 2016-09, 2017-09, and 2018-07, see Deloitte’s 2015 edition of this Roadmap.
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
