April 27, 2011 FASB Board Meeting
Investment properties. The Board decided that an investment property entity, in accounting for a lease for which it is the lessee, would measure right-of-use assets relating to investment properties at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income. Right-of-use assets relating to noninvestment property assets would be carried at amortized cost, consistent with the Leases Exposure Draft.
The Board also decided that noninvestment property assets held by investment property entities would be accounted for under other applicable U.S. GAAP.
