This Roadmap provides Deloitte’s insights into and interpretations of the accounting guidance on noncontrolling interests.
Although the accounting principles related to noncontrolling interests have been in place for many years, they can be difficult to apply. The relatively brief guidance on nonredeemable noncontrolling interests (ASC 810-10) has resulted in diversity in practice, while the guidance on redeemable noncontrolling interests (ASC 480-10-S99) is highly prescriptive and contains multiple policy elections. For these reasons, accounting for noncontrolling interests is a particularly challenging aspect of U.S. GAAP.
