FASB Issues New Standards for Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures

In conjunction with the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) on May 12 issued new standards for public and private companies on fair value (FV) measurement and disclosures. Most companies will see little change in how they measure fair value, but they may need to make more extensive disclosures about the processes and assumptions behind those measurements.

The new requirements — found in Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs — don’t extend the use of FV accounting but provide direction on how it should be applied when already required or permitted.
