Current Expected Credit Loss Standard

The Current Expected Credit Loss standard (Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13) or intimately known as CECL, has been a hot topic in the banking industry since the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s first CECL exposure draft in 2012. The CECL standard was issued in June 2016 and in response to the impending changes, Baker Newman Noyes (BNN) has created a CECL Task Force to address the challenges and questions surrounding the new standard, particularly as it relates to loans and the allowance for loan losses. Our team offers a suite of services and tools to guide clients through the CECL accounting change. In addition, we have created an easy-to-use CECL Toolkit to help banks prepare for the transition.
