CECL Effective Date Determined

Jeff Skaggs, Audit Principal
November 2015

Yesterday the FASB determined the effective date of CECL. While the final standard has not yet been published, FASB determined that CECL will be effective as follows:

  • SEC filers: fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018
  • Public Business Entities (other than SEC filers): fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019
  • All others: fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019

In addition, the FASB determined the effective date of two other significant accounting standard updates that are in process. The “Classification and Measurement” standard will become effective for public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 and for all other entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. The “Lease” standard will become effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 for public business entities and years beginning after December 15, 2019 for all others.

In an unusual move, the FASB decided to provide the effective date of these standards prior to their issuance because of the significance of their impact to affected entities.
