FASB has proposed a one-year delay of revenue recognition for private company franchisors. In addition, public and nonpublic nonprofits will receive a delay along with nonpublic entities. The delay is due to the operational issues associated with COVID-19.

Originally, nonprofits with conduit debt were scheduled to adopt leases with public business entities but have now been granted a one-year delay as many of these entities are hospitals and universities who are most impacted by COVID-19.
