GASB has issued an exposure draft, “Accounting and Financial Reporting Issues Related to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) of 2020 and Coronavirus Diseases,” to address questions relating to the proper accounting for CARES Act funding, including PPP.
The Q&A addresses questions about whether this would be treated as an extraordinary or special item, as operating or non-operating revenue, and when does a forgivable loan become revenue.
Written comments are due June 25 and should be addressed to the Director of Research and Technical Activities, Project No. 3-40, and emailed to email@example.com.
