FASB has issued a proposal to adjust the timing for when private entities and nonprofits would be required to identify triggering events for goodwill impairment. After initially identified by the AICPA’s Technical Issues Committee (TIC), it was determined that the cost and complexity associated with an interim consideration for an annual reporting outweighed the benefit. Comments are due Jan. 20.
