FASB Seeks Comments on Three Proposals for Private Companies

By: Private: Carl Kampel

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued three Private Company Council (PCC) proposals to allow private companies to apply alternatives under US GAAP when accounting for intangible assets in a business combination, goodwill and certain hedges involving interest rate swaps.  The proposals are intended to simplify the accounting for private companies while still providing users of their financial statements with the information they need.
