Accounting Pronouncements Adopted


The FASB issued new guidance under ASC Topic 326, Financial Instruments Credit Losses. The guidance changes the allowance on accounts receivable from an incurred method to an expected method. The Company adopted ASC Topic 326 on January 1, 2023 which requires the Company to look at its history of write-offs to come up with an expected loss rate and apply that to its current accounts receivable balance. It had no material effect on the consolidated financial statements.


Accounting Pronouncements Pending


In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815 – 40), (“ASU 2020-06”). ASU 2020-06 simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity, including convertible instruments and contracts on an entity’s own equity. The ASU 2020-06 amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect this will have any impact on its consolidated financial statements.


In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-09, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures. This ASU requires public entities, on an annual basis, to provide disclosure of specific categories in the rate reconciliation, as well as disclosure of income taxes paid disaggregated by jurisdiction. ASU 2023-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this standard on its financial statements.
