CECL Modifications of Typical ALLL Disclosures

With CECL comes change in the accounting for the allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL) from an incurred loss model to an allowance for credit losses (ACL) using the current expected credit loss model. Because financial institutions will account for the loss allowance in a different way, and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) modified the disclosure requirements, the typical ALLL disclosures in the financial report will need to be modified to cover CECL. This whitepaper illustrates how disclosures will change and gives sample wording and tables.
