Practical CECL Transition – Amortized Cost Basis

The Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) accounting standard, ASU 2016-13 (Topic 326), outlines that the allowance for credit losses should be a valuation account deducted from the amortized cost basis of financial assets. Amortized cost basis includes, but is not limited to, adjustments for accrued interest, unamortized premium and discounts, and net deferred fees or costs. Entities’ valuation techniques should present the net amount expected to be collected on the financial asset.This document is intended to cover amortized cost basis application, specific guidance, and conceptual soundness under the context of ASU 2016-13 (Topic 326).
