The FASB proposes to adopt an expected credit loss approach that would replace several methods now used in accounting for credit losses, including loans where impairment is now based on a probable incurred-loss model. The proposal would apply to loans and debt securities carried at amortized cost and fair value with changes reported in other comprehensive income. The proposal is intended to require more timely recog¬nition of credit losses.
Bankers are encouraged to review the FASB's ASU and submit comments to the FASB on those aspects of the proposal of interest to them. The FASB extended its comment deadline from April 30 to May 31, 2013. The ASU can be accessed at http://www.fasb.org/cs/ContentServer?c=Document_C&pagename=FASB%2FDocument_C%2FDocumentPage&cid=1176160587228.
The FASB has also provided an Electronic Feedback Form at https://www.fafsurveys.org/se.ashx?s=4CA36E9212DA4751.
