Are You a Going Concern?

The rules of US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) are no longer silent on management’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern and what management should disclose in their financial statements.

In August 2014 the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-15, titled Presentation of Financial Statements—Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, which provides guidance about management’s responsibilities in this regard.

Guidance has been issued to reduce diversity in timing and content of footnote disclosures. Management need to consider this guidance to produce US GAAP-compliant financial statements.

Preparers of financial statements need to be aware of the additional disclosure requirements introduced by ASU No. 2015-09, as well as consider the time impact and increased level of detail on reserving and claims data to be compiled in order to enable preparation of financial statements that comply with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP).
