On March 15, 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-07
Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323): Simplifying the Transition to the Equity Method of Accounting. The ASU seeks to reduce the cost and complexity of Topic 323.
Currently, when an entity qualifies to use the equity method in response to a change in its ownership interest or degree of influence in an investment, US GAAP requires that the equity method be adopted retroactively. The amendments to Topic 323 allow an entity to apply the equity method prospectively as at the date of the increase in the entity’s ownership interest or degree of influence in an investment.
The amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods therein, for all entities. Earlier application is permitted.
