Hear PwC partners discuss fair value considerations
Determine fair value under US GAAP (ASC 820) and IFRS 13
Fair value continues to be an important measurement basis in financial reporting. It provides information about what an entity might realize if it sold an asset or might pay to transfer a liability. In recent years, the use of fair value as a measurement basis for financial reporting has been expanded, even as the debate over its usefulness to stakeholders continues. Determining fair value often requires a variety of assumptions and significant judgment. Thus, investors desire timely and transparent information about how fair value is measured, its impact on current financial statements, and its potential to impact future periods.
