The Financing transactions guide is a roadmap to the accounting for the issuance, modification, and extinguishment of debt and equity instruments. 

This guide was partially updated in February 2021.

Our Financing transactions guide provides a summary of the guidance relevant to the accounting for debt and equity instruments and serves as a roadmap to help you evaluate the accounting requirements for a particular transaction. Specifically, the guide explains the accounting guidance and provides our interpretations and illustrative examples on a variety of topics, including:

  • Issuing debt, convertible debt, common stock, or preferred stock, among other financing transactions
  • Modifying or extinguishing debt or equity securities
  • Determining the accounting for guarantees and joint and several obligations
  • Inducing an investor to convert debt or securities
  • Buying back debt or equity securities
