We submitted comments on the FASB’s proposed Accounting Standards Update, Government Assistance (Topic 832): Disclosures by Business Entities about Government Assistance. We do not support the proposed standard as currently drafted primarily because the scope of the proposed standard (1) is too broad, (2) depends on a potentially challenging assessment of whether a government has exercised discretion, and (3) could include arrangements subject to other recognition, measurement, and disclosure guidance. We are concerned this will create significant incremental costs for preparers and challenges for auditors that are not justified by the perceived incremental benefits to users.
