Impairment tests

Volatile financial markets and shifting economic conditions can impact the value of a company’s assets across the balance sheet. As a result, companies are often challenged in making the best decisions for measuring and reporting impairment charges. Improper decisions can adversely impact earnings or prompt unwanted scrutiny from regulators.

Impairment testing involves more than “determining a number to book.” Consider the strategic areas of financial reporting that intersect with annual testing required for goodwill and other assets. A more informed approach can strengthen your company’s financial position and help avoid unnecessary risks or surprises.
