P1: For each of the following, describe how a reporting entity would make the transition to
the pending content (prospectively, retrospectively, etc.) in the given paragraph.
a. Paragraph 205-10-45-1A
b. Paragraph 820-10-35-2B
c. Paragraph 350-20-35-8A (assume that upon application of the pending content,
the entity determines that it should record a goodwill impairment). Lesson 7: Working with Pending Content 76 LESSON Working with Archived Content 8 Lesson Scenario
As introduced in Lesson 3, Daria is the director of financial reporting for a commercial bank.
Because the bank is a publicly held corporation, its financial reporting is subject to FASB
guidance and SEC guidance, both of which appear in the Codification.

of that content. Using the System, she navigates to the appropriate archived content for
Sections 310-10-50 and 310-10-S50 to determine whether that content was applied correctly
to the financial statements her bank filed with the SEC. Learning Outcomes
In the scenario above, Daria used the System to review a past version of Codification content
that is no longer current. This lesson will help you learn to do what she did, specifically: Distinguish between the current version and archived versions of content in the
System Access archived content Comprehend archived content. ABOUT ARCHIVED CONTENT
