Unformatted text preview: f. The appropriate disclosures related to that adoption shall be made in accordance with Section 250-10-50. 105-10-70 Grandfathered Guidance General 70-1 Pending Content: Transition Date: September 15, 2009 Transition Guidance: 105-10-65-1 Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Statement No. 162, The Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, contained a description of the categories of the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) hierarchy that existed before the Codification. An entity that has followed, and continues to follow, an accounting treatment that was previously in category ( c ) or category ( d ) of that GAAP hierarchy as of March 15, 1992, need not change to an accounting treatment in a higher category (( b ) or ( c )) of that hierarchy if its effective date was before March 15, 1992. For example, a nongovernmental entity that followed a prevalent industry practice (category ( d )) as of March 15, 1992, does not have to change to an accounting treatment included in a standard in category ( b ) or category ( c ) (such as an accounting principle in a cleared American Institute of Certified Public Accountants [AICPA] Statement of Position or Accounting Standards Executive Committee Practice Bulletin) whose effective date is before March 15, 1992. For standards whose effective date is after March 15, 1992, and for entities initially applying an accounting principle after March 15, 1992 (except for Emerging Issues Task Force consensus positions issued before March 16, 1992, which become effective in the hierarchy for initial application of an accounting principle after March 15, 1993), an entity shall follow guidance in the Codification. 70-2 Pending Content: Transition Date: September 15, 2009 Transition Guidance: 105-10-65-1 Certain accounting standards have allowed for the continued application of superseded accounting standards for transactions that have an ongoing effect in an entity’s financial statements. That superseded guidance has not been included in the Codification, shall be considered grandfathered, and shall continue to remain authoritative for those transactions after the effective date of FASB Statement No. 168, The FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. While not comprehensive, the following are examples of such grandfathered items: a. Pooling of interests in a business combination (originally addressed by APB Opinion No. 16, Business Combinations ) described in paragraph B217 of FASB Statement No. 141, Business Combinations b. Pension transition assets or obligations described in paragraph 77 of FASB Statement No. 87, Employers’ Accounting for Pensions c. Employee stock ownership plan shares (originally addressed by AICPA Statement of Position 76- 3, Accounting Practices for Certain Employee Stock Ownership Plans ) purchased by, and held as of, December 31, 1992, as described in paragraphs 97 and 102 of AICPA Statement of Position 93-6, Employers’ Accounting for Employee Stock Ownership Plans 30...
