Current Expected Credit Losses
In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Update 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (“Topic 326”), subsequently amended by various standard updates. This guidance replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information when determining credit loss estimates and requires financial assets to be measured net of expected credit losses at the time of initial recognition. This guidance is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019 using a modified retrospective adoption method. Early adoption is permitted.
We evaluated the guidance by reviewing our trade and other receivable balances and grouping them into asset pools based on similar risk characteristics. We then reviewed our asset pools for collectibility using a broad range of factors including historical collections data as well as qualitative analysis of both historical and prospective factors to develop an expected loss rate. We then applied the expected loss rate to the asset pools to determine the expected impact of our adoption of the standard. Based on our analysis, we do not expect to recognize a material impact upon adoption in the first quarter of 2020.
Income Taxes
In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Update 2019-12, Income Taxes ("Topic 740") as part of its Simplification Initiative. This guidance provides amendments to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740. The amendments also improve consistent application of and simplify GAAP for other areas of Topic 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. This guidance is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2020, and early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the full impact this guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements.
We reviewed all other recently issued accounting pronouncements and concluded they were either not applicable or not expected to have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
