Impairment is an accounting concept and applies to goodwill, long-lived assets, and indefinite-lived assets. Impairment arises when the fair value of an asset is determined to be less than it’s carrying amount. Given the recent year-end capital market volatility, annual impairment testing was at the forefront for many reporting entities. When reporting entities disclose impairment, it is an indication that it overpaid for a past acquisition or the cost of an asset is less than its market value.

Learning Objectives:

  • How does goodwill originate? How do intangible assets get booked on the balance sheet? Future impairment risk versus EPS impact balance. Quick primer on acquisition accounting.
  • Introduction to Impairment Testing: What is the order and process, and how does it differ based on indefinite-lived versus long-lived assets versus goodwill?
  • Updates to Codification: Accounting Alternative and Step II Elimination.
