CECL Model: Navigating Its Complex Labyrinth Requires Continuous Adaptation and Learning
Thursday, October 5th, 2023
Shasat’s CECL Workshop empowers professionals with a deep understanding of the CECL model, offering practical insights and real-world examples.
In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB
) introduced its Accounting Standards Update on Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (ASC 326), commonly referred to as the Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) model. This ground-breaking change revolutionized how banks estimate credit losses and carried significant implications for financial institutions and entities with financial assets and net investments in leases.
Despite the passage of several years, numerous organizations continue to grapple with the implementation of the CECL model and refining their approach to adhere to the new accounting standards outlined in this impairment framework. The impact on organizational processes and systems has proven to be substantial, necessitating technical expertise, meticulous planning, and strategic considerations for a successful transition.
In response to the ongoing need for clarity and guidance, Shasat, a distinguished leader in professional education, has introduced a two-day Impairment Workshop. This intensive course
is specifically designed to empower professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the CECL model, its proposed implementation, and the challenges encountered during the transition. The workshop will also draw valuable insights from past accounting changes, explore practical and strategic implications of Topic 326, and delve into the regulatory landscape and other significant accounting modifications affecting it.
