Adoption Permitted for PCC Common Control Leasing VIE Guidance

Last week the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-07 Applying Variable Interest Entity Guidance to Common Control Leasing Arrangements. The ASU is the culmination of the development of the Private Company Council’s accounting alternative for variable interest entity (VIE) accounting.

This alternative is intended to provide qualifying private companies the opportunity to elect an accounting treatment that is less costly to, and more relevant than, existing US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) requiring the application of the VIE consolidation model to commonly controlled leasing arrangements.
