Hot Topic: ASU 2016-09

Here, in one place, is everything Equity Methods has published about ASU 2016-09 – FASB’s first significant revision to ASC 718 in 10 years.

In March 2016, FASB released its long-awaited updates to ASC 718. Officially dubbed Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09, the changes aim to simplify and improve financial reporting for employee share-based payment awards.

From elimination of the APIC poll to statutory withholding rates, we’ve unpacked what the updates mean and the effects they’re likely to have on issuers. We’ve also been in touch with companies who are adopting the revised standard early, and reported back on the issues they’re dealing with.
