FASB Issues Proposed Updates for Future* Version of U.S. GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy Related to Proposed ASU on Crypto Assets
April 11, 2023
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has published proposed updates to the U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Financial Reporting Taxonomy related to a Proposed Accounting Standards Update on Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Crypto Assets. The proposed taxonomy updates will include new elements and reference modifications. The public comment period on the proposed updates will end on June 6, 2023.
These proposed updates to the U.S. GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy are some of many released throughout the year as proposed Accounting Standards Updates are issued. The U.S. GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy is published in the last quarter of each calendar year and incorporates all of these taxonomy updates. While each proposed taxonomy update has a public comment period, the annual release of the taxonomy version for that year does not provide a public comment period for feedback related to taxonomy changes for Accounting Standards Updates.
Comments should be submitted directly to the FASB. The SEC staff encourages filers, investors, analysts, software service providers, and other interested parties to participate in this public review to continue to improve the process for creating and using XBRL-structured financial statements.
Only annual compilations of the U.S. GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy that are specified on the Commission’s website may be used in SEC XBRL submissions. The availability for public comment of the proposed U.S. GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy update does not indicate Commission approval of any potential regulatory changes related to the EDGAR Filer Manual. Please refer to the SEC’s EDGAR webpage at https://www.sec.gov/edgar/filer-information/current-edgar-filer-manual for updated information on when the Commission approves changes, if any, related to the EDGAR Filer Manual.
*The taxonomy version for proposed updates related to proposed Accounting Standards Updates will be determined based on the effective date of each final Accounting Standards Update.
