FAS (R) – Impact On The Accounting For Income Taxes | Corporate Counsel Business Journal
This Statement does not change many of the provisions of Opinion 16 and Statement 38 related to the application of the purchase method. The objective of FAS Rper Paragraph 1, “is to improve the relevance, representational faithfulness, and comparability of the information that a reporting entity provides in its financial reports about a business combination and its effects” To accomplish this objective, FAS R establishes guidance for how an acquirer recognizes and measures identifiable assets, assumed liabilities, and any noncontrolling interest in an acquiree and 114r how an acquirer recognizes and measures goodwill related to a business combination.
Any changes to the unrecognized tax benefits during the measurement period that do not relate to facts and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition date and subsequent to the measurement period are recorded as an adjustment to income tax expense. One significant difference is the measurement requirements for a noncontrolling interest in an acquiree. IFRS 3 as revised in provides the acquirer a choice for each business combination to measure a noncontrolling interest either at its fair value or on the basis of its proportionate interest in the identifiable net assets of fasv acquiree.
This Statement requires the acquirer to recognize goodwill as of the acquisition date, measured as a residual, which in most types of business combinations will result in measuring goodwill as the excess of the consideration transferred plus the fair value of any noncontrolling interest in the acquiree at the acquisition date over the fair values of the identifiable net assets acquired.
Users of financial statements also indicated a need for better information about intangible assets because those assets are an increasingly important economic resource for many entities and are an increasing proportion of the 1411r acquired in many business combinations.
Some of the Board’s constituents indicated that the pooling method should be retained for public policy reasons. Provide more complete financial information —the explicit criteria for recognition of intangible assets apart from goodwill and the expanded disclosure requirements of this Statement provide more information about the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in business combinations. Therefore, the acquirer will recognize separately from goodwill the acquisition-date fair values of research and development assets acquired in a business combination, which improves the representational faithfulness and completeness of the information provided in financial reports about the assets acquired in a business combination.
The Board concluded that its public policy goal is to issue accounting standards that result in neutral and representationally faithful financial information and that eliminating the pooling method is consistent with that goal. The single-method approach used in this Statement reflects the conclusion that virtually all business combinations are acquisitions and, thus, all business combinations should be accounted for in the same way that other asset acquisitions are accounted for-based on the values exchanged.
How the Changes in This Statement Improve Financial Reporting The changes to accounting for business combinations required by this Statement improve financial reporting because the financial statements of entities that engage in business combinations will better reflect the underlying economics of those transactions.

In developing this Statement, the Board also concluded that goodwill should be recognized as casb asset because it meets the assets definition in FASB Concepts Statement No.
For example, if an afsb incurs significant non-deductible costs for a potential acquisition, the quarterly effective tax rate would be increased by the resulting permanent difference. Because those 12 criteria did not distinguish economically dissimilar transactions, similar business combinations were accounted for using different methods that produced dramatically different financial statement results. She may be reached at Under FAS Rtransaction costs incurred as part of fsb business combination such as fees for investment banking, advisory, attorneys, accountants, valuation and other experts are to be expensed as incurred.
In the context of business combinations, neutrality means that the accounting standards should neither encourage nor discourage business combinations but rather, provide information about those combinations that is fair and evenhanded.
