A loan receivable is recorded for loans that a reporting entity originates or purchases. Loans may be purchased individually, in pools, or as part of a business combination. A loan or portfolio of loans may also need to be recorded on the balance sheet as a result of applying the guidance in ASC 810, Consolidation. This chapter provides an overview of loan types and discusses the lender’s accounting for originated and purchased loans, including:
  • Classification of loans on the balance sheet as held for investment or held for sale
  • Accounting for loan origination fees and costs
This chapter also discusses the accounting for loan commitments and mortgage-banking activities.
Figure LI 4-1 illustrates the primary sources of authoritative guidance on accounting for loans and the recognition of interest income.
