Our summer series on presentation and disclosure continues with a focus on fair value disclosures for financial instruments and other assets.
Our Full disclosure podcast series brings you back to the basics on all things related to financial statement presentation and disclosure, from the top of the financial statements through the footnotes.
This week we focus on the fair value disclosure requirements. Chip Currie from our National Office is back in the guest seat to discuss key reminders with our host, Heather Horn.
Topics include:
  • 1:10 - The Basics. Chip and Heather begin by discussing some of the “core” fair value disclosure requirements and how the requirements evolved into their current state.
  • 9:32 - Leveling. Chip explains the objectives of fair value leveling classifications, how they’re determined by their inputs, and their presentation in the footnotes.
  • 23:58 - Additional requirements. Chip dives into additional required disclosures for public business entities and companies electing the fair value option.
  • 32:12 - Wrap up. Heather tries to stump Chip with two challenging questions, and Chip provides pointers on where to find additional resources as companies hone their fair value disclosures.
