Our summer series on presentation and disclosure continues with a focus on loans and receivables and the new CECL standard.
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 loans and receivables, including how the credit losses standard, with its current expected credit loss (CECL) model, changed the presentation and disclosure requirements. Tom Barbieri and Bret Dooley, PwC National Office partners, sat down with our host, Heather Horn, to share insights and reminders in the post-adoption world.
Topics include:
  • 2:06 - Balance sheet and income statement. Tom and Bret begin with an overview of what to present on two of the primary financial statements for loans and receivables.
  • 10:14 - Disclosure requirements. Tom highlights key disclosures for companies with loans receivable assets. He addresses requirements from  accounting policies through credit quality indicators.
  • 19:02 - Allowance for credit losses. Bret dives into the required disclosures for companies that develop an allowance reserve estimate and explains the information that financial statements users need to understand non-performing receivables.
  • 26:45 - Cash flows. Tom gives a few key reminders for getting the right geography when presenting loans in your statement of cash flows.
  • 28:40 - SEC filings and comment trends. Tom and Bret discuss interim presentation and disclosure requirements and comment trends from the SEC after the first year of CECL.
  • 33:04 - Wrap up. Heather tries to stump Tom and Bret with a few questions from pre-CECL periods before Tom and Bret provide some advice and resources when preparing credit disclosures.
