Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

The Financial Accounting Standards Board has adopted an Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) method to allow accountants and businesses better access to generally accepted accounting principles. Alternative Tax Solutions network of experienced accounting professionals are all proficient in both the codification system and generally accepted accounting principles. More importantly, our consultants know how to use them to improve your business accounting methods and to improve cash flow. Learn more about how specific codifications can be used to benefit your business:

  • ASC 360 (Long Lived Asset Impairment):

    The Financial Accounting Standards Board has determined that impairment to a long-lived asset may be reported only if the carrying amount of that asset is not recoverable from the sum of the undiscounted cash flows that can be expected to result from the use and eventual disposal of that asset and if the carrying amount exceeds the asset’s fair value. An experienced professional can help your assets meet this high standard.

  • ASC 718 (Stock Option Valuation):

    If a company had made employee equity grants and has audited financial reports, it is usually required to report the estimated value of this employee equity on its income statements. By improving the valuation of employee stock options and other equity, we can improve your overall financial portfolio and access to financing.

  • ASC 815 (Embedded Derivatives):

    This code section details the practices for required reporting of derivative products on financial services. These are defined as hedges on: (1) exposure to changes in a firm’s asset or liability, (2) exposure to variable cash flows, and (3) foreign currency exposure.

  • ASC 805 (Purchase Price Allocation):

    When a transaction qualifies as a business combination, it must be reported on financial disclosure statements. Our professionals can help your business determine which events qualify as business combinations and how the purchase price should be allocated.

  • ASC 350 (Goodwill Impairment Testing):

    There are many intangible assets of a business. The Code gives guidance on how to report such intangible assets as goodwill, software for internal use, and website development costs. Improving the accuracy of the valuation of these intangible assets can reduce your overall business tax liability and improve cash flow.

  • ASC 820 (Fair Value Accounting):

    This Code section creates a set of uniform guidelines for measuring the fair value of assets. By applying these guidelines effectively, we can improve the overall financial portfolio of your business.
