FASB Votes to Delay Leases Standard Effective Date– October 16, 2019 by Marie Brilmyer

The FASB unanimously voted on October 16, 2019, to approve an additional delay for private companies on three major upcoming standards, one of which is the new leasing standard. The FASB voted to delay the leases standard effective date for private companies until after December 15, 2020 (January 1, 2021, for calendar year-end companies), and for interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021 (January 1, 2022, for calendar year-end companies). Early adoption will continue to be allowed.
The FASB is currently drafting a final Accounting Standards Update that will go to vote by written ballot.
