Improve Financial Reporting of Going Concern Entities

Cindy Fornelli
Executive Director
Center for Audit Quality

“The CAQ commends FASB for its efforts in developing a standard that provides guidance regarding a preparer’s responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern,  and, where required, to provide footnote disclosures about going concern uncertainties each reporting period.

“We believe the adopted ASU represents an improvement over the current going concern model and will provide users of financial statements with more clarity on the nature of conditions or events that may raise substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern.

“The CAQ encourages accounting and auditing standard-setters to continue to work together to develop complementary standards which would further benefit financial statement users.”
