leave a comment »

John Hufnagle, of Hayacasa consulting blog, has a good summary of the new ASU addressing a simplified method of assessing goodwill impairment at Goodwill Impairment Test.

The Grumpy Old Accountants (Professors Catanach and Ketz)  proceed to grump at Simplifying Goodwill Impairment Testing.  They are concerned 11-18 will allow management to postpone the day of goodwill impairment reckoning.

ASU 2011-18 can be found here.
