To the Point - FASB proposes guidance to clarify when profits interest awards are in the scope of ASC 718


Our publication discusses the FASB’s proposal to add an example to ASC 718 that would illustrate how an entity would apply the scope guidance to determine whether a profits interest award should be accounted for as a share-based payment arrangement.

The proposal would apply to all reporting entities that grant profits interest awards or similar awards. Comments are due by 10 July 2023.
