  • BPF eBlast

    A FASB initiative designed to simplify GAAP has yielded its first standard in 2015: The board is eliminating the concept of extraordinary items from GAAP. Previously, items deemed to be both unusual and infrequent were required to be classified as extraordinary on the income statement and segregated from the results of ordinary operations, shown net of tax, after income from continuing operations. Disclosures were also required. This simplification is designed to reduce costs and complexity while maintaining the usefulness of information provided to users. Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-01 describes the change. The new standard takes effect for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015 and early adoption is permitted.

Hear From our Clients

I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of working with Baker Peterson Franklin.

The Leon S. Peters board works with a team of professionals at BPF, and I appreciate the proactive and honest advice they give us. I especially like the knowledge and personalities of the BPF staff, and am fond of all the people there. Another observation is the length of service of the BPF staff and their low turnover because it is a great place to work. As a foundation, we appreciate that the BPF partners and staff are very involved with numerous civic and non-profit organizations and generously give back to our community. I highly recommend Baker Peterson Franklin to friends and colleagues.
