Overview of the New AICPA Guide “Testing Goodwill for Impairment – Accounting and Valuation Guide”

Issued by the AICPA Impairment Task Force in November 2013, the new AICPA publication titled “Testing Goodwill for Impairment – Accounting and Valuation Guide,” provides non-authoritative accounting and valuation guidance for impairment testing of goodwill – specifically the qualitative assessment and the first step of the two-step test.

The purpose of the guide is to help preparers, auditors, and valuation specialists understand the requirements of FASB ASC 350, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other and FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements.

Led by Nathan DiNatale, Principal of SC&H Group’s Business Valuation and Litigation Support Services group, SC&H Group recently hosted a webinar that provides a chapter-by-chapter analysis of this new guide.

Following is an exclusive podcast with Mr. DiNatale who provides more insights into the framework behind the new AICPA guide.
