What Our Goodwill Impairment Testing Services Consider
- Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 350 and 360 and International Accounting Standards (“IAS”) 36 require that the book value of certain tangible and intangible assets, including goodwill, be tested for impairment. These tests are required to be performed annually or upon a triggering event.
- Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of an acquired entity over the net of the amounts assigned to assets and liabilities assumed. Post-business combination, goodwill is allocated to a reporting unit or units. Under ASC Subtopic 350-20-35-1, goodwill and certain intangibles are not amortized; rather, these assets must be periodically tested for impairment.
